Today's links provide a great quote from Bernie Parent, but mostly try to convince you to watch the KHL or EPL this weekend while the NHL and NHLPA argue about trivial matters.

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

  • The NHL and NHLPA have scheduled three days of meetings over the weekend. The only proper reaction is "why did they wait until the weekend?" [SBNation.com]
  • A brief look at a few of the Phantoms' roster battles and more from yesterday: [Bill Meltzer]
  • Bernie Parent will be at a book festival, but the best part is a quote from his book: "Some guy asked me how I felt after the alumni game, and I said, ‘Well, I can usually romance four women after a game, but that day I had to stop at three." [Broad Street Bull]
  • Brad Marsh is going to play an alumni game: [NHL.com]
  • For alternative viewing, there's the KHL, but also a great slate of English Premier League games tomorrow, as Arsenal takes on Chelsea at 7:45 am, while Fulham travels to Manchester City at 10 am and Manchester United faces Tottenham at 12:30. Or, you could watch Barcelona take on Sevilla at 4 pm.
