Worked for the Kings.

Who's that journalist who asked about the Phantoms? Give him a raise.

Hextall's answer to Eskin was awesome.

The question was something like, Why haven't the Flyers won in 39 years?

When someone asks a good question, I assume it's Meltzer.

Hexy's face is less painful to look at than Homer's.

Every press conference Eskin's there to stir **** up & then act like he's not doing it on purpose.

Pretty optimistic with Hextall as the new GM. I loved his answers and he truly seems to love the Flyers.

Neil Hartman just sounded like we were an organization flailing about in the basement of the NHL, and we're making this switch to save our franchise.

Come on man. This isn't a desperate move.

After watching the press conference I feel good with Hexy in place. "young players and draft picks". Nice.
