Tuesday Morning Fly By: The post at the WFC is evil; must be destroyed.

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

*The Flyers didn't make it to six games in a row, dropping last night's Kings game 3-2. Not even mad. Well, maybe a little mad at the post that was attracting Flyers pucks like a magnet. Stupid post. Recap!

*A look at who is most responsible for the Flyers' turnaround, Claude Giroux or Craig Berube. [Daily News]

*A deeper look at Michael Raffl's rookie season in light of his new contract. [BSH]

*The latest round of ESPN NHL power rankings has the Flyers way, way up. [ESPN]

*In case you missed it, Paul Stewart wrote an excellent piece on James Neal and what is wrong with the NHL discipline system. [Hockeybuzz]

*If the playoffs started today, the Flyers would be looking at Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers. Could be worse. [CBC]

*The playoff picture league-wide is starting to come into focus. [Grantland]

*Another look at the NCAA hockey bracket ahead of next month's Frozen Four here in Philly. [BSH]

*NHL fans pay a wide range of prices to see their team live. Leafs fans are getting ripped off. [Nucks Misconduct]

*Thirty Thoughts, woefully bereft of Flyers thoughts this week. [CBC]

*The Penguins bottom six could be a problem for them in the playoffs. That's a shame. [Sporting News]

*Explaining the new, overly complicated NHL playoff format. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Finally, go cast your vote for Shayne Gostisbehere to win the Hobey Baker. It is your duty.
