Thursday Morning Fly By: Off-day snoozer edition!

Jeff Zelevansky

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

*ASF on Steve Mason, and whether we've seen enough from him to allow ourselves to get excited. (Flyers)

*Meltzer on Tuesday's ugly but much-needed win against the Panthers. (Hockeybuzz)

*Craig Berube stressed the importance of a strong defense and kinda skirts that whole "accountability" thing when pressed on Jay Rosehill's utterly crappy behavior.

*Checking in on the prospects, seeing how they're doing. (BSH)

*Apparently, Claude Giroux has a confidence problem. We should all send him encouraging tweets or something. (CSN Philly)

*Florida Panther Erik Gudbranson will receive no additional discipline for his boarding of Scott Hartnell...(ProHockeyTalk)

*...and this is probably because Hartnell wasn't seriously injured and the NHL insists on punishing based on result rather than action. (CSN Philly)

*On why the Flyers organization doesn't care about what the rest of the hockey world thinks of their coaching change. (Hockeybuzz)

*BSHer Dangler9 is back, breaking down Tuesday's win through the magic of screen shots. (BSH)

*Did you guys know the Flyers have a new locker room? (Flyers)

*The entire hockey world is currently infected with a wicked case of Hertlmania. Check out the hilarious live-tweeting of Tomas Hertl's 4-goal game against the Rangers from Battle of California, as well as his absolutely filthy, greasy, epic, insert-hyperbolic-random-adjective-here 4th goal.

*Sergei Fedorov, bane of every circa-1997 Flyers fan's existence, will play in a KHL game this Friday. (SB Nation)

*A fun discussion about which players are the best to ever play the game. (The Copper & Blue)

*A ranking of the ten best players who played their careers with a single team. (Grantland)

*Game day rituals are a little different when "game day" is actually "game middle-of-the-night". (Ze German Hockey Guys)

*And finally, an exclusive look at Colton Orr's diary. (Backhand Shelf)
