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

  • The Flyers lost an 11 round shootout last night. Recaps from us, the AP, The 700 Level, the Daily News and FGSB.
  • Tim Panaccio didn't make the trip so CSN just used the AP story, but they do have some highlights over there. [CSN Philly]
  • Colby Armstrong on his shootout slapper from eight-feet away: "It had to be done. I think the refs had to get to a game in Montreal." [Maple Leafs]
  • I think that, as long as Jeff Carter is a Flyer, every time we play the Leafs, these stories will be written. Carter for Kaberle, blah blah. But wait, it was Carter AND a first for Kaberle? Then again, check the name of the paper. [Toronto Sun]
  • Two stories on Scott Hartnell being happy and taking the preseason seriously. [] [Inquirer]
  • If you're in to hockey podcasts, The Globe's Hockey Roundtable is a must-listen. [The Globe and Mail]
  • An excellent look at the suddenly rusty relationship between bloggers and the NHL, including quotes from a few SB Nation bloggers. [Poynter]
  • Do NHL players owe us, the fans, anything? [From The Rink]
  • Bob Probert's family has donated his brain to science. [NHL FanHouse]
  • HBO will cover the Winter Classic with a special Hard Knocks-type documentary that will follow both the Pens and the Caps. A few predictions on what this doc will bring us. [SB Nation]
  • The Devils have Kovalchuk, sure, but do they have enough scoring on the blueline now that Paul Martin is out of the picture? Oh, and Devils fans hate us more than the Rangers now, apparently. I guess we've done our jobs. [ILWT]
