Wednesday Morning Fly By: It's finally a little Foggy in the HHOF!

John E. Sokolowski-US PRESSWIRE

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

*Big news yesterday was the induction of the great Fred Shero into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Finally! Bad news is they snubbed Lindros again. Starting to think circa 1998 Bob Clarke is on the induction committee. Read up on the other inductees here.

*Inductee Chris Chelios reminded everyone that he hates Gary Bettman when he got the Hall of Fame call. (Puck Daddy)

*Erik Gustafsson was resigned yesterday for a single year. Here's hoping his stellar performance at Worlds carries over. (BSH)

*The Flyers held a press conference with their newly signed players yesterday, after which Ed Snider declared that the team has gotten better. (Flyers)

*The Daily News profiles Sam Morin. (Philly.com)

*The free agent signings continue, with the Islanders locking up Cal Clutterbuck for the next four years. (LH)

*Former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque doesn't think the addition of George Parros and his mustache will make the Canadiens any tougher to play against. (TSN)

*On maximizing the benefits of adding a player to LTIR. (The Hockey Guys)

*Sometimes, hockey fights are neither good nor bad. They just are. (Backhand Shelf)

*One of the more head scratch-inducing contracts we've seen handed out so far this offseason is the one given to David Clarkson by the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Globe and Mail breaks down the major problems with it.

*It's also interesting to look at the odd structure of Clarkson's contract. (mc79hockey)

*And finally, for the ladies, Joffrey Lupul is the NHL's representative in ESPN's Body Issue. (Puck Daddy)

**Late Addition! The Flyers are Trial on the Isle-ing today! Follow along here.
