Monday Morning Fly By: Hockey is actually very bad.

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

Kate Frese

*The Flyers participated in two hockey matches this weekend, though they did not actually play any of the hockey. First up was Saturday's huge embarrassing failure against the Bruins. If you hate yourself, please enjoy this recap of all of the wonderful action.

*Charlie, because he is a goddamned professional, came up with ten things we should learn from that game. [BSH]

*Jakub Voracek was given a boarding major in this game, and it was an absolutely terrible call. Everyone knows it. [ProHockeyTalk]

*AND THEN was Sunday's "game" against the Capitals. Which start off not-terribly and then went all the way to shit in the third period. RECAP!

*SHayne Gostisbehere was scratched Saturday, because lol whatever Dave Hakstol, but here are a few reasons it may have been a good thing. [BSH]

*There was some fun hockey this weekend, though, as the Flyers' alumni played the Penguins' alumni for funsies. Seeing Eric Lindros in orange and black will never get old. [CSN Philly]

*So Sam Morin is definitely into destroying people. That's something. [Sons of Penn]

*Revisiting the Steve Downie twitter rant and the somewhat toxic hockey culture. [NHL Numbers]

*And finally, because the NHL is literally incapable of making the right choice in any situation, the All-Star breakaway challenge is dead. Why even watch at this point? [Puck Daddy]
