Friday Morning Fly By: Gonna be some awkward locker-room conversations come training camp!

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

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

* Flyers keep punching one another in world championships! They should stop doing this! [BSH]

* Some words on the Flyers’ quest to find their next franchise goalie, as change will come for the team at the position next season: [Sons of Penn]

* Elsewhere, the big story around the NHL yesterday was the Capitals’ collapse. This keeps happening. How unlikely is it for the Capitals to have never once reached the conference finals in the Ovechkin era? [Japers’ Rink]

* And what do the Caps do now? They’ve got a lot of options, all of which are kind of varying degrees of bad: [Sportsnet]

* As for their opponents, the Penguins, there are some holes in their lineup as they prepare to face Ottawa, even if they are the favorites in the series: [SBNation]

* But, lineup-wise, they may have a unique advantage in how they can match up with Erik Karlsson: [TSN]

* In Buffalo, Jason Botterill (of the Penguins’ front office) was named GM of the Sabres yesterday: [Die by the Blade]

* The AHL moved Charlotte into the Phantoms’ division yesterday: [Highland Park Hockey]

* Because nothing could possibly go right for the Colorado Avalanche this season, Tyson Barrie was injured at World Championships ... while wrestling in his hotel. Anyone want to guess whether or not any Flyers were involved here? [Yahoo]

* Oilers fans reflect on their first playoff season in a decade, which came to an end on Wednesday night: [Copper ‘n’ Blue]

* Finally, with the conference finals starting tonight, tell us: who do you want to win the Stanley Cup? [BSH]
