Friday Morning Fly By: In which we take a break before an early-season rematch

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

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Vegas Golden Knights Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

*So we’re playing Vegas again tomorrow, already, but before we get to the next one let’s look at what we learned from the last one. [BSH]

*We learned yesterday that Nolan Patrick, who left that Sens game in the first, will be out 7-10 days. Bummer. [Flyers]

*One thing that’s already annoying to me personally is the fact that Cal Pickard, who you might remember was waived by the Maple Leafs because they didn’t care that much if they lost him, is being hailed as some sort of goalie savior (mostly by fans, to be fair) because he had one not-bad game. Brian Elliott is a fine goaltender. []

*I hope you’re ready because Chris VandeVelde 2.0, commonly referred to as Corban Knight, is about ready to return from his injury and will absolutely be overused in whatever role our dunce coach decides to place him into. [Courier-Post]

*Meltzer gives us an update on how some of the prospects are faring thus far in their respective leagues. [Flyers]

*So remember when Edmonton traded Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson and we all had a hearty chuckle because you absolutely should get more back for Taylor Hall than that? IT WAS ALMOST WORSE! Ron should be calling Pete Chiarelli every day and just make outlandish offers until he takes one. [Edmonton Journal]

*And finally, as always, we’ve a brand new episode of Flyperbole to ease you out of the work week and into the weekend. Enjoy! [BSH]
