Maybe he's the reason he's on the flyers now? He has been planning for years, infiltrating teams and sending players our way!

Transparency AND fancy stats?!?!?!?!?

I'm glad Holmgren is still around though. He's got such a great eye for talent, and having people like that in the organization is invaluable.

I'm excited to see what Hexy can do. I think the Flyers are close, but you have to make sure your young guys have time to develop. I think Brayden Schenn is expendable if a number one defenseman is coming back at the draft. We will see.

Agreed, but he's just an adviser at this point. Hextall is the guy doing the deeds.

Chris Stewart hasn't been good since 2010-2011.

Stewart's another inconsistent power forward however unlike Hartnell he's lazy as hell on top of it.

You weren't worried about Holmgren finding you and beating you over the head with his fists?
