Tuesday Morning Fly By: What is the Deal With Turco?

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

  • Does anybody know what is going on?  CSNPhilly asks if the Flyers are turning to Turco in their goalie search while...
  • ...the Inquirer says "Flyers make pitch for goalie Marty Turco" only to have the next article in my RSS Feed be the Daily News with a headline reading "Sources: Flyers never made offer to Turco".  You guys work in the same office!
  • Oh, we finally have clarification (and a bit of public shaming) for media outlets who thought Evgeni Nabokov would be an over-35 contract.  He's not: [Puck Daddy]
  • A great look at Tomas Plekanec's contract: [Puck Prospectus]
  • Dispelling the notion that Ilya Kovalchuk is the big free agent prize: [Behind The Net]
  • You just knew the headlines would be bad, but the Blackhawks took the Stanley Cup in the Gay Pride Parade.  Brent Sopel has some nice quotes: [Hockey or Die]
  • Looking at the Rangers sudden problem re-signing Marc Staal: [Puck Daddy]
  • Analyzing the Stanley Cup contenders budgets for the past few years: "When they say the NHL is now a young man's game, that's the truth -- youth serves when it's reached a talent peak prior to the big contract." [From The Rink]
  • Jonathan Cheechoo and Ales Kotalik among those waived yesterday, possibly heading for buyouts: [Hockey or Die]
  • Lastly, it's reported that Ryan Potulny was not given a qualifying offer by the Oilers and has become a free agent.  Danny Syvret AND Potulny?  That'd be a steal. [TSNBobMcKenzie]
