*The world is on fire, but Alain Vigneault is doing nice things for the kid the Flyers drafted this year. Making dreams come true and such. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of dreams coming true, BAMF Brian Elliott says this team can win it all. [Inquirer]

*The hockey games are going to come fast and furiously once we get started next week, so we dove into the schedule to see where the toughest stretches lie. [BSH]

*If you were wondering about Nolan Patrick’s ability to play, he took a big hit in practice yesterday and got right up and kept going. Good to see. [Inquirer]

*We’ve heard a lot about Carter Hart’s sports psychologist, and how using one has allowed him to grow into the extremely centered and calm hockey player we’re lucky to have on our team. But did you know Danny Briere used one ages ago? [NBC Sports Philly]

*We’re going to have to care about the Buffalo Sabres this season. That’s going to be so weird. [Flyers]

*Cam York gets a little love in Scott Wheeler’s official gold medal game post-mortem. [The Athletic]

*And finally, now that Wayne Simmonds is playing in the center of the hockey universe, people are going to start noticing: he absolutely rules. [The Athletic]
