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

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

*The Flyers went ahead and made the Samuel Morin extension official yesterday. [Flyers]

*Development camp kicks off today with the Trial On The Isle, and Meltzer has some notes about what to expect from the kids this year. [Hockeybuzz]

*The best thing about dev camp is getting to see the best of the best of Flyers’ prospects on the ice. In the summer. When we are yearning for hockey thing. [Philly.com]

*Speaking of the kids, the newest Flyers, drafted this past weekend, will be at dev camp. That’s fun. But what do we think of Hextall’s draft haul? Was it enough? [BSH]

*We took a look at what the fans thought of the draft. [BSH]

*Wayne Simmonds future with the team is still up in the air, but evidently it was teams asking for too much that kept Ron from making any trades at the draft. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We talked a lot on BSH Radio this week about what kind of player Ron tends to draft, and about how they tend to be undersized. That’s the way the game is going, and it is being reflected in the players being selected. [Hockeybuzz]

*Big news yesterday was the announcement of this year’s Hall of Fame class and the league is actually doing something properly and inducting Willie O’Ree. [The Color of Hockey]

*Qualifying offers have been going out, and there are a few notable names not being tendered by their respective teams. [The Hockey News]

*The rest of the class is uh...less exciting. And, in ways, downright infuriating. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The NHL is super boring and risk-averse, so we definitely won’t see any of these fun headlines in the next few weeks. Despite DGB pleading with the gods to make them happen. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, speaking of this week’s BSH Radio, it’s this week’s BSH Radio! We spent a lot of time recapping Ron’s draft picks but also get ahead of the free agent game. Have a listen! [BSH]
