Flyers on hunt for new GM

Apparently current Philadelphia Flyers GM Paul Holmgren has been informed he's only filling the role on an interim basis, and that team owner Ed Snider has already begun a search for Bobby Clarke's long-term replacement.

Names being bandied about include Ron Hextall, Pat Quinn and even Dave Poulin.

I would like to put my name in the hat.

You mean Robert Esche isn't on the top of the list?.
Oh, my bad, that only happens in the Twilight Zone known as Long Island

Pat would be a great choice... The Flyers problem now is that they are behind the curve in being prepared for the new NHL. Pat Quinn would be a step in the wrong direction.

If Pat gets the job as GM I wonder how long before he becomes the coach again as well?

I met Dave Poulin and skated with him at Notre Dame. I like him a lot. His outsider perspective may be just what they need, but the question is whether Snyder will let him make the changes he really needs to.

The Flyers need to go with someone like Poulin who has extensive knowlege of the collegiate game. That is an area the Flyers have struggled to find talent over the last few years. They drafted a couple guys from colleges this past year, but that was a change from the past trends.
