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

Philadelphia Flyers Getty Images/NHLI

*Full disclosure: I really wanted today’s Obscure Player to be Dean McAmmond, but stupid Getty had zero pictures of him in a Flyers jersey. So we settle for another Flyer who was a better Phantom, euro-scout Mark Greig!

*This upcoming season will be the first season in years that Nolan Patrick will be starting after a completely healthy offseason, which a full regimen of training and workouts and all of that stuff. So you could say that it’s okay to be optimistic about Nolan Patrick. [NHL.com]

*The Flyers’ goalie tandem have had a low-key summer, but both goalies are hoping that it leads to success in training camp. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Yesterday Brad unveiled some excellent analysis of the Flyers’ forwards and today he’s got the defense for you. [BSH]

*Five players who are juuuuust ready to turn the corner from Very Good Player to actual NHL star. Including one of our own. [The Hockey News]

*And finally, now that we are getting very near to the season, I want to make sure you guys know about the BSH Radio post-game show. We do it live after every game on Facebook and it, you know...way better than Boruk. Last night Bill got back into the swing of things with a no-game post game to get you familiar with what we do. It’s fun! [BSH]
