*If you think about it, the home opener is practically tomorrow. Like, today is almost over, and Friday is the day, so that’s like one day. Excited yet?! Maybe Ryan Ellis will play, that’ll be good, right? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Its fair to ask why the Flyers elected to go with this guy they just claimed off of waivers rather than a player they already had in-house. And they answer is apparently, “because the numbers told them to.” [Inquirer]

*Charlie looks at that choice as well as other Roster Things that you might be wondering about. [The Athletic]

*If you’re thinking of placing any bets on the Flyers this year, the odds are... in your favor? You’ll win lots of money if they hit, is what I’m saying. [BSH]

*Yet another Metropolitan Division preview has made one thing pretty clear: no one is expecting much out of the Washington Capitals this season. [The Athletic]

*Friedman’s latest 30+ Thoughts include a few about your Flyers. [Sportsnet]

*Dave Hakstol’s season kicked off last night and he’s hoping this season will be something of a rebound year for him. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Nathan MacKinnon has Covid, and while he seems to be fine... yikes for the Avs. [Mile High Hockey]

*Hopefully we have some brand new Flyers fans joining us this season and, with a whole new fanbase in the league, it might be good to go over some of the weirder NHL rules. Like overtime rules. [NBC Sports Philly]

*There’s also all of this weird lingo that, if you’ve been around a while, you just take for granted. But new fans should know what wheels are, too. [Davy Jones’ Locker Room]

*And finally, BSH Radio has moved to Mondays for the season, which means you’ve got a brand new episode to enjoy! [BSH]
