Monday Morning Fly By: Having fun yet?

New, comments

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

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*You know what is fun? The Flyers moved up from the 13th overall pick in the draft to the #2 overall pick. What's extra fun is it's going to be way, way better than the last time they picked at #2. [CSN Philly]

*So speaking of... Craig Button is one of those hockey dudes who really seems to have a great handle on what is going on in the league, and after the lottery he switched his draft board from having Nolan at #1 to having Nico at #1. So he might know something. [TSN]

*So turns out Sam Morin was pretty well injured as the Phantoms made a playoff run; he had to have surgery on BOTH wrists. [Highland Park Hockey]

*Some professional sports writers have evaluated Dave Hakstol's second season but I'm here to tell you that it was, on the whole, bad and not good. [CSN Philly]

*Claude Giroux continues to crush at Worlds. [Sons of Penn]

*Speaking of our captain, seems like he and Scott Hartnell are still bros. [TSN]

*Bobby Ryan beat the Pens in overtime Saturday night, bet you guys liked that. Did you know that Bobby Ryan hails from nearby Cherry Hill, NJ? [Silver Seven Sens]

*So yeah you hate the Pens but you probably still love Phil, right? [The Players' Tribune]

*Charles Barkley loves Ron Hextall, like most people with sense. [BSH]

*Summer is boring so let's have fun with the 5 worst trades the Flyers ever made. [Philly Is Flyer]

*And finally, if you haven't noticed, your BSH Radio pals have started doing some offseason Q&A sessions over on the ol'Facebook. Here's the latest one, with Bill, if you missed it! [BSH]
