As always, we turn to Twitter in the wake of big sports news to inform us of the general fan outlook. Apparently, there are some real jokers out there with thoughts on the Ron Hextall/Paul Holmgren Flyers news. Let's watch:

Is there another NHL team where you can see 10-20 jersey's of the GM during a game?

Guys, we're focusing on the wrong thing. The REAL question is what former Flyer will replace Hextall in a few years?
— #Dixon (@letmebefrankbro) May 7, 2014
Hextall's first mission: become the first GM to score a goal in a game.

So, do you guys think Ron Hextall will be able to *save* the Flyers? I hope he *sticks* with it.

Hextall's first move? Buyout MacDonald and then get into a fight with Betteman when he tells him he can't do that.

Ron Hextall promoted to Flyers GM. Roman Cechmanek promoted to GM of his fantasy league team.

Also, why the hell did Snider let Holmgren hand out a $30 million contract if he was leaving the job only two weeks later?
