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

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

*The All-Star break is finally over for us Flyers fans as the boys will be back on regular old NHL game ice tonight against the Hurricanes. 7PM puck drop, which is always a treat. GO FLYERS!

*This week continues to be all about Wayne Simmonds as he was chosen as the league's First Star for the week. Well deserved. [BSH]

*In case you didn't already realize that Simmer being named MVP of the All-Star game was a huge awesome big deal, he's the first Flyer to receive the honor since Reggie Leach in 1980. [Inquirer]

*Another fun story to come out of All-Star weekend is that of the Kings ice crew member who was turned into an anthem singer at the last second. []

*Okay, let's check in on how the kids are doing. Specifically, the prospects. [CSN Philly]

*German Rubtsov in particular is having quite the week. [Sons of Penn]

*DGB on which Western Conference GMs are under the most pressure as we slide into the back end of the season. [Sportsnet]

*Seems like NHL hockey players want to go to the Olympics. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, NHLers as South Park characters. Should've given the Canadian ones the split open heads imo. [Puck Daddy]
