Bruce Bennett

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

*Today the Flyers debut their awesome behind-the-scenes web series called "Flight Plan". (BSH)

*On why NHL teams extend lucrative contracts to players in a "rotten core". (Puck Daddy)

*Big news yesterday was the finalization of the sale of the Coyotes. While this keeps them in Glendale for the near future, this article mentions that the contract "has a five-year out clause it can exercise if its losses should equal or exceed $50 million over that span."

*Another one of the New Jersey Devils has decided to join the KHL. (SB Nation)

*The league's new divisions will take some getting used to, but the good thing about them is a chance for each to forge a new identity and new rivalries. (Sports Illustrated)

*If you liked our post from Friday about the Flyers' defensemen, you'll like this post about Mike Green. Even if they used something classier than MS Paint for their nifty diagrams. (Japers' Rink)

*Chris Chelios will be heading to Sochi as a hockey analyst for Fox. (USA Today)

*A look at the Western Conference defensive pairings and how they compare to team production. One can assume that the Eastern Conference will follow. (NHL Numbers)
