*Well well well... Barry Trotz is out of a job. A real Choice by Lou Lamoriello — and only him, apparently! [AP]

*This presents a pretty interesting opportunity for the Flyers, if Barry might want to come here. [BSH]

*But the Flyers will have, one would assume, several competitors in the Barry Trotz market. Most notably, the Winnipeg Jets. [Sportsnet]

*Newest Flyers hire Sami Kapanen has some experience with a Flyers team going from garbage to competitive in one offseason. [NBC Sports Philly]
