*If we’ve learned nothing from the Western Hockey League, it’s the over the last 20 years people whose children end up playing hockey have a wild preclusion for naming their boys hilarious names. Let’s see how the Flyers’ latest teenaged additions stack up. [BSH]

*It is now July 29 and we are still waiting on an Ivan Provorov contract, which means we still get to try and guess what Ivan Provorov’s contract will be. [NBC Sports Philly]

*One of the guys seen as a pretty solid comparable for Provy, contract-wise, is Charlie McAvoy, who also remains unsigned. And Jacob Trouba, the one big RFA defenseman fish who has signed, is probably not a good comparable for either of them. [Yahoo Sports]

*ESPN has ranked the teams based on their offseason, and it would appear that Chuck’s moves have not impressed. [ESPN]

*What if you made a hockey team, the lineup of which was staffed only with celebrity Flyers fans? This. This is what. [BSH]

*Gritty, but make him digital. [NBC Sports Philly]

*On some hockey players who had a pretty good last season but may not have a pretty good this season. [Yahoo Sports]

*Lest you forget, some of these hockey players are just ridiculous human beings. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Did you miss this week’s Flyperbole? If you’ve never listened, for whatever reason, give this one a try. It’s hilarious. [BSH]

*And finally... you know what time it is, folks. Late July? Nothing happening in the hockey world? 25 Under 25 time baby! Get your rankings in. It’s fun to see what the collective fan base things of these guys. [BSH]
