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

NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

* So the Flyers keep on scoring goals but they don’t keep on winning games. How does this happen? The answer may shock you! [BSH]

* (Or it may not! The goaltending. The answer’s “the goaltending”.) [Sons of Penn]

* Some more goalie talk, because it’s all the rage right now! Also, Matt Read skated on the top line at practice yesterday: [CSN Philly]

* Also yesterday, Scott Laughton skated after spending some time last week with the Phantoms on a rehab stint. A brief interview with him: [Highland Park Hockey]

* A wrap of last weekend around the NHL: [VICE]

* Bob McKenzie goes in-depth on the NHL rulebook and why Nazem Kadri didn’t get suspended for his hit this past weekend on Daniel Sedin: [TSN]

* In a down Pacific division, can the Oilers actually make the playoffs this year? [SBNation]

* Jacob Trouba ended his holdout (though apparently he’s still looking to be traded) with ... a two-year, $6 million deal. That sucks for him, but also goes to show the challenges that young players looking for second contracts can face: [Sporting News]

* And on the other side of the Hudson, John Tavares is on the verge of real, definitely real, 100 percent real history: [Lighthouse Hockey]

* The Canucks are really bad! But they’re probably not this bad. But it also might not matter soon enough: [The Hockey News]

* The Leafs, who the Flyers play later this week, have way too many good young forwards already. Here’s more on one of them! [SBNation]

* Finally, in honor of the election today, here the are five NHL hockey players who would apparently be the best presidents: [Puck Daddy]
