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

  • The news from yesterday? The Flyers made a bunch of cuts, trimming the roster to 37, while Michael Leighton underwent an MRI. [BSH] [Inquirer] [CSN Philly]
  • Following the first round of cuts, the position battles become a bit more magnified. We'll have a story later today breaking down each remaining battle.
  • Despite his past, Nikolai Zherdev is a bit of an enigma in camp. [Delco Times] [Daily News]
  • The pathetic columnists at the Inqy are bashing hockey again. Somebody tell these schmucks to get a clever story idea together for once, huh? [Inquirer]
  • Tim McManus has a good read on Patrick Maroon from Sunday's paper. [Post Star]
  • It's a Flyers reunion tonight up in North Bay, Ontario as the NOJHL's North Bay Trappers will retire Bill Barber's number 9. The Trappers will be playing hosting to the Manitoulin Islanders in the game. The Islanders are coached by Reggie Leach. [North Bay Nugget]
  • The first sentence of this Helene Elliott story on John Stevens is pretty great: "The man who fired John Stevens as coach of the Philadelphia Flyers last December recommended him to the Kings six months later, and not because Paul Holmgren intended to sabotage them." [Los Angeles Times]
  • Mark Streit is out six months. The Islanders cannot replace him. [Lighthouse Hockey]
  • Compare the title of this 2010-11 Flyers preview at Bleacher Report with the title of our preview from a year ago. Hmmmm. [BSH] [B/R]
  • Finally, the Flyers are hosting their annual Sports & Entertainment Career Fair on December 8 at the Wells Fargo Center. [Comcast-Spectacor]
