FLYERS General Manager Paul Holmgren was listed in stable condition at Cooper Medical Center in Camden last night after a scary end to the Labor Day holiday. Holmgren, 55, was injured in a bicycle accident yesterday while exercising in Avalon, N.J. Exact details and the cause of the accident remained unclear last night, but Holmgren was admitted to the hospital with multiple fractures and cuts that required stitches. Holmgren was reportedly wearing his helmet. The Flyers issued no statement or comment about Holmgren's health, though a few of his players took to Twitter.

Maybe Paul Holmgren remembers too well what it was like being an NHL player, dragging through the final installment of a three-game road trip, playing for the fourth time in six days. Or maybe coaches see the game differently than most folks, evaluating effort on such criteria as poise, composure and scoring chances allowed. Whatever the reason, Holmgren stood up for his players last night, asserting that he thought they did not get outworked in a somnolent 4-1 loss to the host Washington Capitals.

Perhaps Paul Holmgren's stance on the eve of his club's first full-scale workouts was predictable. But the Flyers' coach professed no anxiety over the absence of goaltender Ron Hextall. In fact, Holmgren professed a high degree of satisfaction with his goalies, who will take the ice at 9:15 this morning. All Flyers veterans except Hextall reported to training camp yesterday, at the Coliseum in Voorhees on a brutal 95-degree day. They joined the rookies, who have been in camp since Wednesday.

MY, MY, HOW the world has changed. The Flyers, yesterday, shipped off a player who Ed Snider just last month compared to Bobby Clarke and Sidney Crosby so they could give a goalie $51 million. A Russian goalie. Think of the irony here. The last time the Flyers won a Stanley Cup, the Russians were the bad guys. Now, they're your guys. Now, your Stanley Cup hopes rest on two goalies who wouldn't get served at Geno's, on account they don't speak da English real good.

The Flyers received positive medical news Monday: Right winger Ian Laperriere and center Jeff Carter are recovering ahead of schedule. Especially Laperriere. In a surprising development, Laperriere - sidelined since April 22 because of a brain bruise, a broken orbital bone, and a concussion - could be returning to the Flyers during the Eastern Conference finals against the Montreal Canadiens. The Flyers have a one-game-to-none lead in the series, which resumes Tuesday at the Wachovia Center.

SAN JOSE - As Paul Holmgren carved out his final trade-deadline preparations on Sunday afternoon from his bunker at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J., he spoke to coach Peter Laviolette on the other side of the country to get his take on the Flyers. The two talk almost every day, regardless of whether Holmgren is on the trip. "I told him that I really liked our team, our makeup, and I like our chemistry," Laviolette said after his team wrapped up a 65-minute skate at Sharks Ice. "We're hard to play against.

Andy Reid insists he wasn't your typical quarterbacks coach in Green Bay, wasn't just a garage mechanic of an assistant whose sole function was to give Brett Favre a monthly lube and oil change. "Coach [Mike] Holmgren and [general manager] Ron Wolf gave me a tremendous amount of responsibility with the Green Bay Packers," Reid said yesterday after being hired as the Eagles' new head coach. "They gave me the kind of responsibility that makes me feel very comfortable im taking this next step [to head coach]

WITH A PLATE of food perhaps simmering to the side and a press box overflowing with pro scouts from a bevy of teams, the Flyers' brass put its first foot forward last night toward improving the team before the Feb. 27 trade deadline. Without giving up a key piece of their lineup, the Flyers bolstered their defensive corps by adding Dallas blue liner Nicklas Grossman in exchange for a second-round pick in 2012 and a third-rounder in 2013. Neither one of the picks is the Flyers', though both are shaping up to be better than their current selections in those rounds, based on standings.

FIRST, James van Riemsdyk was being shipped to Toronto last February. This week, he reportedly was holding up a deal to be sent to Columbus. Van Riemsdyk, 23, has heard the trade rumblings for the better part of a year now - since signing that 6-year, $25.5 million extension that kicks in this fall - but he can do little more than laugh. On Sunday night, NBC10's Howard Eskin reported that van Riemsdyk has delayed surgery on a torn labrum in his hip to "make it difficult for the Flyers to complete a trade" that includes Blue Jackets star Rick Nash.

