Wednesday Morning Fly By: Bring us all the children!

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

Kate Frese

*The Flyers and the Devils played a hockeZzzzzzZzzzz ooops sorry. RECAP!

*Big news yesterday? That the Flyers decided to have some fun with three games left and play a few kids. Sam Morin made  his debut! [BSH]

*And newest Flyer Mike Vecchione also got the nod! Imagine how much fun this season might have been with 100% less Chris VandeVelde. [BSH]

*So pretty much the only thing anyone is talking about in hockey right now (besides the Leafs rookies), is the NHL's Olympics announcement. Here's a full rundown of what is happening and why. [CBC]

*It's hard to argue against the idea that hockey at the Olympics is going to be worse without NHLers. [TSN]

*Alexander Ovechkin thinks the league is bluffing, but either way he's planning on throwing his middle fingers up and heading to Korea anyway. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Jake Voracek wants to go, but isn't sure he has the Ovechkin-level pull needed to make it happen. [Courier-Post]

*Most of the focus during this Olympics drama has been on Gary Bettman, for good reason, but maybe we ought to be looking harder at the IOC. [Puck Daddy]

*The first round of the playoffs has the potential to be lots of fun. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, in case you missed it, this week's BSH Radio is a fun reflection on the end of the season. [BSH]
