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

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers kicked off the new year with a big stinky turd of a game in Los Angeles. Blissfully, the West Coast trip is over, so we can go back to watching crap hockey at a normal time. RECAP!

*Charlie brings us ten things to learn from the loss to the Kings. [BSH]

*A few of the players spoke post-game about the loss. [Flyers]

*Did you know R.J. Umberger hasn't scored in 40 games? That's a lot of games, folks. [Inquirer]

*After practice in LA, Ed Snider welcomed the team into his California home. [Flyers]

*How'd you like this year's Winter Classic? The Habs won handily so the game wasn't one for the books but it's still a fun spectacle if you ask me. [Puck Daddy]

*So far it's looking like Toronto is the front-runner to host next year's Winter Classic, but there are some Flyers-Penguins rumors in the mix as well. [ESPN]

*Since it's fun, a look at the best and worst things from this year's Classic. [Puck Daddy]

*Late this weekend it was revealed that Jonathan Drouin wants out of Tampa Bay; let the trade rumors begin! [Raw Charge]

*Also over the weekend John Scott was officially voted into the All-Star game. In a troll-y fashion. [Down Goes Brown]

*For his part, Scott promises to do his best. [The Score]

*In what was surely a let down for an entire nation, Canada failed to make the World Junior semis for the first time since 1998 after a really exciting loss to Finland Saturday afternoon. [Puck Daddy]

*Team USA DID make the final four, however, which is awesome. Here's a nice little preview of the semis. [NHL Numbers]

*And finally, we'll also see Ivan Provorov in the World Junior semis. He's....ridiculous. [BSH]
