*God August is so boring. Nick Foles decided not to wear #9 again to honor his time in Philly, I’m sure you’re all pretty emotional about that. Yay. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie on JvR, and why the Flyers might do well to look North for some advice on how to get the most out of The Reems. [The Athletic]

*Yesterday we had Meltzer making the case for a rookie filling the hole on the third line, and today, for balance, we’ve got the case for a vet. [Flyers]

*We’ve landed on our first tie in this year’s 25U25, with Tanner Laczynski landing at a shared #17 overall. [BSH]

*In other news, the Islanders’ new arena at Belmont is officially a go. [Lighthouse Hockey]

*Some teams that did not make the playoffs last season will probably make the playoffs this season. In the dead middle of August, this qualifies as Hockey News. [Yahoo Sports]

*And finally, a new episode of BSH Radio, in which it is just Bill and I, talking about some hockey things. [BSH]
