*On Oskar Lindblom, the Flyers’ depth, and how both of these things should be better this season than they were in the last. []

*Charlie takes a look at which kids are most - and least - likely to make the team this season out of training camp. [The Athletic]

*We take a deep-dive into microstats to see which of the Flyers’ forwards are most effective at their jobs. [BSH]

*Meltzer has a little bit of something on Morgan Frost for your morning consumption. [Hockeybuzz]

*Poor Steve Mason. He’s really taken a big tumble, eh? [The Hockey News]

*Looks like the NHL might be settling the big concussion lawsuit against them. Which is interesting. [TSN]

*The Blackhawks’ Winter Classic jerseys are stupid enough of this dumb team already. [Icethetics]

*In the latest “the NHL hates fun” news, keg stands on the Cup are no longer allowed. [ProHockeyTalk]
