New, comments

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

  • Recaps of the loss to the Thrashers from the AP, CP,, Inquirer, Daily News, CSN, the Bucks Co. Courier Times, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
  • And now for your ridiculously untimely stories about players who are playing well despite a terrible loss that the whole team should be blamed for, likely all written before the outcome of last night's game was even determined. We've got one on Oskars Bartulis from Carchidi... [Inq]
  • ... one on Dan Carcillo from Panaccio... [CSN]
  • ... and one on Darroll Powe from Wayne Fish. [Bucks. Co Times]
  • Why Kovalchuk won't be a Flyer, something we discussed here weeks ago. [DN]
  • Atlanta GM Don Waddell is impressed with the win last night and is still holding out hope that Kovalchuk will stay in town. [ESPN]
  • Meanwhile, it appears the Bruins are dropping out of the sweepstakes. [The Fourth Period]
  • And now for a much more intriguing piece from one of them blogger types: DMG on why Kovy's situation in Atlanta isn't proof that the current CBA is a sham. [Japers']
  • Jean-Sebastian Giguere is frustrated as a backup in Anaheim. [TFP]
  • IOC President thinks that the Olympics are good for the NHL. The NHL doesn't think the Olympics are good for the NHL. [SB Nation]
  • There's no all-star game this season, but if there was, Mike Richards and Chris Pronger would make the cut. [Puck Prospectus]
  • Vancouver is currently on a ridiculous road trip (thanks, Olympics) but um, this map is off in more than a few places. I counted six mistakes, how many did you find? [Sportsnet]
  • Flyers prospect goaltender Jacob De Serres has a new mask. [Luber's Lounge]
  • Petr Sykora, set to become a free agent. [Hockey Or Die]
  • Patrick Maroon returned to action on Wednesday night and lit the world on fire. [Post-Star]
  • Derek Zona tests out how an Internet trade rumor starts. Highly entertaining. [The Copper & Blue]
  • CSN's Sarah Baicker: Mark Fistric is insane. He was trying to work on getting with me DURING their morning skate when they were in Philly. [@sbaicker]
  • Finally, watch Claude Giroux's goal from last night. Again, again and again.
