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

  • Cap again (Recaps): [BSH] [CSNPhilly] [delcotimes] [Daily News] [Inquirer] [Philly Sports Daily] [Bill Meltzer] [Flyers Faithful] [The Checking Line]
  • Mark Howe was officially inducted into the Hall of Fame yesterday: [CSNPhilly] [Flyers Faithful] [Daily News] [Inquirer]
  • Maxime Talbot has been better than expected this year. Maybe his 31.6 shooting percentage is tangentially related, somehow: [NHL Hot Stove]
  • Zac Rinaldo gets called for a lot of penalties. Not surprisingly, some of these are due to his (well deserved) reputation. Not sure how you remove the bad reputation by simply perfecting your game, but why not try? [Orange and Black Pack]
  • Peter Laviolette isn't happy with the number of penalties the Flyers are taking: [delcotimes]
  • Future Flyers Weekly Report starring Marcel Noebels: [Flyers Faithful]
  • A good look back at hockey's dark history with sex abuse in light of the Penn State scandal: [Daily News]
  • The Ducks claimed Niklas Hagman on re-entry waivers. This is a great move: [Puck Daddy]
  • Milan Lucic avoided a suspension: [SBNation.com] [Puck Daddy] [NHL.com]
  • Great response by Cam Charron, explaining how the NHL is inciting violence and injury by refusing to act (my words, in case that's unclear): [Cam Charron]
  • And wouldn't ya know, Erik Cole ran into Jhonas Enroth - who was standing in the crease - last night: [Puck Daddy]
  • How many points will the Wild finish the season with? [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • Great look at score effects as well as an introduction to GVT later down the post: [Backhand Shelf]
  • What happens when you win two faceoffs on the PK, and is Todd McLellan right? [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • The tragic story of a teenager who died after being hit in the back of the net with a puck: [Vancouver Sun]
  • This was actually the most awesomest thing that happened with a goalie and an opposing forward in Boston recently. Cracks [Ben] up every time. [YouTube]
  • Speaking of Lys Assia, she's entered her 87-year-old self in the Swiss selection process for Eurovision 2012, Die grosse Entscheidungs Show. I hope that she doesn't think that just because she's an octogenarian she can get away with having absolutely no choreography. Switzerland makes their decision December 10. This is her song. [YouTube]
  • This overheard at the Hockey Hall of Fame Induction: [Down Goes Brown]
