Yesterday was the start of training camp when important things happened. The players donned their uniforms and performed the most important task of Picture Day!
First, Zdeno Chara entered a room that was too hot.

Then Jake DeBrusk and Matt Grzelcyk played a game of “Who wore it better?”

Personally, I’m a big Cap fan so I’m saying Gryzz wore it better.
Another thing that happened yesterday was word on contract talks with one of the Bruins defensemen. Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reported on contract talks between Charlie McAvoy and the Bruins
Meanwhile, talks between the Bruins and Charlie McAvoy have also picked up this week. There’s been progress there. Werenski’s deal has helped move things along. Still work to be done but it’s at least moving.

Hold up! Later in the evening, word broke that the Philadelphia Flyers signed one of their defensive RFAs, which could complicate things with McAvoy.
$6.75M AAV for Provorov. He reports to camp tomorrow and will sign the contract.

Thanks for screwing with us, Philly!
