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

*The Flyers blew six power play opportunities last night and that's terrible, but make no mistake: they were robbed by piss-poor officiating. Recap. Scoring chances. Blah.

*Speculating about Kimmo Timonen's future with the Flyers. [CSN Philly] [Inquirer]

*This is weird. Just go with it. [BSH]

*News out of the GMs meeting in Florida is that they all hate the shootout, so they're going to keep it. Huh? [Backhand Shelf]

*Another thing the GMs hate? The idea of a 3-on-3 overtime period. [CBC]

*A look at what has to change to prevent players from taking pucks to the head. [BS]

*Evgeni Malkin admitted that the Russian Olympic team had little in the way of chemistry. [Puck Daddy]

*Eight NHL players who "pulled a Luongo" and ended up back with the team they started with. [Grantland]

*Rich Peverley wanted to get back out on the ice after regaining consciousness Monday night. Does this make hockey players tougher than others? [National Post]
