Monday Morning Fly By: Boosh goes Swiss.

Bruce Bennett

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

*Brian Boucher has signed a contract to play in the Swiss National League. Come back for your front office gig someday, Boosh! (CSN Philly)

*Defensive prospect Fredric Larsson is excited to bring his game to the North American market. (Flyers)

*Meltzer on low-ceiling drafting and the Michael Raffl contract and Simon Gagne's future with the team.

*The great Eric T. on identifying undervalued talent. (BSH)

*Ray Emery has grown since his last stint with the Flyers. Emotionally, that is. Pretty sure he's the same size. (Philly.com)

*The AHL has announced its own realignment plan for the upcoming season. (TheAHL.com)

*So far this summer, the Flyers seem to be the most improved team among their division rivals. (CSN Philly)

*On a future (possible) HHOF campaign for Ilya Kovalchuk. (NHL Numbers)

*It would appear that a goalie only needs one great season in order to get a giant contract. This will be a problem if it continues. (Puck Daddy)

*The NHL still hasn't come to an agreement on the Sochi Games, which are shaping up to be the most expensive Olympic Games in history. (The Economist)

*The NHL has made a lot of changes to the game over the past several years and not all of them are working. The Habs fans take a look at the problems with NHL hockey and propose ways to fix them. (HEotP)

*Roberto Luongo has been playing some poker this offseason. Not well, apparently. (Puck Daddy)

*And finally, two kids who have never been less excited in their lives meeting a few Nashville Predators, including Seth Jones. (Deadspin)
