Wednesday Morning Fly By: Bedeviled

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

NHL: New Jersey Devils at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*Not that you missed it, but the Flyers lost against the Devils last night despite a valiant rally after declining to play for the first 40+ minutes or so. [BSH]

*No link, but will be interesting to what Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher says — if anything — during his media availability today.

*The next time the Flyers play the Islanders will be far too soon, in our humble opinion — but because we’re told that isn’t possible, here’s some takeaways from the teams’ three-game set. [BSH]

*To the tune of the That 70’s Show theme song, the prospects — they’re all alright, they’re all alright! [BSH]

*ICYMI...Bill’s rant about the Flyers’ latest implosion is must listen. [BSH]

*As always 31 Thoughts is a must-read, but especially this version with Flyers-centric content right from the jump with Nashville’s Ryan Ellis and Mattias Ekholm but then takes a downward spiral with a Marc Staal mention. [Sportsnet]

*No Flyers on a list of the NHL’s top 10 — and honorable mention — wingers as polled by executives, coaches, and players; but Johnny Gaudreau is on there and we all know he’ll don the Orange and Black soon enough one way or another. [ESPN+]

*We’ve got new NHL Draft Lottery rules, and this time only the top two picks will be determined and the changes will be implemented for the 2022 draft lottery. [ESPN]

*More NHL Draft Lottery, because it’s got a few more good nuggets in there. [Sportsnet]

*Reports are that the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) is adding a seventh team in Montreal, and expected to join for next season. [AP]
