*Here’s what stood out to Meltzer over the full course of the three-day training camp weekend. Lots of good stuff. [Flyers]

*Well, you don’t have to worry about that work stoppage that we were all worried about happening in 2020. The NHLPA has, interestingly, decided to let the CBA run through 2022. So then we’ll have a stoppage. [AP]
