(Philadelphia, PA, November 1, 2006) - The following is a statement from Philadelphia Flyers Chairman Ed Snider regarding Colin Campbell being asked about the Flyers' general manager position:
"Colin Campbell and I have been friends for a very long time and we both have worked closely together on the NHL's competition committee. When Bob Clarke announced his resignation on October 22, I contacted Colin and we had a discussion about the general manager position.
"Colin recently contacted me to inform me that he appreciated our conversation, but at this time he did not want to be a candidate for the position. Paul Holmgren will continue to be the interim general manager. There will be no other statements concerning this issue."
