Monday Morning Fly By: Onward to the draft.

Bruce Bennett

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

*After Saturday we can finally stick a fork in this season (if you hadn't already). There's something soothing about that. Relive the excitement. Tonight, the Habs! The Flyers preview the game.

*Some good news from the Adirondacks: Scott Laughton scores his first professional goal! (Flyers.com)

*The Phantoms also won a marathon shootout against the B-Sens Sunday afternoon. Fifteen rounds! That's no joke.

*Congrats to Yale, this year's NCAA champs. (SB Nation)

*Meltzer on Saturday's snoozefest and Briere's future with the team. (Hockeybuzz)

*Since goalies are huge, should the net be bigger? (CSN Philly)

*Poor Wellwood could miss up to a year as a result of his freak injury. Kid can't catch a break. (CSN Philly)

*The Briere buyout seems like a forgone conclusion; Bryz, not so much. (Philly.com)

*NHL Numbers runs a mock draft that has the Flyers picking 7th and taking a forward. (NHL Numbers)

*Mortal enemies Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr may join forces against the state of Tennessee in a lawsuit over their so-called "jock tax". (On the Forecheck)

*And finally, Patrick Kane kicks a guy in his uh...bits. While wearing a skate. That's gotta hurt. (Puck Daddy)
