Labor Day Open Thread

It's Labor Day. Most of you aren't working today. But do us a favor and be really nice to the people that do have to work today. They probably don't want to be working today.

Good morning campers. Zeke has the day off today, so let's just talk. How are things with you?

A new hockey season is around the corner. We normally pick up some new readers and commenters over the summer and at the beginning of the season. And in typical Predators fashion, the experts have Nashville picked to finish anywhere from 1st through 5th in the division. Plus, the narratives are the same as they ever were. Either Nashville "relies on scoring by committee" or "comes after you in waves" or "has no one superstar forward they rely on" to describe their scoring depth.

What we're saying is: there's a lot of things that could happen.

So let's take a day to stretch our minds out, and enjoy a pleasant Monday that would normally be crushing your soul by this time.

Here's some quick news:
