CRAIG BERUBE is in midseason form. This can be a good thing or a bad thing when it comes to an NHL head coach finishing up his first-ever training camp. But when the team in front of you has been notorious for starting poorly over the last couple of seasons, it is, for him, the only way to go. So the quotes keep jumping from the page, as tonight the Flyers finish up a brutal preseason schedule that seems more like an act of revenge than one of negligence. He's "disappointed in our veterans and the way they performed" one night, fried at his shoddy defense the next.

IMAGINE, FOR one second, that the names and numbers were removed from the Flyers' jerseys during training camp. Imagine that contracts and salary-cap information were thrown out the window. Imagine that age really was just a number and experience counted only for as much as length of service in the NHL Players Association pension plan. Then judge the Flyers' defense. Pick the best six players and give them a name and a uniform number on Opening Night next Wednesday. Judging by that criteria alone, few who closely watched the Flyers this preseason would not have prospect Shayne Gostisbehere in their lineup at the Garden on Causeway Street in Boston.

WASHINGTON - The latest rumor barely rolled off a reporter's tongue and Ron Hextall grinned, albeit only for a second. "I'm not going to talk about trades," Hextall said. "But I will give you one other piece of advice: Don't believe everything you read. " The rumor, from TSN's Bob McKenzie, said Hextall is actively shopping a defenseman - particularly Luke Schenn or Nick Grossmann - in order to open up a space in the lineup for 2013 first-round pick Samuel Morin. Hextall wasn't happy.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Ronald Roberts will tell you that all he needs is a chance. The former St. Joseph's standout was not selected in the NBA draft in June. After he played summer-league ball for the 76ers and Miami Heat, Roberts thought he was destined to play professionally for Elan Chalon in France. But the Sixers, in need of an energetic reserve power forward, signed him in August. Roberts is one step closer to living out a dream. "Ever since I was little, my dream was to play in the NBA," said the Sixers rookie, who opted out of his contract with the French team.

CLAUDE GIROUX took a squirt from a water bottle and looked skyward toward the scoreboard. Only a little more than 100 seconds remained in the third period of the Flyers' utterly inconsequential exhibition against a roster resembling the Rangers in uniform only last night. Giroux had not been on the ice for nearly 8 minutes, part of Craig Berube's plan to manage the captain's workload in his first game of any kind since April 30. But the Flyers were on the power play. And Giroux wasn't going to pass up an opportunity to try to create chemistry with his new unit.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - You look at the 76ers' training camp roster before their initial workout yesterday and it seems certain that Michael Carter-Williams will start at point guard, once he's fully cleared from offseason shoulder surgery, Nerlens Noel will play power forward, and Henry Sims will start at center. Perhaps Hollis Thompson grabs the starting small forward position, but it's anybody's guess who might be the shooting guard come Opening Night on Oct. 29 in Indiana. One guess, and it might be a pretty good one, could be that it is rookie K.J. McDaniels, whom the team selected with the 32nd pick in June's draft.

IN THIS quick-hitting society where just about everything is immediate, patience is becoming a word whose meaning might soon be largely unknown. For now, though, three young men who could still be in their dorms doing what all college kids do are getting a Ph.D in patience. At yesterday's 76ers media day at the Wells Fargo Center, Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Michael Carter-Williams were shuttled, one-by-one, into a private room to answer questions from the gathered media, while their teammates were on the chilly arena floor doing other activities the day required of them.

Dressed in their white 76ers uniforms, Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Michael Carter-Williams trotted to the podium for their individual news conferences one after the other. The Sixers' version of the Big Three has taken center stage in Philadelphia. "I imagine me and Joel on the block," Noel said Monday at the team's media day. "Mike just using his length to get to the rim, finding me or Joel. . . . It's really going to be an easy thing for Mike to get to the basket and really create.

AND THE stockpiling of draft picks continues. The 76ers on Saturday completed a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers that landed them veteran guard Keith Bogans and a 2018 second-round draft pick. The Sixers gave up a protected second- round pick in 2015. Whether Bogans, an 11-year veteran who was traded from Boston to Cleveland on Thursday, will play with the Sixers is not yet known. He has 2 years remaining on a contract that will pay him a total of about $10.8 million, but those years are not guaranteed.

Keith Bogans became the newest 76er on Saturday, three days before the start of training camp. The Sixers acquired the veteran swingman and a 2018 second-round pick from Cleveland in exchange for a 2015 protected second-round pick. As a result, the Sixers became Bogans' third team in four days. The Cavaliers acquired the 11-year veteran on Thursday in a trade with Boston. According to a league source, the Sixers made the move to help the Cavaliers create a $5.3 million trade exception.
