*The actual Flyers aren’t doing anything so, if we’ve learned anything from sports beats, that means we should check in on some Former Flyers! Jordan Weal seems to be doing well up in Montreal, and is apparently being looked at as the solution to the Habs’ PP problems. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*The Maple Leafs continue to collect questionable Flyers cast-offs, this time signing Matt Read to a PTO. Hopefully he gets a job out of it; everyone loves Matt Read. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*And from former Flyers to future ones... have you guys been watching the World Junior Summer Showcase? Joel Farabee, in particular, looks fantastic. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of fantastic, there is going to be a lot riding on Carter Hart’s shoulders from the jump this season. Turning around a franchise is a lot to ask of a kid his age. [The Athletic]

*While we are on the subject, how do we see AV splitting time between Hart and our old pal BAMFBE? [NBC Sports Philly]

*That big hole on third line wing is still hanging out there, which means we still have some fun stuff to speculate about in August, the most boring month of the NHL offseason. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We have our own RFA stuff going on but the Mitch Marner situation up in Toronto continues to be spicy enough to pay attention to. Now it looks like his camp wants to bridge, but a BIG bridge. Like... New Brunswick to PEI-level bridge. [Yahoo Sports]

*And finally... if you’ve not yet read The Athletic’s reporting on Paul Fenton’s reign in Minnesota, you must. It’s so compelling, the breadth of the dysfunction. If you don’t subscribe scroll back up, click on Charlie’s article, and sign up for your trial from there and then read this piece. It’s amazing. [The Athletic]
