A lot of people are talking about Quenneville when Hakstol inevitably gets fired, but I honestly think AV is the answer in Philly.

Seems like they are firing the wrong people. Hextall cleaned up Holmgren's big problems while drafting a lot of great prospects and now Holmgren wants to get aggressive again and go back into the same type of mess like the last time. Maybe Benning can pluck out a nice prospect or two from them for one of the vets on the team.

The Flyers will interview Chuck Fletcher for the vacant general manager position later today.

Read that as Cliff Fletcher. Thought he might be dead already. He isn't.

The Flyers have received permission to interview Blue Jackets assistant GM Bill Zito for their vacant general manager position. 

 

Zito worked as an attorney and player agent before joining the Blue Jackets front office in 2013.

Ron Hextall says there was no indication that he was going to be fired and that it was 20 seconds from the time he walked into Paul Holmgren’s office to the time he walked out unemployed.

 

“I didn’t see this coming in any way,” Hextall said. “I was shocked. I was stunned, yeah.”

Paul Holmgren is the Kevin Lowe of the Flyers. Good ol boys club guy with 9 lives and even when he gets fired from the GM chair, gets a promotion to be the guy behind the scenes with MORE autonomy. Funny how these franchises are stuck the way they are. It’s too bad as I thought Hex was doing a great job building the team for a long window for the next decade. Now comes the knee jerking and rush job to make the playoffs. Aquaman make sure we don’t lose patience with our plan.
