Tuesday Morning Fly By: Less than one month until the Flyers pick #2 overall (up from #13).

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

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

*Did you know that the Flyers, who were originally slated to pick at the number 13 position in the NHL entry draft, won a lottery and moved all the way up to pick #2? It's true! You've read a lot of Nico vs. Nolan articles but none like this one, I assure you. [Philly Is Flyer]

*Speaking of Nico and Nolan, both of these boys won some major awards in the CHL. That's cool. [CSN Philly]

*Charlie takes a good long look at the season Andrew MacDonald had this year, which god bless him must have been painful to do. So read it. [BSH]

*The entry draft isn't the only draft fun we have to look forward to this summer, so let's think again about who the Flyers might lose to Las Vegas in a few weeks. [CSN Philly]

*Ron Hextall hasn't made a ton of trades since becoming the GM of the Flyers, but let's rank all of them anyway. [Sports Talk Philly]

*Really good AHL coverage is hard to come by, and starting next season it's gonna cost you a tiny bit of cash. [Highland Park Hockey]

*Anyone else watch the Memorial Cup this weekend? The Windor Spitfires took home the prize. [ProHockeyTalk]

*If you're wondering why Peter Laviolette has been so successful in Nashville, look to the blueline. We had Ryan Parent when he was here. [Yahoo Canada]

*And finally, from your comfy seat aboard the Predators bandwagon, you might be forced to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins become the first team in the cap era to repeat as Cup champs. That'll be something. [ProHockeyTalk]
