Finally, finally, finally! Sweeeeet Baby Jesus, hockey season is finally here in St. Louis!

Blues News:

  • Since it's never wise to bank on going on a second half hot streak, the Blues plan to not suck during the 1st half. Dynamite plan, boys. [STLToday]
  • Hey, the Cardinals are so desperate for news on SBNation that they dared to turn their heads toward the local puckheads. [SBNation]
  • Hull statue coverage comes on at 6 on FS-MW. Game's at 7. Still sucks to be on Dish Network. [STLToday]
  • From the ol' Gmail submissions: Do you want tacos? I sure do. [PetitionOnline]

NHL News:

  • Down Goes Brown looks at specific prognostications for the upcoming season [DGB]
  • All of last night's scores. [TSN]

  • Terrible Self-Promotion [Huffington Post]

Brett Hull:

Just like when Al got his statue, we're giving Brett his own section in the links. We're just that nice here at Game Time.

  • As a comic book nerd AND a Brett Hull fan, having all three comics was pretty much the high mark of my childhood. [eBay]
  • Just in case you ever needed statistical confirmation that Brett Hull was good at hockey. [Hockey Reference]

Y'know who I really like? Brett Hull

Come on back for the first real GDT of the year!
