Wednesday Morning Fly By: Midsummer, what a bore.

Paul Bereswill

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

*BSH Radio returned to the interwebs last night; if you missed it you can catch the podcast here.

*ASF on our Hexellent (HA) new Assistant GM. (Flyers)

*Meltzer also weighs in on the return of Hextall, as well as a link to Ian Laperriere's Iron Man charity fundraising effort. (Hockeybuzz)

*So about Hexy...is he out for Homer's job? Probably. But there's nothing wrong with that. (BSH)

*Scott Laughton is going to have to work really hard and get really lucky if he's going to make the Flyers this season. (CSN Philly)

*It would appear that some pretty heavy expectations are being placed upon Seth Jones. (SB Nation)

*Rumor has it that the NHL's participation in the Sochi games has been agreed upon. No confirmation yet, though. (The Score)

*Forward Blake Geoffrion has retired from the NHL at only 25 years old due to injury. John Buccigross sheds some much deserved light onto his story. (ESPN)

*There is some discussion in the advanced stat world about the nomenclature used to describe the analytical tools they've developed. Some think names like Corsi and Fenwick make things too difficult for the casual fan, others argue that the names are essentially irrelevant.

*Speaking of advanced stats, if you'd still like to learn more about them the Habs fans are putting on a summer clinic. Part one, on Corsi, here.

*This is pretty cool: a man fulfills his lifelong dream of owning an NHL team by chipping in for a piece of the Phoenix Coyotes. (Times Colonist)

*Finally, Jaromir Jagr is kind of a nutty guy. (Puck Daddy)
