*IT'S GAME DAY, BITCHES!!!! Get pumped. Let's go.

*Okay but don't get like, too pumped, because here's the projected lineup. Brandon Manning in, rookie defensemen out. Great choice there. [Hockeybuzz]

*You'll notice that Matt Read has made his way all the way through to the Phantoms. [Inquirer]

*It's going to be a big year for the Flyers' big three players. [Inquirer]

*Apparently Ron asks a lot of his young players. One of the things he asks is to enjoy Allentown but whatever I'm not mad. [Daily News]

*So you have some time to kill before this extremely late night hockey game? We've got you covered. Pregame playlists. [BSH]

*And given that it is the first day of the new season, we've got predictions and previews galore. First up, 31 bold predictions from our old pal Frank. [TSN]

*Insider predictions for the league as a whole. [Sportsnet]

*The nuts over at USA Today are already predicting Cup winners! [USA Today]

*And now, the division previews. We've got one from Dave Isaac, one from the smart folks over at NHL Numbers, and one from the fine people at Puck Daddy. None are particularly favorable to us. The Metro is going to be LIT, you guys.

*On the analytical darlings and duds in the NHL as we kick things off. [TSN]

*And finally, the absolute best way to kill all this time before a 10PM start? An extended season preview episode of BSH Radio! [BSH]
