Tuesday Morning Fly By: Ladies & gentlemen, Paul Holmgren.

Bruce Bennett

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

*Well, the Bruins carried that OT win momentum right into game three and we all got a break from marathon hockey. Full game coverage here.

*Paul Holmgren went out and got us a defenseman. Reactions seem to range from "lol Flyers" to "glad we avoided that mess" to "oh ok, well that's...a contract." I'm starting to think that Homer is under the impression that NTCs are compulsory, though. Someone should tell him they aren't.

*Meltzer muses on the Flyers' possible goalie options should a Bryzgalov amnesty happen. (Hockeybuzz)

*Looking back on Bruno Gervais' 2013 season. (Flyers Faithful)

*Our friends over at Defending Big D speculate on what it might cost for them to land Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier. (DBD)

*A very thorough introduction to the NHL draft. (HEotP)

*The SB Nation hockey family have begun their 2013 Mock Draft, and the Avs fans have started things off in an interesting way by taking Nathan MacKinnon over Seth Jones.

*Sidney Crosby seems to think Zdeno Chara was intentionally going after his broken jaw during a scrum. Seems unlikely. (CBS Boston)

*BSH reader PierceC has put together a very intensive four-part series on defining the performance of NHL lines using advanced stats. It's worth a read. (Parts one, two, three, and four)

*Bernie Parent on the importance of having a laugh. (Philly.com)

*We may not have had the pleasure of an NHL Awards show this year, but that didn't stop the Battle of California from judging the fashion choices of this year's winners. Hilarity ensues. (BoC)
