Thursday Morning Fly By: What?

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

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers have recalled Tyrell Goulbourne. Of all the possible call-ups. Okay. [BSH]

*The Flyers played the best team in the league and earned a decisive win. Then, the Flyers played one of the worst teams in the East and got their butts handed to them. Tonight, they play the middling New York Islanders! Anything can happen! But before this next game, here’s what we learned from the last one. [BSH]

*One thing that might be important as we head into the back half of the season is the acknowledgment that this team is what it is. The losses shouldn’t shock you. []

*Remember earlier in the season when there was a bit of worry about Oskar Lindblom’s lack of production in the AHL? Worry no more, my friends! [BSH]

*Speaking of prospects, Carter Hart is a complete lunatic and it’s amazing, can’t wait for this kid to get here. [TSN]

*Friedman’s latest 31, for your enjoyment. [Sportsnet]

*New Years resolutions. You make any? Do you hope the Flyers made some? Here are some suggestions for how the NHL can get a little self-improvement in this year. [ESPN]

*You may have noticed that Team USA is currently a little light on goaltenders. Here are the five guys who are likely in the running for the two open spots on the Olympic roster. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We’ve got captains for the All-Star teams... []

*... and we’ve got jerseys. [TSN]

*And finally, about that All-Star game...could the league’s refusal to go to the Olympics lead to an All-Star boycott? That’d be wild. [Puck Daddy]
