*Bored yet? Whatever; the Flyers still need to sign Ivan Provorov and Travis Konency, so that’ll happen at some point. Eventually. Hopefully. Here’s what is up with that. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Paul Holmgren’s retirement may seem like a stand-alone event, but if you think about it, everything that has happened to this team over the last year is pretty intertwined. [BSH]

*And in that vein, Bill Meltzer penned a pretty lovely article about his own personal feelings about Homer’s retirement. [Flyers]

*Morgan Frost making the team out of camp would be so fun. It almost certainly won’t happen because The Hockey Men demand AHL service, but boy would it be fun. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of prospects, we’ve got a lot of good ones playing in the NCAA rather than major junior right now. [Flyers]

*This will be the first year in quite a few years that no one in the Flyers’ front office is on the hot seat. Something very soothing about that. Anyhoo, there are a lot warm seats out there. [ProHockeyTalk]

*It remains odd that Jake Gardiner has not yet been signed by anyone. Very strange. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Of all the cockamamie ways folks have suggested the NHL might increase goal scoring, this one seems like the simplest and most logical way to try to do it. [On The Forecheck]
