Wednesday Morning Fly By: Pittsburgh Wants To Host The Draft (And So Do We)

New, comments

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

  • Sorry for the lack of stories on the site lately (namely days like yesterday and on weekends). We're spending a lot of our energy working on a pretty exciting side project right now. /tease
  • The Phantoms re-signed Denis Hamel to a contract, which is great news for the team and even better news for the young players that get to play alongside him for a full season. [Post Star]
  • The Penguins are in the running to host the NHL Draft next season. [Tribune-Review
  • If you remember, the Flyers announced in 2010 that they were interested in hosting the Draft and the All-Star Game in either 2012 or 2013. Presumably,  that interest is still there. Our story from February 2010: [BSH]
  • Mike Richards denied that the whole "Dry Island" thing was an issue with Peter Laviolette. [TSN]
  • And more on this damn story, one that really couldn't go away any faster. [Kukla's]
  • Trying to put together the roster of the Flyers "All-Underrated" Team. [Meltzer]
  • This is what they in the business call a fantastic read from Bob at Flyers Faithful, the second in a five-part look at the Flyers front office and their philosophy. [FF]
  • Puck Daddy ranks the top 25 right wingers next season. Jaromir Jagr is No. 25, Claude Giroux is No. 15 and Danny Briere is No. 9. This is what they in the business call a "Late July Let's Start An Argument Story." [FF]
  • Nikolai Khabibulin dropped the appeal in his DUI case, and he will be an inmate for 15 days in the Maricopa County, Ariz. Jail (yeah, that's where they make you wear pink and might even make you sleep outside), and he'll spend another 15 days under house arrest. No word on if he'll get an airbrush job done on his ankle bracelet. /bad goalie jokes [CBC]
  • A Buffalo perspective on their signing of Ville Leino. [Die By The Blade]
  • Justin Bourne tried to avoid doing the dirty work, or something.  [Puck Daddy]
  • Finally, BSH roller hockey pickup? BSH roller hockey pickup. [BSH]
