I think Hartnell could be traded, but since Holmgren allowed a no movement clause, the Flyers are stuck with him.
Holmgren is a lousy GM, just as he was a lousy player.
Holmgren is Snider's puppet, so I don't think he'll be sacked.....but he should be!
That's funny considering Hartnell is said to be in the best shape of his career right now. I'm not going to defend the contract, but you're clearly wrong on him being lazy.
