Wednesday Morning Fly By: Bill Barber days remaining. THAT'S A WEEK PEOPLE!

Jim McIsaac

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

*Hey that felt like a mid-December game against the Devils. And in no way is that a good thing. Worst part is, Jake got hurt. Game thread, in case you missed anything: voila.

*Tonight we'll get to see another episode of Flight Plan, which you can preview here.

*The Flyers' goaltending tandem isn't worried about the reduction of pad size. (Philly.com)

*Previewing the upcoming season for Flyers' current crop of centers (The Checking Line)

*As preseason draws to a close this week we'll finally find out which players will land the remaining roster spots. (Flyers)

*Looking at which, if any, members of the Adirondack Phantoms will crack the Flyers' lineup this year. (Flyers Faithful)

*Steven Mason and Ray Emery will probably both see a lot of ice time this year, according to coach Laviolette. (Philly.com)

*Jay Rosehill comes to the defense of the Maple Leaf's David Clarkson, who is being suspended for 10 games for leaving the bench. Clarkson plans to appeal the automatic, rule book-mandated suspension.

*Speaking of suspensions, on where a big suspension is justified.

*The league appears to have closed the loophole that allowed two players to remove each others helmets before engaging in a fight. Obviously no one can have any fun around here. (SB Nation)

*The Oilers' Sam Gagner had his jaw broken by the Canucks' Zack Kassian and it is HORRIFYING. Look at your own risk and then renew your respect for hockey players. (Puck Daddy)

*The folks over at Pension Plan Puppets continue to be hilarious, this time with a fairy tale starring Prince Kessel. (PPP)

*We've also got a look into Kessel's suspension hearing. (DGB)

*About that brawl...the league has fined Sabres coach Ron Rolston for, uh...something? (PHT)

*Henrik Lundqvist is incredible. (PD)

*Team Canada's Olympic jerseys have leaked again and people still hate them. (HEotP)

*And finally, an exclusive look into the Matt Read negotiations. (BSH)
