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

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers were in Dallas Friday and they did...well, about as well as you'd expect them to do against a team as good as the Stars. RECAP!

*Kurt brings us ten things we learned from the loss, which might've seemed close but really wasn't close at all. [BSH]

*Sean Couturier had a particularly bad night, by the numbers. [Sons of Penn]

*Also over the weekend (and this headline makes me laugh), Andrew MacDonald was sent back to Lehigh Valley. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And once he rejoined the Phantoms, he promptly scored two goals and initiated a rainstorm of fluffy adorable teddy bears. Bless. [Sons of Penn]

*The beats still seem desperate for a goalie controversy, but at least they're acknowledging that Steve Mason is the starting goaltender in this town. [Inquirer]

*Jakub Voracek is still playing most of his time in the bottom six; there are bad AND good things about this. [Pattison Ave]

*There will be some changes coming to player safety in the NHL. [TSN]

*Speaking of, Patrick Burke doesn't really care for the criticism his department receives. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Hockey players get a lot of respect for the tough guy "code" by which they play, but NHL refs play by the same code. And pay a price for it. [The Guardian]

*And finally, ahead of tomorrow's game against the 'Canes, hockey players are funny. [TSN]
