Thursday Morning Fly By: Is It Possible to Say "Harvard" Without Sounding Snooty?

New, comments

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

  • A look at Petr Placek and his desire to go to college. Sorry, Harvard is more than a college: [Philadelphia Flyers]
  • While calling it "The Bobby Clarke Curse" makes me twitch, the substance of the Curse makes me cringe: [Flyers Goal Scored By...]
  • Were you looking for a reason to get excited about Sean Couturier? Were you looking for a reason to laugh at the Winnipeg Jets? How about looking for another reason to call the Flyers "lucky" on draft day? Look no further: [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • Where's my birthday wish, jerk?
  • And now, the "Then and Now" we've all been waiting for, and some of us (who, me?) have been opening calling for... Bruno St. Jacques! [Flyers Faithful]
  • Jeff Carter and James Wisniewski were introduced in Columbus yesterday: [Puck Daddy] [NHL.com]
  • Should the Flyers add a mascot? I know the immediate reaction is "NO!" but, if Eagles fans can have one, surely the Flyers can too: [Broad Street Buzz]
  • Travis explains why Chris Osgood is not a Hall of Fame goalie. Yes, this should be obvious, but it's not, so Travis makes it clearer for you: [SBNation.com]
  • Yesterday was also the anniversary of the NHL rejecting the Ilya Kovalchuk contract: [Puck Daddy]
  • Lastly, a thorough breakdown of the Mike Richards and Jeff Carter deals, including how Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds were used last year. ToddtheFox is the one who pointed us to this site, and I must say, I am quite glad he did: [Driving Play]
  • Happy Birthday Travis!
