Sam Carchidi of Philly.com,

Holmgren said he has begun the process to select a new general manager. Dean Lombardi, a Flyers senior adviser who helped Los Angeles win two Stanley Cups during his 11 years as its general manager, is believed to be among the strong candidates. When Hextall was the assistant GM with the Kings, Lombardi was his mentor.

Former Flyer Chris Pronger, a Hall of Fame defenseman who works as the Florida Panthers’ senior adviser, has also been mentioned as a candidate. Holmgren coached Pronger in Hartford and was the general manager who made a deal with Anaheim to bring the defenseman to the Flyers.

Danny Briere, a former Flyer who is vice president of operations for the ECHL’s Maine Mariners (owned by Comcast Spectacor, the Flyers’ parent company) and hopes to be an NHL general manager someday, is not quite ready for the Philadelphia job, sources said.
