Thursday Morning Fly By: The end of an era

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

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*In case you guys missed the big news yesterday, our own Charlie O'Connor is going to be heading up the Flyers portion of the brand new Philadelphia outpost of The Athletic. We are super sad to lose him but super super happy that he's going to be covering our favorite team full-time. Give The Athletic your money it's going to be well worth it. [BSH]

*Anyhoo, yesterday was Flyers day over at ProHockeyTalk! Poor Claude Giroux is getting dragged over there, too. [ProHockeyTalk]

*They always take a look at a player they think is on the cusp of making the NHL, and for us they chose Travis Sanheim, who really could end up a permanent fixture this season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And just by chance, Travis Sanheim is the latest kiddo to get our 25 Under 25 treatment. [BSH]

*It's the end of another era too, as CSN Philly will become "NBC Sports Philadelphia" ahead of the hockey season. [BSH]

*And finally, this is a really fun exercise if you'd like to kill some time today: DGB constructs the best possible NHL lineup using guys who've all worn the same jersey number. [Sportsnet]
