*Well, if every game is going to be that fun, we’re going to have a great time. 56-0, obviously. RECAP!

*Gritty, for his part, worked really hard to get into the building and wants to be sure no one misses his presence. [Inquirer]

*ICYMI, Charlie ran down the roster we got our first look at last night. [The Athletic]

*Nolan Patrick is going to play an extremely big role in the success of this club, if they hope to achieve it. [BSH]

*He’s not alone, though. There are a few guys that have something to prove — to us, to the team, to themselves — this season. [BSH]

*Even before they took the ice last night, the Flyers were winners. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers are obviously safe, but there are a few teams that made last year’s weirdo playoffs that may be on the outside this year. [Yahoo Sports]

*Speaking of non-playoff teams, we asked our pals what we should expect from the Devils this year. [BSH]

*We asked about the Bruins, too. [BSH]

*Some folks aren’t all that excited about the prospect of NHL hockey being played right now. And that’s okay! [Winging It In Motown]

*DGB makes very specific predictions for each team in the league. His Flyers prediction is extra hot spicy! [The Athletic]

*And finally, did you miss this week’s audio content? The BSH Radio gang makes predictions for the whole league and the Flyperbole Boys look a short distance ahead at the Flyers first week in action.
