For how long have the Flyers needed a fresh perspective? Since 2012? 2005? Surely not longer than that, if they need one at all..

This team is still in the mix thanks to the weak division (so far) this year, and they have the talent to salvage the season. Would Snider and Holmgren be exonerated, in your eyes, if they won a round or two in the playoffs?
I've said for a number of years that Holmgren has not demonstrated that he is capable of being an NHL General Manager. The team has gotten worse during almost every off-season, and he has often either made mistakes in personnel, or made mistakes in simply applying the collective bargaining agreement. Winning a round in the playoffs is entirely too small of a sample size to exonerate anybody.
