Thursday Morning Fly By: In a mere Craig Berube days, the season shall open.

Bruce Bennett

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

*If you missed it, check out yesterday's BSH Radio. Travis & Kurt chatted about our new division-mates about the Hurricanes. Good stuff.

*Yesterday's Flyers edition of NHL.com's 30-in-30 yielded some pretty good little articles. They looked at Sean Couturier, the Flyers' added veteran presence, Scott Laughton and the rest of the Flyers' top prospects, and the biggest change of the offseason in goal. They're all worth a read.

*Meltzer on Kimmo Timonen's future and Laviolette's expectations. (Hockeybuzz)

*Japers' Rink continue their examination of their new division, this time looking at the top ten right wingers in the Metro next season. (Japers' Rink)

*John Tavares offers his take on why youth has taken over the NHL. (Lighthouse Hockey)

*Word out of Olympic camp is that Team USA is about half set. (SB Nation)

*Justin Bourne puts together what he thinks is the Team USA roster most likely to win Olympic gold in Sochi. (Backhand Shelf)

*You may not recall, but four years ago in Vancouver Olympic hockey was played on a standard NHL-sized ice sheet. In Sochi, the game will go back to the normal international sized rink seen in every other Olympic competition. People are talking about it. (Puck Daddy)

*The Leafs' fans attempt to fix a fundamental flaw in a counting stat the advanced stat community has looked down on for a while. (Pension Plan Puppets)

*Joffrey Lupul interviews Gary Bettman about his favorite music, and it's about as awkward as you'd expect it to be. Bettman has alarmingly good taste in music...(Yahoo Screen)
