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

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

*Now that we've had a few days to let Nolan Patrick-mania die down a little, let's take a look at the draft and judge how well the Flyers did overall. [BSH]

*Seems like overall, most people think Hexy and crew did pretty good. [Inquirer]

*Here's what we can learn from draft weekend as a whole. [Puck Daddy]

*Dave Hakstol is already impressed by Nolan and indicates that the kid definitely has a shot of making his team. [CSN Philly]

*Next up on the Summertime Fun calendar is free agency. Should we expect anything from the Flyers? [Inquirer]

*Speaking of expectations, what should we reasonably expect from Jori Lehtera? [BSH]

*One thing the Flyers definitely need is a goalie, and when we talked to Keith Jones Friday night he thought that Brian Elliott might be Hextall's target. Well, looks like Elliott might end up much farther north. [NBC Sports]

*No, Claude Giroux isn't being shopped and no, he probably won't be traded, but that doesn't mean the Flyers won't take calls. [BSH]

*Brayden Schenn as a top-line center? Well....good luck, St. Louis Blues. [Sportsnet]

*Mark Recchi is finally an NHL Hall of Famer. [TSN]

*Looking back, which team had the all-time best NHL entry draft ever? [Puck Daddy]

*Lucky for us, DGB doesn't think the Flyers are facing a lot of pressure this offseason. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, Brent Burns is one of those dudes you really just can't help but like. [Sports Illustrated]
