As you have probably heard already, the Philadelphia Flyers General Manager Ron Hextall was fired today. This is what the Broad Street Hockey slack chat looked like in the immediate aftermath.

It all began with the tweet confirming the news.

Charlie: and there we go

Drew: do you think this means Hak will be gone soon too?

Kurt: WHOA. THAT’S WILD

Steph: WHAT

Kurt: F*CK I HAD A HAKSTOL PREWRITE. BUT NOT A HEXTALL ONE

Paul: OH. MY. GOSH. WOAHHAHHAHAHH

Jason: I...expected them both to go if they were ditching Hexy

Steph: ME TOO. I CAN’T STOP SCREAMING

Drew: #BringBackBarber

Steph: hoooooooly sh*t

Paul: This is ... wow. Was not expecting this. Makes me think he refused to do anythingand was just gonna ride it out.

Kyle: HOLY SH*T

Steve: If f*cking Homer is the GM again I am going to lose my sh*t

Craig: You guys are forgetting Lombardi

Kyle: I wonder if this was Dave Scott telling Hextall to fire Hak and he refused resulting in this

Jason: I’ve had similar thoughts Kyle

Kyle: Especially the whole “differing philosophies” thing

Steph: I still have no words

Kelly: HOLY F*CK WHAT

Jake: FAM WHATS GOING ON

Steph: HEXTALL IS OUT

Kyle: WELCOME TO CHAOS FOLKS

Craig: There’s no way the coaching staff stays on right?

Kyle: I can’t see it

Craig: I’m not living in a Hextall-free world with f*cking Hakstol and Lappy

Maddie: Fam I have arisen from a nap and WHAT THE F*CK

Kyle: WELCOME MADDIE

Maddie: WAIT IT WAS ONLY RON

Kurt: so, any good lists out there for GM candidates?

Steve: brb getting you a list of flyers alumni, kurt

Kyle: Ilya Bryzgalov

Steve: you know what, kyle, let’s f*ckin do it

And that just about does it, this has been a wild and crazy day folks and I imagine it’s only going to get wilder over the next couple of days. The Ron Hextall era in Philadelphia is over, and it’s time for a new GM and most likely a new coach, to get this team over the hump.
