*We’re back, baby! Well, sort of. Training camp opens today, officially! The Flyers will be back on the ice in Vorhees today getting ready for the ‘yoffs to get going. It’s a weird and wild time, folks. Anyhoo, as part of their newly ratified agreement, NHL players have until tonight to decide if they’ll opt out of playing or not. So far, these are the players electing to sit out. [TSN]

*We’ve got the full schedule for the initial games, now. So plan your life. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We also got a full rundown of the important dates for finishing out this season’s business and getting ready for next season. Free agency in October baby let’s roll! [ProHockeyTalk]

*While the CBA agreement signed at the end of last week is very nearly just an extension of that last one, there are some key changes worth noting. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*The Flyers’ schedule for the round robin is pretty interesting for a couple of reasons. [BSH]

*So, things are looking good now, but what if everything goes wrong? What could “worst case” look like? [Sportsnet]

*Right. Well, we wrapped up Rivalry Week Friday by running through why we hate the New York Rangers... [BSH]

*... and, because it felt right, why we hate the Flyers. And love them so much. [BSH]

*Sean Couturier was given what should be only the first of his offseason awards this year. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Can’t see the team retaining him given the whole flat cap sitch, but Tyler Pitlick was a wonderful surprise on the fourth line this season. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And after a somewhat disappointing 2018-19 season, Ivan Provorov came out and proved that it was nothing more than a speed bump on his road to greatness. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally... the Flyers were legit Cup contenders when the league shut down. No reason to think any differently now. LFG. [Inquirer]
