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

NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*Noted Very Good Hockey Team™ the Nashville Predators are in town tonight and it’ll be very interesting to see if the Flyers can repeat their strong performance from Tuesday night against some much tougher competition. But before we dive into the next game, let’s look at what we learned from the last one. [BSH]

*Charlie’s also got Ten Things for you. If you subscribe, that is. If you don’t you should, it’s good stuff. [The Athletic]

*Perhaps the most important thing we learned is that Carter Hart did not crumble under the pressure of the NHL, and also he has a very adorable family. [Philly.com]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks of Carter Hart’s debut? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Chaz is still getting to know his new organization, and apparently no one told him there are more than one Skate Zone location. Which lead to a lot of driving for this poor guy. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So how about those Phantoms?! [BSH]

*There’s some weird stuff going on with Buffalo’s Patrik Berglund [ProHockeyTalk]

*You may think that the NHL having a terrible playoff format is a recent development, but nope. DGB looks back at all of the dumb ways the NHL has structured the most exciting part of their product. [The Athletic]

*It’s almost World Juniors time!! Which is extremely fun, if you ask me. And Team Canada is predictably stacked, including our boy Morgan Frost. [Sportsnet]
