Orwellian....2+2= 5

And Barry Hanrahan will remain assistant GM in charge of the salary cap and financial decisions.
As far as Hextall...I also wouldn't call him the savior should Holmgren move on to some other capacity within the organization. I still would prefer the Flyers break up the family run business and do something like what the Sixers are doing with Hinkie. As I mentioned hopefully Hextall brings a newer perspective being that he's been away from the Flyers echo chamber for a while.

Also..I would have to agree with some on here that as a player Hextall was a bit overrated and there is nostalgia with him more than anything. His rookie year was awesome but then when he started with his groin injuries he started to be a frustrating goalie to watch particularly when it came to back breaking goals in the playoffs (Claude Lemieux anyone?). He was not exactly a clutch goalie but yeah he was a trailblazer with his puck handling skills until Brodeur and others came on the scene.
