Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers-related news and notes...
*The Flyers continue their four game home stand with the Florida Panthers tonight at 7PM. Check back later for the BSH preview & with the fine people over at Litter Box Cats for the opposing perspective. In the meantime, preview the game at Flyers.com. It should be a good one.

* In case you hadn't noticed, James van Riemsdyk is trolling the Flyers. Hard. (The 700 Level)

* Bill Meltzer does an excellent job explaining why armchair GMing is way easier than the real thing, especially when you're shopping for a defenseman. (Hockeybuzz)

* The Leafs' special teams. Preeeeeetty bad. (NHL Numbers)
