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

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-New York Islanders at Philadelphia Flyers John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

*It looks like the league has decided to stop pretending that there as any chance for a January 1 start to the season; new goal? Mid-January. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Also confirmed is that the season will be shortened. Which we all knew, really. Anyhoo, how does this affect the Flyers? [BSH]

*Danny Briere is pretty excited about a few things for this upcoming season. He has concerns, too, but it’s Monday let’s go with the good stuff. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of things to be excited about: Cam York and Bobby Brink. Like... really excited. [BSH]

*If you’re looking for a book to read during these dark days of early sunsets and limited social interactions, perhaps you might check out this book that details the history of pro hockey in Philadelphia. [Inquirer]

*Everybody loves a list, and while usually lists tend to make Flyers fans as a whole pissed off, this one is... really fair. [The Hockey News]

*In keeping with the theme of reversing retro things, what if we looked back on some trades that folks would rather undo? [Sportsnet]

*Perhaos the funniest thing to happen this weekend, a local Boston news station was interviewing people about the weather, and ended up asking Jarome Iginla what he thought of the state of things. With absolutely no idea they were talking to a Hall-of-Famer. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*And finally, in case you missed it, a fun new episode of Flyperbole! [BSH]
