Monday Morning Fly By: On to the free agency silliness!

Bruce Bennett

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

*Welcome to Philadelphia (in 2-3 years), Samuel Morin. The big, tough defenseman was Homer's pick at #11 in yesterday's draft. A full list of the Flyers' picks, along with analysis and commentary, can be found here.

*ASF with the inside line on what Morin brings to the table. (Flyers)

*Chris Pronger joined the Flyers' front office staff on the stage to make that 11th pick; he apparently sees a lot of potential in this kid. (CSN Philly)

*With their second round pick the Flyers took another defenseman, Robert Hagg from Sweden.

*In the kind of hilariously frustrating move we're all used to, the Flyers took truculence in the third round. (BSH)

*Given those first two picks, this in-depth look at defensive-defenseman taken in the draft is a great read. (That's Offside)

*Eric T. analyzes the usage of prospects playing in the CHL. (BSH)

*The biggest trade of the day saw Lou Lamoriello send the 9th overall pick to Vancouver for goalie Corey Schneider. Unbelievable that the Canucks didn't get more for him. (Nucks Misconduct)

*Dave Bolland was also moved for picks, he's headed to the Leafs. (SB Nation)

*Surprisingly Seth Jones fell to four, where he was taken by the Predators. Jones is eager to show the three teams that passed on him what they missed. (Puck Daddy)

*The Penguins have reportedly agreed to a long-term deal with Kris Letang. (TSN)

*This article seems to argue that signing Giroux to a long-term deal could be a bad thing. (Philly.com)

*Mark Streit's contract has been finalized. (Flyers)

*A preliminary look at USA Hockey's roster for the Sochi games. (Hockey Wilderness)

*The league reiterates tomorrow's deadline for an agreement between the Coyotes and the city of Glendale. (SB Nation)
