As I feared, these moves tell me they want to be better next season, but are not necessarily looking any further into the future or representative of a larger vision for turning this team into a consistent Cup contender.
This is management continuing to express their lack of patience/discipline and wanting to increase revenue short term.
How Holmgren even has a job with the Flyers any longer is scary, but for him to be heavily involved in this "re-tool" is lunacy. Funny how one of the moves they made was dumping one of his worst signings as GM, McDonald.
These moves likely cement Patrick in at 3rd C where he'll struggle to develop and may lead to trading Ghost for a veteran winger of no substance.
It is a shame they did not let Hextall do a full rebuild and then pulled the plug when his hybrid rebuild was not moving fast enough for their liking. It must be hard for Hextall to watch.
