Wednesday Morning Fly By: Let the madness commence!

Bruce Bennett

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

*So yesterday, eh? The door is closing on the Ilya Bryzgalov experiment but the more important question is what the heck is Homer going to do now??

*Bryz's buyout is the largest in NHL history in both length and amount of money. You might call it...humongous big. /I'll see myself out. (Philly.com)

*Paul Holmgren addresses the media in the wake of the announcement. (Part one and part two)

*Draft day will probably be...interesting, to say the least. Might as well speculate on the possibilities. (CSN Philly)

*Meltzer with a look back on some Flyers prospects who never quite worked out. (Hockeybuzz)

*Looking at how, in the age of caps and forced parity, the Chicago Blackhawks won twice in four years. (Grantland)

*This year's Stanley Cup Final was pretty fantastic, from top to bottom, and we deserved it. (SB Nation)

*And Bettman got exactly what he deserved from the crowd at TD Bank Garden when he presented the Cup. (SBN)

*The folks at HNIC put together another incredible montage to close out the season. (Backhand Shelf)

*The City of Boston had a terrible year, and despite their ultimate loss the Bruins helped to lift the collective spirit of the city. That's a wonderful thing. (SCoC)

*It would appear that the Leafs fans are still not sold on the Bernier trade, examining when an "upgrade" really isn't. (PPP)

*Now that John Tortorella is officially the new head coach of the Canucks, there is some discussion about what aspects of the Rangers' game he'll bring with him to Vancouver. Tyler Dellow on whether shot blocking is one of the defining traits of Tortorella's Rangers team. (mc79hockey)

*Andrew Ference has made the best video ever posted on Vine. Can't. Stop. Watching. (vine.co)
