Monday Morning Fly By: Not many thanks were given for the Flyers' play last weekend

New, comments

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

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

* Clearly, the Flyers' play this weekend was meant as a protest in response to all of the holiday commercials out there. Right? God, I hope that's it. That's probably not it. Ugh. Here are your recaps for Friday's 3-0 loss and Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

* And HOLY CRAP ANDREW MACDONALD ACTUALLY GOT HEALTHY SCRATCHED for Saturday's game. As did Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. [Philly.com]

* Let's get some thoughts on what's going wrong! Vincent Lecavalier is upset because he got fewer than six minutes of ice time on Saturday: [CSN Philly]

* Meltzer reminds us that the forwards are as much to blame as, if not more than, the defense: [Hockeybuzz]

* And the Inquirer kindly informs us that that people are gonna be in trouuuuuuuuble if the wins don't start coming soon: [Philly.com]

* But until people are in trouble/gone/traded/whatever, here are some suggestions to make the most of what we've got: [Lets Go Flyers]

* Now let's talk about something nicer, shall we? Jakub Voracek is a legit star forward in this league and other people are finally starting to notice: [SBN]

* Something else nicer! The Phantoms won on Saturday. [BSH]

* Something else else nicer! The Devils are playing poorly enough that it's time to discuss whether or not they should fire their coach: [Puck Daddy]

* Excellent tribute to the late Pat Quinn by the Maple Leafs on Saturday. [SBN]

* Martin Brodeur practiced in St. Louis this past week. Their GM said a lot of nice things about him. This is not a drill. [AP/ESPN]

* But maybe it should just be a drill? Since Brodeur is, like, not good anymore? [St. Louis Game Time]

* The lights went out in Detroit yesterday. And that's not a bad joke or anything, that's literally exactly what happened at Joe Louis Arena: [SBN]

* Finally, Tom Tango thinks he has a better means of looking at Corsi than the one that we currently do: [Tangotiger]
