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

NHL: Preseason-New York Islanders at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*We had a big weekend, folks! Biggest news? We couldn’t even get through the preseason without Michal Neuvirth getting injured. Stop me if you’ve heard this song before. [BSH]

*There was also another game against the Islanders, which the Flyers lost in overtime. We’ve got some observations, if you missed it. [BSH]

*The opening night roster is beginning to come into view as the team made a few more cuts over the weekend... [BSH]

*... and lost one guy to the waiver wire. [BSH]

*Ron Hextall doesn’t think that’s the last guy we’ll lose on waivers either. And also we’re getting Andrew MacDonald back sooner than originally anticipated. Hooray. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So that Neuvirth injury. Annoying as it may be, it sure does make the goalie situation a little spicier. []

*It’s been two different journeys to the NHL for Anthony Stolarz and Carter Hart, but, invariably, both of them seem to have a shot at that opening night roster as things stand now. [NBC Sports Philly]

*With Mikhail Vorobyev shining at camp, the Flyers suddenly have an embarrassment of riches at center. []

*And with the addition of JVR, the Flyers have certainly gotten stronger. Things are looking good, you guys! []

*And finally, on German Rubtsov, and why not keeping The Germ around longer at camp is actually the right move for both the Flyers and the young forward. [BSH]
