*Happy NHL opening day, Flyers fans! As you all know the Flyers don’t open ‘til Friday, but the league opens today, which means we finally got the Flyers’ full active roster yesterday afternoon. Opening night lineup is set! [Flyers]

*When we all gather down at The Farg on Friday night, we’ll be welcomed with a new set of rules aimed at making the game-watching experience more enjoyable for everyone. [Inquirer]

*You may have noticed a new name on that list — a guy the Flyers picked up from waivers yesterday and plopped right on to the active roster. [BSH]

*Let’s take a look at five questions facing the team heading into Friday’s opener. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of questions... how’d you feel about the preseason? It’s just the preseason, sure, but there were some... concerns. Charlie dives into what we should be worried about and what we should let go. [The Athletic]

*How’s about the full division? Seems like a good time to preview that. [Inquirer]

*Here’s another one for you. People sure are high on the Islanders this year! Again! [ProHockeyTalk]

*Speaking of predictions, Frank Seravalli has some wild ones. [Daily Faceoff]

*The Experts have weighed in on all of the league’s active goaltenders to rank them in tiers. Not a ton of surprises here, but interesting nonetheless. [The Athletic]

*There are quite a lot of “old” guys playing in the NHL right now. Which is honestly kind of cool. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, on hockey fandom, and fandom in general, and how sometimes life leads us into places we never thought we’d go. [BSH]
