*It would appear the hockey world started Labor Day weekend early, ‘cause folks! The links are few. Let’s kick off with, arguably, the most exciting prospect we’ve got on the way: Morgan Frost. [BSH]

*Matt Niskanen has always been seen as a leader, but now he’s got a new crop of guys to deal with. [Courier-Post]

*A competition for the #1 spot in goal? Seems like an easier answer but Carter Hart is probably going to have to prove it. [Inquirer]

*After lackluster years by pretty much every player on this roster, it’ll be interesting to see which guys respond most to the new coaching staff. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Gritty is hosting his own 5k for charity in October, if you like to torture yourself by running. [Fox29]

*Bill Meltzer finishes up his version of the Flyers’ lines with the fourth. [Flyers]

*After working his way through his line predictions, Meltzer offers a little bit more explanation, which is interesting to read. [Hockeybuzz]

*On the NHL fan experience, and ways in which it can be made better, so then maybe we don’t boo as much. [ESPN]

*And finally... slide into this nice long weekend with a brand new Flyperbole! There’s some hockey mixed in with the sitcom discussion, I promise you. [BSH]
