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

  • Recap: [BSH] [NHL Hot Stove]
  • Wayne Simmonds was caught on camera using a homophobic slur last night: [SBNation.com] [Puck Daddy] [Philly Sports Daily] [CSNPhilly] [Puck Buddys]
  • While I - and I think I can say we here at BSH - have great respect for Anthony SanFilippo, I'm going to say that this post misses the point. Whether or not the slur is common, or was used against "a crumb", it is still something that should be eliminated from society. This is a good place to point that out: [In The Room]
  • Tom Sestito is likely going to be suspended for this hit: [BSH] [Puck Daddy]
  • Which means Zac Rinaldo is almost certainly going to make the team for at least as long as Sestito and Jody Shelley are suspended: [CSNPhilly] [Daily News]
  • The Winter Classic was announced, which means lots of stories by the NHL. The coaches will have won more games than any other from the U.S. when they meet: [NHL.com
  • The Rangers expect an intense, physical game: [NHL.com]
  • The Flyers are looking forward to hosting: [NHL.com
  • Ice man Dan Craig anticipates a slight challenge, but enjoys that sort of thing: [NHL.com]
  • The Phillies are excited to host, even with being told the weather is their job: [NHL.com]
  • The Phantoms will play the Hershey Bears on January 6th: [NHL.com] [PostStar.com]
  • Several Flyers will be playing in their second Winter Classic, and they plan to enjoy this one more: [NHL.com]
  • Go relive Danny Syvret Offensive Dynamo's goal in the Winter Classic: [Flyers Faithful]
  • And video smack talk from Glen Sather and Ed Snider: [SBNation.com] [Puck Daddy]
  • A wish list for the alumni game: [Flyers Faithful]
  • As training camp opens, the Phantoms have high expectations this year: [PostStar.com]
  • Looking at Jaromir Jagr and his return: [SI.com]
  • Brayden Schenn is among the Calder Trophy candidates: [NHL.com]
  • The Future Flyers Weekly Report this week stars but one man: Derek Mathers: [Flyers Faithful]
  • The Flyers should trade for Frans Nielsen today. That's hyperbole, but Nielsen could be a cheaper Manny Malhotra: [Hockey Prospectus]
  • James Wisniewski was suspended for the rest of the preseason and 8 regular season games. I think Brendan Shannahan is serious about this stuff: [SBNation.com]
  • Look at Todd Bertuzzi's between-the-legs shootout goal. It's nice: [Puck Daddy]
  • Tips to dominate your fantasy hockey draft: [Down Goes Brown]
  • Non-hockey, but still poignant: Looking at John Lackey and the myth perpetuated by the media that some players can't handle the pressure of big cities: [Deadspin]
