Friday Morning Fly By: Shootout Loophole

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

  • Recaps of last night's loss: [BSH] [CSNPhilly] [Philly Sports Daily] [Inquirer] [The700Level] [Flyer Files] [delcotimes.com] [Flyers Goal Scored By...] [Flyers Faithful] [Daily News]
  • Matt Walker made his season debut last night: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • Another Walker-debut story, but Frank... really? "The truth is that Walker, 30, would be a Top 4 defenseman on most NHL teams but has not only been hindered in Philly by his injuries but the Flyers' depth at defense." [Frequent Flyers] Walker has been a third-pairing guy in STL, CHI, and TB each of the last three years.  It's not the Flyers.
  • Two stories on Matt Carle being quietly consistent? Gee, it's nice when people agree with you. (Though I'm also not sure Carle would be the #1 on half the NHL teams, Frank haha) [Daily News] [delcotimes.com]
  • Alright, Seravalli was very busy. He argues that Zherdev just needs consistency, even throwing in the fact that Z leads all NHL players in goals per 60 minutes. Well done: [Frequent Flyers]
  • Five things to look for this weekend with the Phantoms. Also, the last paragraph is another example of why Tim McManus is awesome: [PostStar.com]
  • Did you grow up on NHL video games? It's amazing what those games taught you, and what this generation is missing: [Behind the Net]
  • When can a goalie cross-check you in the head and not have it be a penalty? The shootout, of course! [Jewels From The Crown]
  • More proof that Jack Johnson was paid $4.4 million for his potential, not his play up to this point: [Hockey Prospectus]
  • Dos and Don'ts for GMs on the hot seat: [Down Goes Brown]
