*Well, the Flyers have their new general manager. For better or worse, Chuck Fletcher is our guy now. So here we go. [Flyers] [BSH] [NBC Sports Philly] [Courier-Post] []

*So before we move on to the new guy, let’s take a moment for bid one final farewell to Ron Hextall, who had his faults, but has left this team in a much better state than in which he found it. [BSH]

*If you missed this before, or even if you did not, it’s a good time to revisit our look at Chuck’s time in Minnesota, so you can get an idea of what we are getting into here. [BSH]

*Charlie also looked at Fletcher’s history to evaluate how he’d fit here. [The Athletic]

*Back when he was fired from Minnesota, our pals over at Hockey Wilderness took a look at why he lost his job. Worth taking a look at. [Hockey Wilderness]

*It’s possible that this Fletcher hiring could go down as one of the biggest in the organization’s history for a few reasons. [BSH]

*Anyhoo, Anthony Stolarz has looked pretty okay for a kid who has gotten practically zero playing time this season. []

*The coaching staff is hoping that the big win over the Penguins will fire this team up such that the momentum carries into Thursday’s game against the Blue Jackets. []
