You have to think Hextall, but people on twitter are saying that Snider & Holmgren may be disagreeing, if its that, do they move Clarke back into that roll?

Have to think with the number of GM openings, the Flyers are making sure no one comes calling for Ron Hextall anymore. You don't hold press conferences for front offices changes unless they are big ones.

Putting Clarke back in the role of GM is a backwards move. Hopefully it's just naming Hexy as the GM and Homer moving back to a scouting role.

Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about this. Homers made some mistakes but I'd still say he's a good GM and I'm not sure how Hextall will be. What if he seriously ****s us somehow?

In my mind it's basically good GM who has good and bad bad moments vs complete unknown.

How long until people get on Hextall for sitting on his hands every offseason?

This could become a very interesting off season. Now we get to see what Hextall thinks of the roster and how he thinks we become legitimate contenders.

Means we probably will have to blame Hextall for Brayden Schenn's new bloated contract

The Flyers have decided to promote Ron Hextall to general manager, and elevate current GM Paul Holmgren to the position of team president.

A press conference has been scheduleld [sic] for 11:30 a.m. to confirm the news.

Good points on twitter....some suggesting that Flyers have been getting calls to talk to Hextall by other teams, forced them to make this change today.

Cool tapes. How long before people turn on Hextall, or in the alternative, how long before people refuse to criticize Hextall for the same types of moves Homer made?

I love how leading up to this it was all secrecy and BS. I don't get why they do stuff like that. Obviously for trades and stuff it makes sense...don't want other teams to know what is going on so you can get a better deal. But **** like this I just don't get.

Also, I got a PM from some dude the other day predicting this would happen. I asked for a source and he said that he was the source. Looks like he was right. Good guess, or nice work getting the info. I think it was JediFlyer or something like that.

I guess b/c its the unknown, but I am more nervous about Hextall than I am about Homer.

If Hextall gets rid of some of our idiot players I will worship the ground he walks on. Hopefully he sees the roster the way a lot of us do, lacking in speed and smarts. So hopefully bye bye Emery, Grossmann, Vinny, Rinaldo, Rosehill, and Downie.

Hopefully Hexy learned a thing or two from Lombardi.

Most likely they were actually planning on Homer staying this one last year but they started to get a lot of calls about speaking to Hextall which accelerated their timeline.

In a 57 word "article" they managed to spell a word incorrectly. Good editing there but that's the world we live in. Always gotta be the first one to get the news out and sacrifice quality to do so.
