Thursday Morning Fly By: Declare your principles!

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

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

*It's season preview time babby!!! First up, Captain Claude Giroux. [BSH]

*So yesterday the NHL and the NHLPA released what they're calling a "Declaration of Principles". Interesting concept. Even the Pope got involved! [Puck Daddy]

*So like...what's the deal with Cole Bardreau? Why is the front office so chatty about this rando on a team stacked with prospects? It's a little weird. [Courier-Post]

*The Caps fans have no respect for our goaltending. Which...I mean, yeah. That makes sense. [Japers' Rink]

*Speaking of goalies, let's check in with our old pal Steve Mason, who will hopefully crush it up in Winnipeg. [Arctic Ice Hockey]

*On the list of things that your author finds annoying, the weird silent ban on offer sheets that has been instituted by NHL GMs is pretty high on the list. [NHL Numbers]

*Just how bizarre was the Flyers' offseason? Luckily DGB is here to tell us. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, if the league's 31 GMs are all dumb enough to leave Jaromir Jagr without a job this year, at least we'll be able to enjoy SOMETHING about the Olympics. [ProHockeyTalk]
