Wednesday Morning Fly By: This break has been nice, eh?

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

Kate Frese

*How’s everyone enjoying this little mini-break from the Flyers? Getting extra sleeping? Watching some shows? Well, we’ve come to the last day of our freedom. Spend it reading about how awesome Sean Couturier is. [BSH]

*Good news! We may get Radko Gudas back tomorrow! []

*Gooder news, Ivan Provorov is NOT having a sophomore slump. Obviously. [Flyers]

*The Flyers are aiming to score more off of the rush going forward. This would be nice. [Courier-Post]

*Mark Recchi, who people like for some reason, will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday. His old pal Rick Tocchet had some words to say about him. []

*The Flyers have used their time off to let some members of the Air Force play hockey with their favorite NHLers, which is pretty cool. []

*Carter Hart continues to absolutely crush in basically every situation, this time against the Russians. [Flyers]

*The Colorado-Nashville-Ottawa trade that happened this weekend was super fun, and not a thing we see very often in this league anymore. DGB brings us a few notable moves from the golden era of the three-way trade. [Sportsnet]

*Speaking of that big trade, who tops the trade bait list now that Matt Duchene has finally been dealt? [TSN]

*In a move that should absolutely not shock you but should also make you feel really freaking annoyed, the NHL will again use the Blackhawks in an outdoor game. Again. [SB Nation]

*And finally, new BSH Radio! There’s a lot of gushing about Ivan Provorov that you’re sure to enjoy. So enjoy it! [BSH]
