When push came to shove, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall had to consider the field of free agency.
In the past six months, Ron Hextall has managed to clear up cap space and roster spots on defense by trading Chris Pronger's contract, Nicklas Grossmann, Braydon Coburn and Kimmo Timonen.
The Flyers won’t be going to arbitration, after all, with restricted free agent defenseman Michael Del Zotto.
If nothing else, at least Ron Hextall knows he is nearing the end of his journey to re-sign restricted free agent defenseman Michael Del Zotto.
The fireworks have already begun over Flyerdom.
