New head coach Dave Hakstol is going to be just fine and the Flyers might be better than lots of people think. But not that good. Curious to see the kind of impact KHL veteran Evgeny Medvedev, 33, has on the Flyers' blue line. But GM Ron Hextall still has too much contract deadwood on this roster.
The transition under GM Ron Hextall will be slow and at times painful, but it's going to happen. We like the outside-the-box hire of Dave Hakstol as the new coach to guide the team through uncharted waters.
