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

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*Well, the deadline has come and gone, so for better or worse, this team is your team. And you get to watch them play tonight as Jaromir Jagr and the Florida Panthers roll into town for a 7PM start. Go team!

*Before tonight's game, let's look back at the last one, a rare win. We learned some things. Ten of them. [BSH]

*So what did the Flyers do yesterday? Well, the gave an extension and 100% raise to one of their worst forwards. [BSH]

They also gave a two year deal and a nice fat raise to their underperforming backup goaltender who has never stayed healthy for a full season in his entire career. That's the good stuff. [BSH]

*And we bid adieu to Mark Streit, for an overpaid forward and some picks. [BSH]

*Let's meet Valtteri Filppula, the guy for whom we traded Mark Streit for. [BSH]

*Welp, we've lost Michael Raffl for a while. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Okay let's forget about that though and have a hearty laugh at Marcus Hayes, who is bad and should really never write about hockey ever. [BSH]

*Jordan Weal scored his first NHL goal the other night and that's pretty cool. It'd be nice if he stuck around. [Inquirer]

*The Phantoms are in a bit of a slump right now but there's no need to worry. Yet. [The Morning Call]

*And finally, because why not, here are the best deadline day trades made by every team in the league. [ESPN]
