Tuesday Morning Fly By: THINGS ARE HAPPENING!

Good luck, Hartsy - Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

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

*Today is June 24, which means yesterday was a total madhouse. First up, Scott Hartnell was traded to the Blue Jackets in exchange for R.J. Umberger and a pick. [BSH] [Inquirer] [CSN Philly]

*It's important to note that R.J. Umberger is worse than Scott Hartnell and also has a terrible contract. [BSH]

*Turns out the reason that Hartsy accepted a trade is that he was told he was done here. [BSH]

*The internet responded to the trade with predictable hilarity: The Sporting News is confused; Justin Bourne points out that the Flyers "immediately got worse"; and the Habs fans consider trading all of their garbage players to the Flyers for our good ones.

*Hextall spoke with the media about the trade. [Flyers]

*Not everything was weird yesterday, though. Hextall also signed Brayden Schenn to a very favorable bridge deal. [BSH]

*But seriously, what's with the Flyers and June 23? [TSN]

*The BSH crew hosted a new edition of BSH Radio last night; listen here if you missed the broadcast.

*In other news, the NHL Awards are tonight! Get ready for awkward jokes and second-rate celebrity sightings! Which stars will bring home the hardware? [SB Nation]

*Rumors of the Flyers trading up in Friday's draft are heating up. [BSH]

*Claude Giroux is still surprised that the Flyers drafted him. [CSN Philly]

*Ranking the top 100 prospects in this year's draft. [The Hockey News]

*A look at defenseman Julius Honka, who could very well be available for the Flyers at 17. [BSH]

*The Hockey Hall of Fame announced its 2014 class yesterday; Eric Lindros was left out AGAIN. They finally let Pat Burns in, though. At least there's that. [BSH] [SB Nation]

*DGB with your NHL offseason primer. [Grantland]

*Fourteen dates to mark on your calendar in the '14-'15 season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, ranking all 30 NHL teams using Game of Thrones characters. [On The Forecheck]