CALGARY, Alberta - Paul Holmgren, elevated to club president last May, has no regrets about leaving the Flyers general manager's job and handing the reins to Ron Hextall. Making his second trip with the team this season because he wanted to be at ceremonies Tuesday in Vancouver honoring his good friend, the late Pat Quinn, Holmgren said he likes the new challenges of being the Flyers president. "I still feel a part of things," Holmgren said Thursday before the game against the Flames.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Paul Holmgren, who has spent 36 seasons in the Flyers organization and is in his first year as club president, and NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly were honored Thursday as co-winners of the Lester Patrick Trophy for their outstanding service to hockey in the United States. The event took place as part of the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Minneapolis, near where Holmgren grew up. Holmgren, 59, a former Flyers player, coach, and general manager, has been involved in furthering the sport in various roles for USA Hockey.

THE LITTLE BROTHER wouldn't go away. Mark Holmgren would sneak off to join his friends on the baseball diamond, on the football field, would try to skate his way from the small house in East St. Paul, Minn., to the outdoor rink two blocks away. There, little brother would be, almost always, a step behind. Welcome or not. Almost always, he was not. "We were real competitive with each other," Paul Holmgren, the Flyers president, said this week. "It wasn't the same brother relationship that a lot of people have.

WHEN PAUL Holmgren was promoted to Flyers team president last May, he didn't pack any boxes. Unlike his predecessor, Peter Luukko, who also served as Comcast-Spectacor chief operating officer, Holmgren didn't want or need a cushy office at Wells Fargo Center. For one, keeping his old digs at the team's practice facility in Voorhees, N.J., allowed him to stay closer to his South Jersey home. More importantly, with an office window that overlooks the ice, Holmgren could remain close enough to feel the heartbeat of the team he has spent almost his entire adult life employed by. "I'm still around the hockey team enough to feel the excitement of it," Holmgren said.

BACK IN August, with hockey training camps and the buzz of the season still too far away to grasp, NHL Network re-aired the clinching game of the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. There was John LeClair, named to the all-tournament team, going up against a young Eric Lindros in his prime. The pre-high-definition footage seemed almost grainy compared to today's standards. But when the horn sounded in a stunned Molson Centre in Montreal, with the United States erasing a 2-0 deficit late in the third period against Canada, the cameras caught an unforgettable image.

After an up-and-down, eight-year reign as the Flyers' general manager, Paul Holmgren was elevated Wednesday to club president, a position in which he will oversee the club's business and hockey operations. Holmgren, who handed the GM duties to his top assistant, Ron Hextall, made it clear that he will be only a sounding board for trades and signings, and that Hextall is running the show. "All hockey decisions fall on Ron's lap. No question," Holmgren said, adding that Hextall had the "final say" and "full authority and autonomy.

THE DAY last summer that Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren brought Ron Hextall back from Los Angeles to be his assistant, he knew two things - that he was making the Flyers better, and that he was hiring the guy who would be his replacement. The move was one part self-confident and one part selfless. To me, that will always be Holmgren. He knew what he was doing that day, and the implications. The thing that Holmgren did not know was the timetable. But within 5 months, he was already talking to Hextall about a succession plan.

Ron Hextall, named the seventh general manager in Flyers history on Wednesday, called it "my dream job. " A former standout goalie with the Flyers who also was known for his brawling style, Hextall replaced Paul Holmgren, who stepped aside and was promoted to club president. "I've got a special feeling about this organization and I am absolutely honored and thrilled to be sitting here," Hextall said during a news conference Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center. "I'll do the best job I can, and I'll work hard to reach the ultimate goal of bringing the Stanley Cup back to Philadelphia.

About 90 minutes after Ed Snider hinted that Paul Holmgren may become president of the Flyers, Holmgren said he would remain as general manager next season. Snider, chairman of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast Spectacor, said the club hired assistant general manager Ron Hextall last year to be the GM someday, but Holmgren said he was not ready to relinquish the job. Holmgren hired Hextall. "He's an excellent resource in our organization," Holmgren said Friday, after the Flyers cleared out their lockers at their Voorhees practice facility.
