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

  • So the Flyers said Ilya Bryzgalov won't talk to the media the day before a game. This led to a lot of responses: [BSH] [SB Nation Philly] [Flyers Goal Scored By...] [Puck Daddy] [Philly Sports Daily] [delcotimes.com] [Broad Street Buzz]
  • But now it's back to him being allowed to talk every day: [Inquirer] [CSNPhilly]
  • What the whole dust up meant in terms of information control, specifically on the status of Rinaldo, Read, and Briere's injuries: [Bill Meltzer]
  • Through it all, the problems ran much deeper than Bryzgalov. Some actual analysis on why the Flyers were so bad in those two games last week: [The Hockey Guys]
  • Thanks to PursuitofLappyness, I was pointed to exactly the article I was asking for since people started blaming "confidence" and "nervousness" for Bryzgalov's game against Montreal. The physical failings that resulted in pucks being in the back of the net: [NHL.com]
  • Remember all those "Scott Hartnell sucks!" people? Yeah, he's having a good run with Giroux and Jagr: [CSNPhilly] [Philly Sports Daily] [Daily News]
  • Maybe it has something to do with Jaromir Jagr having five goals and two assists in his last four games: [CSNPhilly]
  • Picking up on why Bob McKenzie picked Matt Read for Calder: [The Globe and Mail]
  • Future Flyers Weekly Report starring Brendan Ranford: [Flyers Faithful]
  • So Raffi Torres went as Jay-Z for Halloween. This led to a lot of "racist!" remarks. It's not: [Puck Daddy]
  • Holy crip a crapple! Edmonton makes a charge up the power rankings: [SB Nation Philly]
  • When you score a goal, the list of things not to do includes hugging your opponent. It'll get you punched in the face: [Puck Daddy]
  • A good read on calling out plagiarists on the internet and why bloggers have to police themselves to earn respect: [Winging It In Motown]
  • Second contracts for players in the new NHL are going to be interesting, evidenced by Derick Brassard: [Driving Play]
  • Stat nerd admits Kari Lehtonen can't be judged only on stats?!?! This must be a first: [Brodeur is a Fraud]
  • Lastly, you all emailed and twittered in asking every day for weeks and the answer is finally here. What did Danny Syvret go as for Halloween? Picture: [ICole28]
