Paul Holmgren stepping aside as Flyers President
"I approached Dave about my idea to step aside to spend more time with my family. I have complete confidence in Chuck in his new role, leading the Flyers to great things”
I can’t say enough about Paul Holmgren, who I’ve known for a long time and is as genuinely as good a person as there is in the league. Wish him nothing but the best moving forward. https://t.co/tkhryQrPNW
Paul Holmgren already has the "I don't have to go into the office anymore" beard. (per Flyers PR from today)
Around the same time as all of the Quenneville madness, I was told Paul Holmgren would be retiring and that he knew 2018-19 would be his last season as one of the decision makers for the Flyers. This context helps make sense of all the moves that seemed rushed at the time.
The timing felt right for Paul Holmgren to move to a new role, and Chuck Fletcher was a big reason why, writes @JHallNBCS
Now, we’ll see if Fletcher and the new-look Flyers can deliver different results.

It's been a year of mass change in the Flyers organization, and with today's news that Paul Holmgren is stepping down as team president and into an advisory role, the primary braintrust is now Chuck Fletcher and Dave Scott.
My take on Paul Holmgren.
He had some great moves and he had some bad moves, just like every single GM.
I hope he has a wonderful life with his family.
What the #Flyers' front office shuffle means for Dave Scott, Paul Holmgren and Chuck Fletcher. https://t.co/otLQ6fRm6V
Paul Holmgren was a player, scout, coach, director of player development, assistant and general manager for the Flyers. Thursday he stepped aside. https://t.co/5zi98tYpBe
As with all Flyers lifers, Paul Holmgren won’t truly leave. But with the president now stepping into an advisor role, it's up to Chuck Fletcher and Dave Scott to shape the team for the foreseeable future.

The death of the organization as we always knew it. Flyers are now corporate and nobody cares. History will treat Paul Holmgren well. Fan base dying, interest dying, the Orange and Black have become irrelevant.
Paul Holmgren just stepped aside as President of the Flyers. Man this offseason is something else
When I was a kid I loved Paul Holmgren he was tough,intimadating,& a pretty good player.I think he was 1st American to get hat trick in Stanley Cup playoffs.Problem is the Flyers have been stagnant for years,& he's been involved in decisions in that era.
Flyers president Paul Holmgren moves to a Senior Adviser role. Been in the Flyers organization, player, GM, Prez, for 40 years. Has 8 grandchildren that he wants to be around a bit more. #NHL
The thing about Paul Holmgren that everyone is missing is that we are on the verge of runaway climate change and we need a complete re-think of the global economy to ensure a just society & avoid planetary catastrophe.
Are we all in with James Ennis and the #Sixers and will how will the #Flyers improve away from Paul Holmgren as Team President? All this tomorrow from @PhiladelphiaSN
Paul Holmgren stepping down as President of the Flyers was sudden and unexpected. Kinda like when Fidel Castro stepped down as Cuba's dictator.
Paul Holmgren stepped down as president? To properly express my feelings, I'd like to quote his predecessor, Bobby Clarke, "I don't care. He hurt this organization. I could care less about him."

Out from under Paul Holmgren as Team President, will the #Flyers be a playoff team next season?
Paul Holmgren was a much better GM than Hextall.
