*Oh sure you’re at work on a Friday morning and will likely have to find some illicit means of watching the season opener, inexplicably scheduled on a weekday afternoon. Who cares, it’s go time, baby! And just to keep you on your toes, Alain Vigneault’s lines for this afternoon’s tilt are absolutely batshit. God I love this team. [Courier-Post]

*Scott Burnside went deep behind the lines of the Flyers’ front office that brought you those lines. [The Athletic]

*Ahead of the game we’ve got some divisional previews for you: first up, we take a look at the boys who will be mixing it up with the Flyers in the Metro. [BSH]

*The Atlantic is always interesting, given how top-heavy it is. We’ll see if that changes at all. [BSH]

*If you’re going to stay up late for games, the Pacific is the way to go. A lot of potential for fun out there. [BSH]

*So, now that it is over, who would you name as your biggest preseason disappointment? [NBC Sports Philly]

*The goaltending picture for the Flyers should be pretty well set, no? Probably. [BSH]

*The Flyers have a new alternate captain in the mix to start the year. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It’s quite possible that the most important player on the Flyers this season is one of the new guys. [Courier-Post]

*And finally... what better way to kill an hour before the game than with this week’s brand new BSH Radio! [BSH]
