*Day one of rookie camp is in the books! Here are five things to watch for as the train rolls on this week. [Flyers]

*Who are you most excited to see on the ice this week? [CSN Philly]

*One guy we are obviously all pumped to see is Nolan Patrick, who is healthy and ready to go, thanks in part to some summer time training sessions with one of the NHL's best forwards. [Inquirer]

*Hopefully Patrick and the rest of our highly-touted prospects perform well enough in camp to pressure Hextall into giving up on this "patience" thing. If they're ready let's go! [Courier-Post]

*Phantoms goalie (probably) Alex Lyon has a new mask and it's creepy. [CSN Philly]

*I personally find "life after hockey" stories to be pretty interesting, and this one on former Maple Leaf Rich Clune's turn as an actor is no different. [ESPN]

*And finally, in what should be no real shock, the Penguins are the odds-on favorite to win the Cup this season. Because they're the reigning champs. It'll change, fam. [ProHockeyTalk]
