NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*Very exciting day yesterday, as a key player was locked up long term by his organization. Talking, of course, about the Svechnikov extension! [Canes Country]

*KIDDING. It was Coots Day yesterday and it’s going to be Coots time for the next eight years as the Flyers locked up arguably their best player for the longest possible term. [BSH]

*Charlie breaks down the details of the deal. [The Athletic]

*The contract Chuck worked out with Couturier turns out to be a real bargain for the Flyers, but still gives Coots the raise he has earned. [NBC Sports Philly]

*If he plays out this contract, Sean Couturier will be the longest-tenured Flyer in the organizations history. That’s wild! [Inquirer]

*The contract is unquestionably a good one, but deals this long don’t come without a little risk. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Anyway remember that little Derick Brassard signing? That was good too. [Flyers]

*Also, Dev Camp is upon us!! Here’s a look at the forwards we’ll be seeing this weekend. [Flyers]

*And finally, just in time for your weekend... new BSH Radio! A lot to talk about, obviously. All good stuff. [BSH]
