Friday Morning Fly By: Never been happier to take a long break from this team.

Jim McIsaac

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

*Recap.

*Edmonton Oilers' Taylor Hall scored more goals in eight seconds last night than the Flyers did in sixty minutes. So that's cool. (ProHockeyTalk)

*The Flyers have officially hit bottom as far as power rankings go. (Philly.com)

*ASF lets us in on what we didn't see in episode 5 of Flight Plan and ways in which the Flyers current situation is a case of repeated history.

*Should the Flyers trade for Thomas Vanek? (Philly.com)

*Even Tye McGinn disappeared last night. But he's still awesome in every way and should never pay in the AHL again.

*Thankfully, someone has figured out why the Flyers have been playing so poorly. Thank the gods. (Puck Daddy)

*The Flyers can't rely on their captain alone to turn the team around. (SB Nation)

*Ilya Bryzgalov is no longer an ECHLer. Now he will sit in wait in New Jersey, which just sounds really depressing. (ESPN)

*A look at possession numbers through NHL history. (SB Nation)

*The Maple Leafs dressing room is divided. The culprit? Awful pop music. (ProHockeyTalk)

*Teemu Selanne is awesome. (PHT)

*The biggest surprises and disappointments of the first part of the NHL season. (Backhand Shelf)

*Kerry Fraser offers some insight into the "in-person" discipline hearings that come from really, really bad hits. (TSN)
