*Friends we have reached the back half of August which means we are slipping and sliding head-first into training camp time. It’ll be here before you know it! Anyhoo, the Flyers have signed one of their newest draft picks to his ELC. [BSH]

*Samu might be one to watch; apparently the kid’s got wheels. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of prospects, we got a little bad news about one of the prospects fans seem most excited about right now. [BSH]

*And speaking of excitement, the Flyers are starting to hit some people’s radar ahead of the start of the season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Swinging things back around to the not-exciting: Nolan Patrick, we hardly knew ye. [BSH]

*Your pal Bill Meltzer had some various and sundry thoughts over the weekend, as is his way. [Hockeybuzz]

*And finally, the NHL hasn’t yet mandated that its players get vaccinated to protect themselves and others from the still-churning viral pandemic. But if players choose not to, they might end up having a real bad time. [The Athletic]
