Thursday Morning Fly By: Bonne chance, au revoir, a bientôt

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

Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

*In what can only be described as THE BEST possible outcome, the Las Vegas Golden Knights saved Dave Hakstol from himself and selected Pierre-Edouard Bellemare in the expansion draft. My god this week is amazing. [BSH]

*And here we go, straight from Vegas: the full list of players chosen in the expansion draft. [BSH]

*For a while there it looked like GM George McPhee might take Michal Neuvirth off our hands, but nope. Here are five actually good goalies who were exposed, but shockingly not taken, in past expansion drafts. [The Hockey News]

*Speaking of those past drafts, let's take a look back at the Flyers' expansion draft history. They've done pretty well. [BSH]

*With PEBs gone we need a new alternate captain. How's about Ivan Provorov? [Metro Philly]

*Oh yeah, there were some awards handed out last night too. [SB Nation]

*Folks, we have a date for the home opener! Mark your calendars. Prepare your lives. [Flyers]

*The season will open October 4 in San Jose. Full schedule comes out today, woo! [BSH]

*In some Phantoms news, they've resigned one of their key players. [Highland Park Hockey]

*Poor Marian Hossa might be forced to retired for a really bizarre reason. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, what'd you think of the new jerseys? Some people are very much not happy. [Matchsticks and Gasoline]
