Roster battles are coming into focus, the full TV schedule is out and TCN isn't on it, and we're looking for new writers. All that and more in today's Fly By:
Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers-related news and notes...
* CSN and the Flyers unveiled their TV schedule last night. NO GAMES ON TCN HOORAY! 41 games will be broadcast locally, with the other seven exclusive to either NBC or NBC Sports Network. Most games will be on 97.5 The Fanatic, but some games will be on WMMR. The Flyers' partnership with WIP is over. [Flyers]
* Meltzer's column from yesterday is really solid all around, but the most interesting parts are with regards to Laviolette's system and the potential need to change thanks to a slower defense. [Hockeybuzz]
* The Titans played the Reading Royals at 11 a.m. in Trenton on Wednesday. Overtime winner! [Flyers Faithful]
* Ian Slater is making friends in Glens Falls. [Post Star]
* This had to be Deadspin's highest-trafficked post on Wednesday, right? How the Stars have hired their own beat reporter, and we should all hope it works out better than it did with Rich Hammond and the Kings. [Deadspin]
* Finally, if you missed it, we're looking for writers. [BSH]
