*The Flyers’ options at center remained the one lingering question as we head into the start of the preseason festivities, so Chuck went ahead and filled in that hole a little bit with another bottom-6 C option for Alain Vigneault to consider. [BSH]

*Vigneault has some history with the new hire too, which might make his decision easier. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie breaks down the signing, as only Charlie can. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of contracts, it’s a contract season for Sean Couturier, arguably the Flyers’ most important player at the moment. So it’s going to be a big season. Big big season. [The Athletic]

*Our last-season reviews continue with everyone’s favorite youth, Joel Farabee... [BSH]
