Thursday Morning Fly By: Recapping a Loss and Deadline Day

Today's open discussion thread, including your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news...

  • Last night's NHL scores... Flyers 4 - Panthers 7; WAS 3 - BUF 1; VAN 6 - DET 3; CHI 5 - EDM 2; COL 4 - ANA 3; MIN 4 - CAL 0
  • Recaps of last night's loss:  [BSH] [Litter Box Cats] [Inquirer] [Daily News] [DelcoTimes] [CSNPhilly]
  • Heading over here for last night's 3 stars might not interest you, but the picture on the side is well worth it:  [Puck Daddy]
  • Then, a ton of writers took on the deadline.  Lots of excuses. [BSH] [Inquirer] [DelcoTimes] [CSNPhilly] [Frequent Flyers]
  • Not to take a swing at MSM writer, but just have to point this out:  "But [Vokoun] is not worth Carter. Not even close. Oh, and Vokoun's cap hit is $5.7 million. No thank you. This just in: Waiver-wire wonder Michael Leighton has been every bit as good as Vokoun since the Flyers plucked him from Carolina." [Inquirer]
  • As mentioned in the game thread, this seems pretty accurate:  "But to the surprise of no one, the Flyers will enter the postseason with a terrific group of forwards, an impressive defense and a question mark in goal. Just. Like. Every. Other. Year. GRADE: D" [Puck Daddy]
  • This is the first time since 1993 the Flyers have not made a single deadline trade. [Daily News]
  • This is in the recap, but it's worth publishing again:  "Homer: 'I never made one call on a goalie'" [John Boruk]
  • This is just another one of those casualties of writing before last night's game:  "Laviolette, Leighton Pleased Flyers Stood Pat." [CSNPhilly]
  • I think everyone can agree, David Booth earned a lot of respect last night.  Here's video and quotes:  [Puck Daddy]
  • The Phantoms lost last night, 4-1. [PostStar]
  • With John Grahame being plucked off waivers by the Avalance (Mile High Hockey), the Phantoms recalled goaltender Jeremy Duchesne "He's been OK in 19 games there. Not the most exciting deadline day news." [Tim McManus]
  • Not known for his hockey writing, John Smallwood says the Flyers are similar to the Sixers. Ugh. [Daily News]
  • Jacob De Serres stopped 22 of 25 shots in a 5-3 Brandon win over Adam Morrison's team.  Morrison didn't play. [Luber's Lounge]
  • Lastly, some good news:  Joacim Eriksson continues to play well, stopping 32 of 34 shots in a 3-2 OT win.  [euroflyers]  Even better news? He criticized his own play.  High standards are good.  [euroflyers]
