*CAN YOU SMELL THE HOCKEY?! Only four days ‘til preseason woooooooooo!

*Yesterday we took a look at the case for Scott Laughton at 3C. Today we look at...well, Jori. Let’s see how that looks. [BSH]

*Sean Couturier has been skating a bit ahead of training camp at the end of this week, but how worried do we need to be about that knee? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Maybe not so worried after all! [Philly.com]

*Man it will be super cool if Phil Myers makes this team out of camp. One thing is for sure, though: there’s no way that Hextall is going to sign some has-been defenseman to a PTO because of Andrew MacDonald’s injury. How do we know that for sure? Well, because John Boruk suggested it’d be a good idea, that’s how. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Truly, all eyes are on Phil. [Flyers]

*The Flyers’ top prospects aren’t the only thing worth watching at rookie camp, though. There were five undrafted players invited and they might make some noise too. So who are they? [BSH]

*Claude Giroux is one of a handful of players who had monster seasons last year, and each of them explains what clicked for them. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The NHL has entered into arbitration with the folks suing them for concussion damages, but apparently that doesn’t mean Gary Bettman is going to admit any fault whatsoever. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, a brand new BSH Radio! Charlie is back, we talk about who should make the team out of camp. It’s good stuff, friends. [BSH]
