    Are we sure they won't turn around and just promote Lappy? Well liked guy, been with a team long time, payed his dues, great attitude and so on.

    He quite possibly might be the dumbest guy in the NHL behind a bench or in the front office which is really saying something.

    There is only one way to get rid of Hakstol.

    How did they defeat the demon, He Who Walks Behind the Rows, from Children of the Corn? They burned his corn field down.

    I mean, on the main boards he was voted the third worst coach in the league. I like to imagine if they watched him as often as we did he would be even lower.

    We need a plot worthy of a Godfather climax to get rid of all these ****stains. I wonder if Fredo, AKA Lappy likes boat rides...

    Hak should have been fired and replaced by Gallant last season. Too late now.

    Ill take anyone over this burlap scarecrow though at this point.

    Gord Murphy can play the role of Moe Green.

    I love when Hakstol spends third periods protecting the other team’s leads only to put pressure on for a goal in the last few minutes. :laugh:

    Hak really needs to ****ing go. The fact that about 28% of our games so far end in shutouts is not ****ing acceptable. A competent coach would also be able to get more out of the lines that aren't the first as well. His flailing and throwing together random pairings, as well as sitting the better chance-makers on the team, of the third period tonight shows why he should not be an NHL coach. He. Is. AWFUL. He needs to go and ****ing now.

    I'm getting close to the point where I'm thinking Hakstol is only a symptom. Get rid of Hakstol, another Hakstol will take his place.

    Nothing has indicated that Hakstol's flaws and wayward philosophies are not shared by Hextall. I'm not getting out the pitchforks and torches yet because I'm still big picture and rational (enough) about everything and all the good work doesn't get voided; we're not too far gone to change course. But they sure seem to be two peas in a pod: one is just the architect of this team's vision, the other the helmsman. Sure, he's not a good coach, but what scare me the most are the organizational shortcomings complicit in every decision he makes.

    His coaching hires to this point haven’t been that good.

    Dave Hakstol (Flyers HC)
    Gord Murphy (Flyers AC)
    Kris Knoblauch (Flyers AC)
    Kim Dillabaugh (Flyers GC)

    Scott Gordon (Phantoms HC)
    Kerry Huffman (Phantoms AC)
    Brady Robinson (Phantoms GC)

    Lappy was a holdover AC with the Flyers that is still here. Cote was an AC with the Phantoms until he got fired after last year.

    Knoblauch is really the only guy who legitimately might be head coach one day of all those guys. The rest are all pretty much lifers.

    Mid season is always difficult to find a good replament from outside the organization.

    Paul MacLean from Off what is he doing now?

    Who could take over for Hak that has NFL exp ?

    There has to be a change in something here. The lineup hasn't been consistent save the 1st line.

    Ffs someone do something.

    I mean, it could actually be a good idea to fire Hakstok and promote Gordon. The latter will surely stink the joint out from now until the end of the season, giving Hexy no choice but to fire him, and then we would be rid of both of them. Hexy could hire someone (anyone) to replace Gordo and let Knob take over down in LV, with the idea that he is the next in line, in a year or two.
