*Yesterday the fine folks at NBC released the national broadcast schedule for the upcoming season. Lots of Flyers games, folks! [BSH]

*The home opener is going to be nationally televised, which for some reason is annoying to me personally. [NBC Sports Philly]

*All in all 109 games will be nationally televised; full schedule can be found here. [ProHockeyTalk]

*After running through the almost-made-it guys, first up on this year’s official 25 Under 25 is Swedish defenseman Linus Hogberg. [BSH]

*In Former Flyers News™, Christian Folin has spent his summer working on his skating and is looking forward to making more of an impact in Montreal. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*A couple of our most recent draftees really impressed at the WJSS. [BSH]

*The regression monster eventually comes for us all, but these are the guys most likely to backslide in the upcoming season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*There have been a few buyouts this summer, some pretty notable. And those notable guys, like Kevin Shattenkirk, look pretty appealing if they’re willing to sign short-term and for cheap money. But is it always a good idea to gamble on a bought out player? [Yahoo Sports]

*And finally, just in case you didn’t get to it yesterday, have some fun building your $200 Flyers roster courtesy of DGB’s wonderfully distracting game. [The Athletic]
