It’s been a wild week for the Flyers.

They only played in one game, a 4-3 loss to the Senators after leading 3-1 in the 2nd period, but a ton of the news came off the ice.

The biggest came on Monday with GM Ron Hextall being let go. People were clamoring for Dave Hakstol to be the one getting axed, but Hexy was the odd man out. Then on Wednesday, assistant GM Chris Pryor and assistant coach Gord Murphy were fired. Flyers President Paul Holmgren noted that the team did not “anticipate any further personnel moves in the near term.”

We’ll see if that last sentence lasts for long because GM front-runner Chuck Fletcher met with Holmgren yesterday. He could also bring in Joel Quenneville as head coach. There’s another candidate the Flyers might interview:

The week started with Hextall and will also end with Hextall. He’ll speak to the media today at 11 AM at a place close to the Skate Zone.

The team put Calvin Pickard on waivers and was claimed by the Coyotes. Scott Darling, formerly of Carolina, is also on waivers but is unlikely to be claimed by the Flyers. They play tomorrow night in Pittsburgh against the Penguins.

The Roundup:

The Eagles once again practiced in preparation for Monday night’s game against the Redskins. Here’s the injury report:

Doug Pederson’s press conference was pretty much just discussing injuries too.

Carson Wentz responded to an NFL Network report that he isn’t planting his left leg because he’s not fully recovered from last year’s injury.

“I heard about that, and I don’t know where that came from, to be honest,” Wentz said. “I feel good. I’ve analyzed my mechanics, really, all the way throughout this injury. I’ve never felt that as an issue at all, and I feel really good with where I’m at.”

After crushing the Knicks on Wednesday, the Sixers practiced again in preparation for tonight’s home matchup against the Wizards. Markelle Fultz was at practice as a non-participant, but the Phoenix Suns might be a potential partner for a trade.

Joel Embiid is not only a great teammate, but he also helped Elton Brand become a GM.

“Joel Embiid made me an NBA general manager,” recalls Brand today, laughing. “Playing against guys like Joel, just getting murdered, just getting destroyed every day in practice by him (in 2016), because I probably couldn’t stop him even in my heyday, but still. My knees hurt, my back hurt, I’m playing defense, giving it my all and that’s when I said to myself, ‘Time is up. Time is up.’

“If there was one galvanizing moment that led me to where I am today, to get out, that was it — playing against Joel. Playing against the younger guys, not being able to move like I wanted to move. I can honestly say that Joel Embiid happened to make me an NBA general manager today — and happened to make me a good one because he’s a Sixer.”

Jimmy Butler doesn’t like cheesesteaks, but he also doesn’t think a hot dog is a sandwich so he’s a keeper.
