Monday Morning Fly By: How's that long weekend, Canadians?

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

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

*The Canadians are off today, those jerks, and their hockey team kicked off May Long Weekend by eliminating those dastardly Russians. Guess who was awesome in the game? Little Travis Konecny that's who. [Sons of Penn]

*We've reach the time of year when all of the people who ever watch hockey (and won't watch it again next season) realize how freaking awesome the NHL playoffs are and write articles singing their praises. [Fox Sports]

*But seriously, they're the best. And the best part is the randomness and unpredictability of them. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Okay we're always pretty well aware of what's going on around the NHL, but how are things in the AHL? [Highland Park Hockey]

*People seem to be kicking around the idea of Marc-Andre Fleury as a Flyer because the Pens almost certainly will trade him, but they'll never trade him to us. So where's he going to end up? [The Comeback]

*On last week's episode of BSH Radio we yelled a bit about the absurdity of the NHL's concussion spotting folks in light of the Crosby thing that happened. The league really needs to start taking this stuff a bit more seriously. [Pension Plan Puppets]
