Things to keep in mind heading into the season opener:
- 23-man roster must be submitted to the NHL office by 5:00 p.m. ET. Pens yesterday cut their roster down to 23. Can't foresee any changes. Also can't see the roster looking the same at the end of the season.
- Keep an eye on Marc-Andre Fleury. He needs to get off to a good start tomorrow and get his season feng shui rolling. Big divisional test to start the campaign off.
- Will the blue line hold? It gets pretty young after Letang, Orpik and Niskanen.
- Will the Tangradi-Malkin-Neal line work? Will it?
Enough questions. Enough predictions. Enough waiting.
Drop the puck.
