    Good. I really appreciate everything Lavy has done for us, but this needed to happen. The team was getting beat the same exact way every single shift, and needed a shakeup. If this team doesn't change under a new coach, I believe that it's more of a personnel problem and Homer will be next on the chopping block.

    Best of luck to Laviolette in the future, I'm sure if he's put in the right position with the right team he can still succeed.

    Well that was a lot faster than I thought it would take, here's to the Flyers having enough time to turn it around

    Wow. That didn't take long. I figured they would give him at least a couple weeks to sort things out. I have no idea what to expect from Berube.

    Best wishes to Lavy... he was a great replacement for what was there before him and he coached one hell of an offensive team a couple years ago, but things needed to change as the 29 other teams figured out how to beat his system.

    Just wish this was done at the end of last regular season, we could have replaced him with a high quality coach.

    I think Laviolette is a very good coach. The thing I am having trouble understanding is why he so adamantly refused to alter his systems at all once it was clear that they weren't working. He just kept trying the same futile "high offense" systems until the very end. I mean even Boudreau attempted to change to a more defensive system in his final year in Washington. Hopefully Berube doesn't simply employ the same systems that Lavi used. It's hard to predict what he will do, though, considering he doesn't really have much coaching experience whatsoever to look at.

    Not with Berube..but going to give him a chance. However, this roster is still ill-assembled and the next axe should be reserved for Paul Holmgren....

    Also, those canadian fans on main board are unbearable. How did the Leafs fans become so confident over just one summer?

    I hope they don't think Berube is the answer. He's a total cement head.

    Atta boy Homer!

    I appreciate Lavi and everything he has done for the org.

    He should have a ring with us.

    However his system doesn't fit our team anymore. We are no longer the '09/'10 SCF Flyers.

    Should have been done in the offseason. Just another strike against Holmgren and he walks by unscathed.

    You are praising Holmgren?

    We now have Berube as coach when we could have had a better coach from the ones available in the offseason. Moreover, this team still has issues..they don't have enough quick players. Not sure how Berube of all people is going to figure out what to do with this squad....

    I can't imagine Homer has much breathing room.

    Chip Kelly is now the longest tenured head coach in Philly major pro sports.

    Thanks for the memories, Lavy. It was time for a change.
     
  20. Get Holmgren out of here now too.

    Well there goes all of the optimism, now the team sucks, the coach got fired, if the replacement doesn't work, the GM will get fired.

    Hey, when do people start blaming the players for being ******?

    Absolutely done too late.. No idea why he wasn't given a dirt nap after last seasons abomination. Then the new coach woulda had the whole off-season and training camp to prepare/implement his system.

    But better late than never.

    Did anyone else get the ESPN alert on their phone saying "NHL - Flyers fire Peter Laviolette after 0-3-0 start -- source; In 5th season with 1 playoff appearance". I literally shake my head every time ESPN tried to cover anything to do with hockey. I hope to the hockey gods that they meant Stanley Cup Final appearance and not Playoff appearance. Either way, still morons.

    Cant have the record they have had so far and in preseason and be the flyers head coach. They will make the playoffs this year or heads will roll, that is one of the things that I love about the flyers is every year they try and win. I mean if you've followedthis team at all you know that any screw ups will not be tolerated the year after missing the playoffs.

    Best of luck to Lavi, will miss the JAM. Berube vs Bylsma should be awfully interesting.
