Thursday Morning Fly By: Life is so much less stressful this week, eh?

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

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

*Folks we are so far into the bye week at this point that even the beats have run out of things to write about. Let's enjoy the next few days of not losing hockey games, because the month ahead is going to be a doozy. [The Hockey Writers]

*While the Flyers have been on vacay, they've fallen right out of a Wildcard spot. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of vacay, it would seem the boys are enjoying themselves. [BSH]

*Unlike the Flyers, the Phantoms are a strong third period team. Switch rosters! [The Morning Call]

*There are quite a lot of trade rumors flying about, wouldn't you say? Friedman has some thoughts. Like, thirty of them. [Sportsnet]

*After stupidly taking away the most fun part of the All-Star skills competition, the breakaway challenge, the NHL has added some crazy shot accuracy event in its place. [Puck Daddy]

*It's early but some possible Selke winners are starting to emerge. [The Hockey News]

*There's literally nothing going on right now so let's look at some fun fan-designed NHL jersey concepts. [Icethetics]

*And finally, in case you missed it, the best way to fill your time without the Flyers is to listen to the latest episode of BSH Radio, which is the greatest hockey podcast in the history of the world. [BSH]
