*We are halfway through training camp and only five more sleeps until hockey, so let’s pause a moment and take stock of some things we’ve learned so far. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In that vein, Charlie looks at which players are heading into the home stretch on the rise, and which guys really need to pick it up to have a shot. [The Athletic]

*Joel Farabee is feeling pretty good. Bigger, too. That won’t hurt. [Inquirer]

*NHL general managers — in the best of times, some of the most boring and risk-averse people in the world — are planning for a very slow season trade-wise, due to the pandemic restrictions and mixed-up divisions. So yeah, no one is getting traded this year fam. [Sportsnet]

*The Boston Bruins have a new captain, and they gave him the good news in a pretty funny way. [NBC Sports Boston]

*This is fun: a bunch of hockey experts watched the WJC Final together. On a group text. Good insights from people on the inside. [The Athletic]

*And finally, it’s been a rough week. Again. Spend an hour or so on your Friday with BSH Radio. Escape into the hockey, and the nonsense. [BSH]
