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

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Carolina Hurricanes James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

*Remember when you were a senior in college, and technically you had enough credits to graduate, but you still had to finish up? Sure you still have some classes left this semester, but they don’t really count, so how could you possibly care? Anyway:

*So what did we learn from the games this weekend that sealed the deal for the boys? Well, on Saturday we learned that Carolina may just be Actually Good this season, which could be fun from a playoff perspective. And in Sunday’s Rangers game, we learned that the Flyers are definitely fully mired in the aforementioned senioritis.

*That’s about all there is in Flyers-land, but here’s some various and sundry links for your Monday morning:

*Joking aside, there are still good reasons to watch/care about the Flyers for the remainder of the season. [NBC Sports Philly]

*One positive thing to take away from this season is the emergence of Travis Sanheim as a legit top defenseman. He’s been a force this year. [Philly.com]

*In case you missed it, our weekly check-in with the boys up in Allentown, who aren’t yet dead. [BSH]

*Alex Ovechkin made it to fifty goals again, as if there was any doubt. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The Canadian Women’s Hockey League will fold next month, which is a real bummer. [The CWHL]
