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

  • Thank God that trip is over. Those late games are fun, but not when a) the Flyers lose and b) they're on Tuesday night. Yes, the Flyers lost last night. [BSH]
  • A very good story regarding Matt Carle's future. Not that we needed to point this out, but I think this story makes it official: BSH commenters > Philly.com commenters. Hoooooly crap. [Frequent Flyers]
  • Matt Read is trying to beat the rookie wall: [Daily News]
  • What's going on with Eric Wellwood and waivers? [The Hockey Guys]
  • Take a wild guess at what CBJ turned down for Rick Nash... [Puck Daddy]
  • "Organizational success at developing goaltenders." Ugh. [The Copper & Blue] And a similar story here, too. [The Copper & Blue]
  • Did Dale Tallon improve the Florida Panthers? [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • Capitals GM George McPhee is on Facebook. This was his wall on Trade Deadline day. (Not really). [Russian Machine Never Breaks]
  • A 6-year-old beat cancer last year. He scored a hat trick on Saturday morning in his hockey game. On the way home, he and his father died in a car accident. Terribly sad. [London Free Press]
  • Flyers Faithful is holding a Pub Quiz at Fado (1500 Locust) next Monday night. All proceeds benefit the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation. [Facebook]
  • You should subscribe to the SB Nation YouTube Channel. Like, yesterday. [YouTube]
