Hey Ryan, it's Chuck, I have something very important to tell you, please give me a call back when you get a chance.
Well, that's awkward.
After a busy offseason already, Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher pulled off yet another trade today (see story) and the piece heading out of Philly may legitimately not know about the deal. Looks like, from his tweet, that Ryan Hartman is on vacation.
Don't worry, Flyers fans are trying to help in any way they can to let him know.

Welp....Ur a Star Now...Wonder if you know that yet.... Welcome to Big D!— Tha DBZ (@ddoodlebrown) June 24, 2019
If you recall, Hartman was the return for Wayne Simmonds last year before the trade deadline, so essentially, this deal for Tyler Pitlick is a straight swap with Simmer.
I don't think I've ever seen anything like this, it's pretty funny. You wonder if Hartman knew it was coming. If not, enjoy the lake and wishing you all the best next season.
