Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...

  • Video highlights of yesterday's game: [Caps365]
  • Recap of the game: [Flyers]
  • First, let's commend Frank Seravalli for actually going to the rookie game in Virginia.  But seriously, another headline with Testwuide in it?!? Recap: [Frequent Flyers]
  • It's okay, we forgive him because of this fantastic breakdown of shots against Sergei Bobrovsky from Seravalli: [Frequent Flyers]
  • As such, we shouldn't rule out Bobrovsky making the Flyers: [Daily News]
  • The fourth straight Seravalli link: The crowded Flyers blueline means Oskars Bartulis is in a difficult spot, and he knows it: [Daily News]
  • Nikolai Zherdev is adjusting to the NHL and speaking English again: [CSNPhilly]
  • What does Bill Guerin's presence mean for the Flyers? "For the Flyers, I’d imagine Guerin’s presence is akin to a sugar-happy kid who..." Yeah, you want to see where that's going: [Flyers Faithful]
  • Peter Laviolette is eager to get training camp started: [Inquirer]
  • Panaccio's Training Camp Preview: [CSNPhilly]
  • "It's amazing what a surprise run to the Stanley Cup finals can do for the public perception of a franchise - and the people running it." Couldn't say it better myself. Poll of Flyers fans: [Daily News]
  • Lukas Krajicek signed in the Czech Extraliga, turning down one-way deals in the NHL: [euroflyers]
  • The Sharks wanted to add size to their blueline (just like the Flyers!) so they invited 6'3" 228-pound Andreas Lilja to camp on a tryout.  Yet the Flyers are paying 6'3" 227-pound Matt Walker $1.7 million.  And traded Simon Gagne for him. [NHL.com]
  • Looking at goaltender talent: "One of the biggest gaps in the league is between Roberto Luongo, Olympic Gold Medalist and Michael Leighton, obvious replacement-level goaltender (don't tell Paul Holmgren):" [Behind The Net]
  • The Stars signed James Neal and Matt Niskanen to two-year contracts: [NHL.com]
  • Sean Avery leaks the Rangers new third jerseys: [icethetics]
  • NHL referees and linesmen head to the bargaining table: [Down Goes Brown]
  • What's the mystery behind the Lightning's new system? My guess: Getting rid of two overpriced defensemen. [Puck Daddy]
  • Lastly, a hilarious new twitter account: "I've never seen anyone so proud to be disadvantaged. RT @Buccigross i've never had a housekeeper and i mow my own lawn.." [fakedanellis]
