*Obviously, the biggest story as we approach this upcoming season is going to continue to be which player wins himself the 3C job out of camp. This week, we’ll be taking a close look at the likely candidates and why they would (or would not) be a good fit. First up, Scott Laughton. [BSH]

*With Andrew MacDonald on the sidelines with the injury, Phil Myers should be given a real shot at earning a spot on the defense this year. Here’s hoping that shot is actually given to him. []

*As we head into camp, something to watch will be where Travis Konecny ends up in the lineup. Logically it ought to be the first line, given his success there, but know...Dave. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So, day one of rookie camp is in the books! Here’s how it went. [Flyers]

*And Charlie was on hand to put together some very good notes, for subscribers. [The Athletic]

*Meltzer had some thoughts about the Andrew MacDonald situation and what it might mean for the team. [Hockeybuzz]

*Okay so this isn’t about the Flyers, but it looks at a topic that might be interesting to us Flyers fans this season: the value in letting a guy just walk at the end of a contract, rather than trying to trade or extend him. [The Cannon]

*And finally...really need the Carolina Hurricanes to stop giving Dave Hakstol ideas. [Yahoo Sports]
