*Cam York and Bobby Brink have themselves a shiny gold medal! What a fun game that was. What a birthday present for Cam. You love to see it.

*Hockey is back and so are Charlie’s observations. Nature is healing and Charles has all the good bits from Camp Day One. [The Athletic]

*A lot has been made — on the internet, mostly. By whiny journalists, mostly. — about Nolan Patrick’s lack of comments when he had his press availability. Does this matter? [NBC Sports Philly]

*All that really matters is that he’s back. Being back is good for him, and if he’s good it’s good for us. [ProHockeyTalk]

*It’s a feel-good story, folks! So let’s feel good about it! [BSH]

*Okay so defensemen at training camp. One assumes the top six are set, but who are we looking at here? [BSH]

*Speaking of, Shayne Gostisbehere knows about the rumors. And the disappointments. But he wants to stay here anyway. [Inquirer]

*Day two of training camp was more fun than one, and Charlie gives out some major awards to mark the occasion. [The Athletic]

*A Flyers season preview by the numbers, which acknowledges that the Flyers make absolutely no sense, even to the smart people. Also Sean Couturier is elite. [The Athletic]

*Carter Hart also got some love in the aforementioned preview, and got a little more from our pals covering the Caps. [Japers’ Rink]

*That said, Carter Hart can’t play every game. So is the team shored up enough behind him to make it through? [BSH]

*There’s also the matter of the taxi squad to sort. Though it seems pretty obvious who will stay with the team. [BSH]

*The league’s new divisions also have new names. [ProHockeyTalk]

*31 Thoughts, including one that confirms that the Flyers were in on Laine but out pretty quickly. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, DGB on who we should all be keeping an eye on this season. Because they’re interesting. [The Athletic]
