The Flyers did something yesterday. They fired GM Ron HEXTALL. Dave HAKSTOL lives on, for now.

At first, I thought it would be because Paul Holmgren wanted Hexy to fire Hak and start with a new head coach. But as the day went on, that might not have been the case:

(Audio of McGuire’s explanation here)

It’s a little similar to the Sam Hinkie era with the Sixers. Hexy isn’t completely tanking and trading players for draft picks as the former Sixers GM did, but he was also preaching patience with the rebuild. But the fan base lost patience, and so did front-office personnel. It wasn’t as well-received as The Process.

So who’s next? According to Frank Seravalli, it’s former Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher. Other candidates include Ron Francis, Steve Greeley, Chris Pronger, Scott Mellanby and Garth Snow. Hell no to Garth Snow.

Holmgren and Comcast Spectacor CEO Dave Scott will hold a press conference this morning at 11 AM. Oh, and they play tonight at home against the Senators.

And with that, take a listen to an emergency podcast of Snow The Goalie.

But the team has started to gauge interest in Fultz.
