Flyers add fight to front office with Hextall!

The Flyers added some fight to the front office today by bringing back Ron Hextall as Assistant GM and director of hockey operations. (http://goo.gl/UAiIQ)

“I’m really pleased we were able to do this,” Flyers general manager Paul Holmgrem said. “To me, [Hextall] is probably the most highly thought-of guy in the League who is not a general manager. To add him to our staff is just huge.”

Hextall’s contract at LA has ended and I am sure all like myself most Flyers fans were surprised to see Hextall return not as GM. LA fans will not be happy loosing Hextall in what is essentially a lateral move.

This is smart from Snider who can now bring Hextall through as Holmgrem’s long term replacement. However if things don’t go to plan this move will allow Holmgrem to be moved around rather than fired with Hextall waiting in the wings.

Welcome back to Philly Ron, now Flyers fans can really say our front office is harder than yours!
