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

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*So for some reason the Flyers have off until TUESDAY, which is great when the team is warming up. Spend all of this time reminding yourself that, despite what you keep reading in the paper, THERE IS NO GOALIE CONTROVERSY. [BSH]

*Four games in this team is meshing together rather nicely. [Flyers]

*With his second shutout in a row Wednesday night Michal Neuvirth put himself into the Flyers' team record books. [CSN Philly]

*Jason LaBarbera has been sent back to the Phantoms so we'll probably see Steve Mason back on Tuesday, which is great news. [BSH]

*The Flyers have been emphasizing improvement on the penalty kill and it's showing. [Daily News]

*In fact, so far, Dave Hakstol seems to be doing a lot of things right. [Courier-Post]

*Kimmo Timonen wants to help bring a Cup to Philadelphia, because he is the certifiable best. [BSH]

*Let's look closely at Sam Gagner's power play goal from the 'Hawks game and see why it went so deliciously right. [Pattison Ave]

*This feels a bit relevant: why riding the hot goalie isn't always the best approach. [The Score]

*Poor Sergei Bobrovsky is off to a rough start this season. [Puck Daddy]

*So far this season it would appear that empty-net goals are on the rise. [TSN]

*DGB on what developed during the NHL's first week. [Grantland]

*Mike Richards wants back in the NHL. We'll see how that goes. [The Hockey News]

*Have fun feeling old while you read this list of the ten youngest players in the league right now. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, shirts with logos in the armpit are a thing. What a time to be alive. [Puck Daddy]
