Many Flyer fans waiting for the shoe to drop in Filly. Any predictions?  Seems as if fans are seriously questioning their collective "over rating" of their players. Not that I wallow in their misery, but, i love it (even though we have issues of our own).  i think Lavi can't get fired quick enough.  They're calling for Holmgrens head as well. 

Fans are saying they need a different "voice"in the room. Berube? Maybe there's a thorough housecleaning in order?

well to be honest im pretty certain every single fan base are over rating their own players. We do it too.

 

But to stay on the subject... i kinda hope they are not getting fired, cause then they might be better after... like the Rangers without Torts will be better and MTL with Bergevin making decisions same thing etc etc

I am really surprised Lavi has been the coach this long in Philly. I just don't think he is a good coach.

It's not Lavi's fault I don't think - he has to work with what he's dealt. But he may be a casualty nonetheless. Holmgren is the one that should go, he's made some pretty sh!t decisions. Though it's fun to watch it all blow up over there.

Flyers have fired Peter Laviolette, per a source. Replacing him with Craig Berube. Press conference at 11am.

 

Sarah Baicker @sbaickerCSN 1m

Ohhhhh boy. Flyers press conference at 11 a.m.

 

Dan Rosen @drosennhl 1m

Flyers have called a press conference for 11 a.m. Peter Luukko and Paul Holmgren will be in attendance. That's all the press release says.

If anything Holmgren should be fired. I have no idea how ownership sticks by this guy with the payroll he accumulates and the money he has cost them through the amnesty clause.

vadvlfan is Paul Holmgren?  Wouldn't've guessed that. 

 

I like Laviolette and hope he can go to the Western Conference for a change.

Laviolette is a great coach. Holmgren's been the one tinkering with Laviolette's roster in nothing but negative ways. Any good aspects of the Flyers' game that Laviolette can get out of them, Holmgren trades away or doesn't help complement them. He should've seen the ax way earlier than Laviolette.

What does Holmgren expect when you trade 2 stars in their primes and replace them with kids who havent taken the next step yet (except Voracek)? Add to the fact their d is trash. Instead of firing the architect, you fire the carpenter for being given lousy tools.

Right, cause firing your coach 3 games into the season is a great way to portray yourself as an organization.  Maybe the ownership/Homer should start showing up to practices and actually observe the coaching staff and try to see if the coaching is really the problem. I.E. players not responding, players looking unhappy, players obviously not understanding, not gelling as a unit.  Yeah, I know, showing up to a practice or two may not give a sense of the real problem at hand, but come on, THREE games in and Lavi is most likely out the door.
