Wednesday Morning Fly By: Richards Speaks Out

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

  • Not a good day for the Flyers. First, James van Riemsdyk missed practice with a "minor lower-body" injury: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • Then, Ville Leino admits that the Flyers attitude has room for improvement. "It's a bit hard when we don't have to win every game." [euroflyers]
  • And to top it all off, Mike Richards (and a couple others) criticized the coaches for constantly changing the power play: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • But at least Nic Riopel was named ECHL goaltender of the week for the second time this year: [PostStar.com]
  • And Tom Sestito is quickly becoming a must-follow on twitter. Here's why: [The700Level.com]
  • And the Mayor of Glens Falls is expected to announce upgrades to the Civic Center by the end of the week: [PostStar.com]
  • A good take on the Twitter embarrassment some writers suffered yesterday: "Monday was the great re-education of hockey fans and hockey journalists about social media as a news source, thanks to these pranksters who decided to expose the logical failings, bad habits and systemic problems with the NHL trade deadline spectacle." [Puck Daddy]
  • The League of Extraordinary Statisticians look at the disparity between the West and East, wondering if it's still there: [Behind The Net]
  • Some random (and cool) pictures of interesting jerseys: [icethetics]
  • Great video of the official trade call as Dustin Penner became a King: [SBNation.com]
  • How to evaluate a player's contract value: [Behind The Net]
  • Which is great, because now there's a way to laugh at the Sharks signing Antti Niemi to a 4 year/$15.2 million extension: [SBNation.com]
  • Winners and losers at the 2011 trade deadline: [Down Goes Brown]
  • Scottie Upshall scored CBJ's lone goal in his first game as a Blue Jacket. Upshall now has 21 more points on the season than does Dan Carcillo. Not that I checked or anything. And hey, who says goals win hockey games? [Canucks]
  • Attention stalkers: Claude Giroux will be at the Moorestown Mall tonight. Buy the kid an Elevation burger--he deserves one (sorry, Nick Boynton, that was the most exciting part of this article). [Courier-Post]
  • A pretty fantastic look at Marty Reasoner, even though he isn't a Flyer: [Flyers Faithful]
  • Lastly, happy birthday Gabe Desjardins!
