4:36: Carchidi also writes that he believes Hakstol will be dismissed. As for who will replace him, he adds that Quenneville is just one of many coaches the team is considering. One significant option would be for the team to promote Lehigh Valley Phantoms’ coach Scott Gordon and see if he can motivate many of his former players to be successful.
3:59: Philly.com’s Sam Carchidi writes that while he believes Isaac’s report about the hiring of Quenneville, he asked Dave Scott, the CEO of the Flyers’ parent company, more than three hours ago about the report that Quenneville was coming to Philadelphia. The answer was “Not true.” Carchidi writes that something easily could have changed since then, however. Regardless, nothing has been confirmed.
3:42: Multiple sources are indicating that there is no deal. Fox Sports’ Andy Strickland writes that Quenneville said reports that he is taking the Flyers’ job are not true. TSN’s Darren Dreger also reports that it remains status quo in Philadelphia and no decision has been made on Hakstol.
3:24: It looks like Philadelphia Flyers’ new general manager Chuck Fletcher has made his big move. The new GM intends to fire head coach Dave Hakstol and will hire three-time Stanley Cup winner Joel Quenneville as their next head coach, according to Cherry Hill Courier-Post’s Dave Isaac. There has been no official word from the Flyers although the report says that Philadelphia intends to officially let Hakstol go either tonight or Monday morning. The scribe also adds that Fletcher has already offered the position to Quenneville and he’s accepted it.
