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

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

*Know who had a pretty awesome season? Actual cartoon mouse/NHL goaltender Michal Neuvirth. [BSH]

*So looks like Claude Giroux was hurt pretty bad. This explains some things. [BSH]

*Meltzer takes a look back at the Flyers' special teams performance this season. [Hockeybuzz]

*Does it ever seem to you like maybe the Flyers don't give their AHL kids enough of an opportunity to win a spot on the team? Sometimes I think that. Anyhoo, Taylor Leier could be a good fit for the Flyers if given a chance. [Sons of Penn]

*The Flyers have some good goalie prospects, did you know that? [The Hockey Writers]

*Speaking of prospects, Robert Hagg. How's that guy doing? (This is a great article btw) [Highland Park Hockey]

*Sadly, former Flyers great Rick MacLeish is battling an illness. Hopefully he'll be okay. [Inquirer]

*On why we can stop with the Ovie vs. Crosby nonsense now. [Vice Sports]

*Speaking of stupid Crosby, no one likes him but everyone loves Phil Kessel and he is on fire. [Puck Daddy]

*A look into the mind of a hockey player before he plays a big big game. [Defending Big D]

*The puck-over-the-glass rule is dumb and really needs a rethinking. [The Hockey News]

*If off-season has you looking for some sports fun, maybe check out the Invictus Games. [Daily Mail]

*And finally...Michael Del Zotto, ladies and gentlemen. [BSH]
