PHILADELPHIA – Claude Giroux wasn’t going to shoot pucks. Really, he wasn’t. He was going to wait, as was suggested by the training staff and the doctors until sometime next week.

But this is Giroux after all, and his noted competitive drive may have taken over for just a tad.

So there he was, with the early morning group on the second day of training camp firing pucks at the net, definitely ahead of schedule.

So, how did it feel?

PHILADELPHIA – Marc-Andre Bourdon’s comeback from a concussion has been delayed again.

Bourdon was originally scheduled to skate with the second session group but didn’t. General manager Paul Holmgren said Bourdon is “still not ready to take part in practice” and remains “day-to-day.”

I ran into Bourdon after practice was completed for the day and he said he doesn’t think he’s ready to skate with the group yet, but said he will still skate on his own.

He said he’s not sure when he will be ready.

PHILADELPHIA – There was a rangy left wing wearing No. 12 at the first practice session on the first day of training camp Thursday morning.

It may not have been the No. 12 the fans were hoping for, but if the Flyers scouts are correct, this No. 12 could bring a new love affair between player and fan.

Meet Michael Raffl, the sniper winger whom the Flyers signed last May.

It appears the Flyers are planning on a very competitive training camp.

Last week it was veteran defenseman Hal Gill accepting a professional try out contract with the Flyers, this week it's veteran left win Daniel Cleary.

Cleary signed a PTO with the Flyers Tuesday and will be in camp with the team Thursday.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Taylor Leier to a puck to the face Sunday and needed 12 stitches on his lower cheek to close the wound.

He tweeted out a photo of the damage, and as expected had a bit of a scowl on his grill.

It's a good bet the cut hurts just a little bit less today.

That's because Leier, 19, signed his entry-level contract with the Flyers Monday.

VOORHEES, N.J. – The other day Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said – in so many words – you can never have enough defensemen.

He wasn’t kidding.

Already with nine defensemen in training camp on one-way contracts, the Flyers decided to make the competition on the blue line a bit more spirited.

The Flyers signed veteran defenseman Hal Gill to a Professional Try-Out contract and he will attend camp with the team.

One of the great challenges when producing a series like “Flight Plan” is making sure there is a good story line throughout each episode.

It’s easy to just shoot video and throw clips together without a story arc, but then there is a real good chance that the episode will come off as lackluster.

So, the idea going into each episode is to have something gritty and interesting that will offer a form of riveting entertainment.

Sometimes, in documentary form, the story writes itself. Other times it has to be manufactured. Either way, as a producer, you are at the mercy of the moment.

Bits and pieces of the Flyers pre-season daily schedule have been filtering out in the public for about a month now and I am getting a lot of questions about it both on Twitter and via email.

So, here it is, day-by-day:

So, Flight Plan has lived on the web site for five days now, and thousands of Flyers fans have tuned in.

For the most part, the responses on social media have been positive, and that’s a good thing.

But, that doesn’t mean that what was presented has not garnered some sort of criticism along the way.

Some of them were valid. Others, were not. That’s O.K. It’s how the world works after all.

That said, I figured I’d use this time to address a few of these discussion points that may have been mistaken or misleading and tell you some of the things that you did not see on Flight Plan.

First let’s address Chris Pronger.

Chris Pronger, here working with Flyers assitant coach Kevin McCarthy (left) and defenseman Luke Schenn, was more integral to the scouting of defenseman than it appeared in the first episode of Flight Plan.

Yes, Pronger was part of the scouting meetings – and he wasn’t flown in just to show his bearded mug on in the episode.

No, Pronger actually was helping the Flyers scout some young defensemen last season. He travelled some to check out many of the guys the Flyers were considering in the first round.

He was one of those “secondary scouts” Mark Greig was talking about in Flight Plan.

Pronger also contributed to the meeting talking about the defensemen he saw play, as well as a philosophical approach to drafting defensemen.

So, why didn’t he chime in on Morin?

Well, he didn’t see him play in person!
