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

  • Recaps of last night's coin flip: [BSH] [CSNPhilly] [Flyers Faithful] [Inquirer] [Philly Sports Daily] [Flyer Files]
  • The Flyers say effort is more important than results. I imagine this holds true today as well: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • Just going to copy the tease for this one, as it was said less than 24 hours ago: "Even though they fell in a shootout, the Flyers remain confident in their play, moving forward with positive energy." [CSNPhilly]
  • Which Flyers goalie has been better in 2011? Obviously, this doesn't include last night: [SB Nation Philly]
  • Matt Read will join the Phantoms this weekend, and there are some quotes from his college coach in here: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • A story from his local paper: [Bemidji Pioneer]
  • Shane Harper was name Sports Man of the Year. Don't know who Harper is? Undrafted free agent signed last year, has 3 points in 20 AHL games, currently in the ECHL. Yup, that guy: [HeraldNet.com]
  • Leighton talked about his exile in New York, with video of his jeri curl: [MyFoxPhilly]
  • Ugh, this gets linked as evidence of more trash coming from Philly.com columnists. Phil Sheridan, welcome to the hockey bandwagon: "It may still be true that having a true superstar or two is the best way to win a Cup - the two teams in the Finals last year suggested otherwise - but it is only true if those players are playing at an elite level. Take them away, or diminish them, and your team's identity disappears. The Flyers approach of depth and breadth of talent suddenly looks pretty good." [Inquirer]
  • Week 23 Power Rankings, where Phoenix makes a jump: [SB Nation Philly]
  • The Senators gave a sneak peak of their new Heritage jersey: [icethetics]
  • Hey, the Ducks are lucky. But here's a peak at quantifying how lucky they have been: [Hockey Prospectus]
  • Charts! Graphs! Drawings! Domination! [Behind The Net]
  • On my list of people to talk to this weekend: Stefan Legein. "Ninja turtles on t.v I don't know what more to ask for" [stefanlegein]
