Bruce Bennett

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

*Well that was fun. The newly shuffled first line looked better than it has in weeks, eh? Great way to head into the weekend; RECAP!

*The Flyers signed Chris VandeVelde to a one-year contract yesterday and sent Tye McGinn back to Adirondack. He made his debut last night in place of Jay Rosehill. [BSH] [Flyers]

*The Flyers will auction off baskets of the favorite things of players and front office staff before their December 17 game against the Capitals. A full list of the items can be found here. Some of them are kind of hilarious.

*Danny Briere spoke with the Philly media before last night's game and you guys? He still loves us. [Flyers] [CSN Philly]

*After that crappy road trip the top line was juggled a bit last night (and looked better). [Inquirer]

*The Calgary Flames relieved their GM and Assistant GM of their duties yesterday. [Matchsticks and Gasoline] [NHL.com]

*Ten NHLers who seemed like a lock for Sochi that don't seem like a lock anymore. [Puck Daddy]

*On the inconsistency of NHL goaltenders. [SB Nation]

*The Penguins have started to leak their Stadium Series jersey; looks like it won't be blue this time. [Icethetics]

*Dr. Eric T. on how to bring shot quality into player evaluation. [SBN]

*24/7 starts tomorrow! Let's try and guess who will break out as the Ilya Bryzgalov-style star of the show. [Grantland]
