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

*Since November 8th, the Flyers have quietly been one of the best teams in the league, points-wise. [Flyers]

*Looking at the trade rumors kicking around lately. [Flyers Faithful]

*On trades and evaluating the intangibles. [Puck Daddy]

*Fourth line players in the NHL have a hard road after they turn 30. [Sportsnet]

*Saturday night's game between the Canucks and Flames opened with a line brawl. And then John Tortorella got into a scrum with the Flames coaching staff. Craziness.
