Flyers to extend Paul Holmgren for 3 more years

According to Anthony SanFillipo, Paul Holmgren is about to be rewarded for putting together one of the best teams in hockey. Later this week, the Flyers are going to extend their general manager for three more years in a contract worth 4.5 million dollars.

While Holmgren has made his fair share of questionable moves and struggles with the salary cap, you can't argue with the results on the ice. Since Homer took over for Bobby Clarke 4 years ago, the Flyers have made it to a Conference Final, the Stanley Cup Final and are poised for another deep run this year. Sure, he still doesn't value goaltending and he can't manage money, but Homer has made some great trades and kept the Flyers consistently good doing his tenure.

In Homer we trust, at least for three more years.
