Friday Morning Fly By: Enough with the overtime

New, comments

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

Heather Barry

*They let it go on longer than it should have, but the Flyers won a game that they absolutely should have won last night, and that feels nice. RECAP!

*After the thrill of the win, we got some bad news about Sam Morin. A real shame. [Courier-Post]

*Let’s take a step back and discuss the fourth line carousel a bit. [BSH]

*When AV was hired, we heard a lot of Rangers fans warning us that he just hates young players. Terrible at developing them. Never plays them. That doesn’t seem to be the case here though, eh? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of Vigneault, apparently his tough practices are bearing fruit in the third period of games. [Inquirer]

*An interesting hypothetical has been floating around Flyers twitter this week, revolving around the idea of grabbing Jason Spezza off of waivers for the fourth line. Turns out, that might be a viable option. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*If you started watching hockey in the late 90s, like I did, you probably love Teemu Selanne too. He’s a delight. And has a new book out! [ProHockeyTalk]

*Concussions are a huge problem in professional hockey and, as such, get a lot of attention. One thing we don’t hear a lot about, though? The concussion problems for people who just play the game for fun. [New Yorker]

*And finally, in case you missed them, we’ve got a brand new Flyperbole for your Friday as well as a brand new episode of BSH Radio. Additionally, we’ve got a companion piece to this week’s episode that we think you’ll find interesting. Enjoy the weekend!
