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

Heather Barry

*We aren’t going to talk about anything else today, so let’s not even pretend: Dave Hakstol was fired, after the Flyers botched just about every single step of the process that brought us to this point. Scott Gordon is our leader, for now, and hopefully the end of this circus will allow the team to regroup and take a step forward. Discuss.

*Chaz had a presser after the firing, and here are the highlights. [Flyers]

*The veteran core of the team, predictably, shoulders the blame for their coach being fired. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Was Dave Hakstol doomed to this fate from the beginning? Looking back, he never appeared to be anything but out of his depth. [The Hockey News]

*So... what next? [NBC Sports Philly]

*We know one thing that’s next, and that’s the Carter Hart era. [BSH]

*Even if things improve for this team, which you have to assume they will, the Flyers have dug themselves a very large points hole. Getting out of one is no easy task. [TSN]
