*It’s the last game of the preseason tonight and precisely one week until the real season starts! Don’t know about you guys but it’s very exciting!! Anyhoo, Rasmus Ristolainen has not been good. Pretty much ever. But that doesn’t mean he can’t be good now! [Inquirer]

*Big news yesterday was the Flyers announcing their two new inductees into the franchise Hall of Fame. [BSH]

*All of the candidates were clearly deserving of a spot, but it’s hard to argue against their two selections. [Flyers]

*If you had to pick one Flyer to be traded this season, who’d you go with? [The Athletic]

*Teams USA and Canada have already started to name players for their respective Olympic National Teams, which is wild. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Speaking of Canada, the teams up there are looking forward to being able to play teams down here again. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Carey Price has voluntarily entered the league’s player assistance program; here’s hoping he’s able to conquer whatever he’s fighting right now. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*Robin Lehner’s recent comments have put the spotlight on the NHL’s reliance on medication, name sleep aids. Why? Because sleeping is a big problem for these guys. [Sportsnet]

*What if instead of New Year’s resolutions we made New Season’s resolutions? Like, for example: “be kinder to each other” or “settle down it’s just sports.” [The Athletic]

*And finally, this week’s brand new Flyperbole takes on the goal song controversy. Which you know will be hilarious. [BSH]
