The Flyers re-sign Andrew MacDonald, Twitter laughs

Okay, we get it. Paul Holmgren is a bad general manager. In fact, let’s all be thankful that the Flyers don’t have anything that remotely resembles a competent managerial team. The Andrew MacDonald signing, sure is something. The JVR for Luke Schenn trade was… terrible. Drafting Claude Giroux was an accident. Bryzgalov, LOL. Mark Streit is how old? You traded Bobrovsky?

Mid-season grade on Holmgren’s 2013-2014 offseason moves
