Tuesday Morning Fly By: Just win, you jerks

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

NHL: Dallas Stars at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*Game day! We’re fully into the home stretch and what’s cool is the Flyers totally control their own fate. All they have to do is win games. Get points. JUST WIN THE GAMES, GUYS. Ahem. The boys are in Dallas tonight and Dallas has been trash poop lately so it’s a big opportunity to get TWO points. []

*Before tonight’s game let’s look back to Sunday’s game, in which the boys earned ONE point, with morning observations. [BSH]

*In Phantoms news, Danick Martel has been named player of the week up there in Allentown. Should of kept. [Phantoms Hockey]

*Speaking of the Phantoms, we’ve got a prospect report for you. Lots of playoff action for the kids right now. [BSH]

*Some would say the Pittsburgh Penguins are in a better position to win right now than they were at this point last season. Eww. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The Hart Trophy race, which probably has the most crowded field in recent memory last season, may come down to a two-man showdown between two of the best in the West. [TSN]

*As the college kids finish out their seasons, some NHL teams are going to use this as an opportunity to improve heading into the playoffs. Or, like Sabres, sign their insanely good prospect to finish out their lost season and burn a year of his ELC. [Die By The Blade]

*Some KHL teams are also wrapping up and that’s really going to help the already-stacked Nashville Predators, who are bringing Eeli Tolvanen over. Hoooo boy they are gonna be good. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, a few NHL GMs are going to have to answer a lot of questions after wasting a year of top talent with no playoffs to show for it. [Puck Daddy]

*Editor’s note: sorry for the delay this morning. It’s hard to differentiate between AM and PM sometimes.
