Friday Morning Fly By: Shootouts, no one likes you.

New, comments

This Fly By promises to suck less than the Flyers in a shootout. Possibly.

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

*Despite Bryzgalov's stellar play so far this season, he still hasn't nailed down the shootout. It's Bettman's fault, really. Flyers fall to the Panthers 3-2, full recaps at BSH, Philly.com, Flyers, Litter Box Cats, & CSN Philly

*The Islanders traded a conditional pick for Tim Thomas and his bloated salary in order to reach the cap floor. It's hilarious because fuck Tim Thomas. (Stanley Cup of Chowder)

*Kimmo Timonen signed a one-year contract extension! This is great because if Timo left Bruno Gervais would probably see more ice time. (BSH)

*This "The Last Gladiators" movie seems well worth a few hours' time. (SB Nation)

*The flailing Phantoms will attempt to get back on track tonight against the Syracuse Crunch. They're fighting in practice, Terry Murray is telling them to start winning or GTFO...it's going really well up there. (Saratogian)

*Japer's Rink put together a hell of an examination of the Caps' fall from President's Trophy winners to worst team in the league. (Japer's Rink)

*The Coyote's Mike Smith gave himself a ridiculous haircut and wants you to name it. I call it: magnificent. (Puck Daddy)

*The Flyers have a couple of new post-win locker room songs and hearing them might shed some light onto why they aren't winning a lot of games so far this season. They make "Knock Knock" sound like a timeless classic. (Flyers)
