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

*After landing the number two overall pick in the last draft, it’s easy to be, shall we say, less-than-impressed by holding #19 this season. But you can find some good stuff there. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of the draft, we continue our look at the possible draftees in our draft profile series. Next up, Filip Zadina. [BSH]

*We’re also continuing our grades for the season by taking a look at the B squad. [BSH]

*Suggesting that the Pens losing to the Caps somehow means that the Flyers “process” is nowhere near completion seems like a stretch to this gal but I’ll let you guys form your own opinion. []

*Shayne Gostisbhere credits his very, very good 2017-’18 season to...snot. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Lehigh Valley Phantoms have taken a lead in their second round series against the Charlotte Checkers, which is pretty cool. [BSH]

*Noted piece of shit Brad Marchand seems to acknowledge that he is a piece of shit, which feels like a step in the right direction. Acceptance is important! [ProHockeyTalk]

*Marc-Andre Fleury, the guy who used to really under-perform in the playoffs, is having one of the best runs in the whole history of the league. And his former team is golfing. Ha. [FiveThirtyEight]

*MAF’s play has been a big part of what’s been driving the success of the Golden Knights, but is this too much winning too soon? [ESPN]

*And finally, who would you say is this year’s Kimmo Timonen? Here are five players most deserving of a Stanley Cup this season. [USA Today]
