After the disappointing failure of Ron Hextall as GM of the Flyers, the team went back to the well to get more alumni to run the squad:

I do really enjoy seeing other NHL teams still stuck in this trap too. I mean, those guys played the game! They know what it's like to be in the room or at ice level! But generally they suck at negotiations, know nothing about managing a salary cap and have zero experience at trading anything but hockey cards.

I won't be predicting any rapid rise from the ashes for the Flyers anytime soon...
