My only true vent concerns the person in charge of making the moves. Ed Snider manipulates Holmgren just as he used to manipulate Clarke.
What the Flyers organization needs to do is run itself, and by doing so would mean that they would hold onto the younger players and prospects in the organization, rather than dealing them away for a veteran who has played his best hockey on another team several years prior.
The Flyers have some truly talented players in their system, but the Snider approach of "win-it-all-now" will further bankrupt the talent pool by dealing away their future.
Hextall should be calling the shots, and I hope he will before draft day ( which will be in Philly this year, and if Holmgren is still Snider's puppet-boy, they'll bullocks up the whole process by trading down their picks to acquire another old vet who is already past his best games).
