Hextall Takes Care of Business on First Day of Free Agency

emery_islanders

Tweet
The Philadelphia Flyers organization has often been linked in rumors with every high-priced free agent available on July 1. Bankrolled by Ed Snider, management could afford to throw ludicrous sums of money at free agents.
This approach backfired in the summer of 2012, when then-general manager Paul Holmgren first threw all of his efforts into signing [...]

Flyers Qualify Just Four RFAs in Start of Hextall Era

Brandon_Manning

Tweet
An ongoing problem in the Paul Holmgren era for the Philadelphia Flyers was a lack of contract space.
The organization regularly flirted with the fifty-contract limit, ignoring the additional “slide rule” affected contracts that allowed for players under the age of 20 with entry level contracts to not count towards that limit.
In 2011, the organization had [...]

Tweet
The 2014 NHL Entry Draft continued Saturday morning with rounds two through seven. The Flyers had fairly strong draft classes in 2011 and 2012, though the jury is out on the selections from 2013.
The best way I can describe the 2014 draft class for Philadelphia is “Curious.”
For one, the Flyers did not draft a single [...]

2011 NHL Entry Draft - Rounds 2-7

The Philadelphia Flyers, hosts of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft beginning this Friday, are currently scheduled to select their first pick following 16 other general managers.
Per the latest round of rumors, general manager Ron Hextall may be looking to make his first selection a bit earlier.

Time Running Out For Tye McGinn?

McGinn

Tweet
The philosophy touted by new Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall in the past month and a half has been “build though the draft.”
Hextall also stressed back in May the key positions to build around.
Per Dave Isaac of the Courier Post:
“The one thing that hasn’t changed in my mind about building a team is build [...]
