When it comes to the Philadelphia Flyers and the firing of head coach Peter Laviolette on Monday, there’s a lot of layers to that onion.

My takeaway: the clock is ticking on current general manager Paul Holmgren and assistant general manager Ron Hextall. Hextall held the same position with the Los Angeles Kings before moving to Philly during the summer and is now a heartbeat away from the GM chair in the land of the cheesesteak sandwich.
