Tuesday Morning Fly By: Okay enough already about the Sixers

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

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

*Focus on the Flyers, people, it's a big week! And if Bob McKenzie is right (and he almost always is), then we will be welcoming Nolan Patrick to the fam on Friday night. [TSN]

*Nolan Patrick has NHL hockey in his blood, and his uncle thinks he's going to be a pretty special player. [CSN Philly]

*Ron Hextall knows he's getting a pretty special player too. [CSN Philly]

*The very best version of the Las Vegas Golden Knights is probably not going to be very good. [Puck Daddy]

*But what if The Nerds were picking the players and not the Hockey Guys.... [The Hockey News]

*Ron Hextall is rightfully getting some praise for the way he's set up his team for the expansion draft. The Flyers are one of few teams who really can't be hurt by Vegas' choice. [Puck Daddy]

*What would an all-time roster protection list look like for the Flyers? This is a fun exercise. [Sportsnet]

*The U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame has announced its 2017 class of inductees. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, the Oilers fans seem to think signing Jordan Weal is a really good idea for their team. Hopefully Hexy agrees! [The Copper & Blue]
