Tortorella would have been fired already or his walking papers would have been close to being issued if he was still here with this team. The 06-07 Flyers had a horrible year. Bobby Clarke resigned as GM and Ken Hitchcock was fired. AGM Paul Holmgren was named the replacement to Clarke. Jon Stevens replaced Hitch. Holmgren made some nice moves. Freddy Mayer for Alexei Zhitnik and then flipped Zhitnik for Coburn. Forsberg was traded for Upshall,Parent and a #1 which was sent back to Nashville for the rights to Hartnell and Timonen. He traded a draft pick for Biron. Then in the summer Pitkanen was sent to Edmonton for Lupul. The Flyers had young guys like Richards,Carter and Umberger. They lost in the ECF in 2008 to Pittsburgh.
