*We’ve got to get through today together, friends, and then it’s opening day. An opening day with the Flyers in our own timezone. Playing the Penguins, who did not make the playoffs. Unfortunately for these seven guys, they won’t be a part of the fun. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie highlights the Flyers’ impressive depth as he runs down his observations from Sunday’s scrimmage. [The Athletic]

*New guy Erik Gustafsson hasn’t had much time to gel with his new teammates, but he’s ready to roll anyway. [Inquirer]

*It was essentially official when Elliotte Friedman first reported it, but now it’s official official: the Flyers will play the Bruins in Lake Tahoe next month. [Flyers]

*I mean... just look at this. LOOK AT THIS!!!!

*Anyhoo, let’s look backward at some prospect goodness; specifically, how the Flyers’ kids did at the WJC. [BSH]

*It was also a big weekend for a couple of the Flyers’ prospects playing on college teams. [BSH]

*And while we’re doing this, how’s about the whole shebang? PROSPECT REPORT! [BSH]

*The guys not playing most of the games may end up being one of the most important parts of a team in this weirdo season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Gary Bettman opened his mouth again yesterday, for some reason. [CBC]

*This is the time for predictions, and we’ve got some to get through. Like these, which include Friend Of The Site Micah McCurdy. [TheScore]

*At least one of these predictions will make some of you people very excited. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, like most predictors, DGB doesn’t have the Flyers pegged as sure-thing winners. We shall see, friends. We shall see. [The Athletic]
