As a Ranger fan who sees the Flyers quite a bit, they have good reason to doubt both of those guys. Stevens often seems lost and too emotionless to be a serious head coach. He doesn't even seem to have an actual system in place, to be honest. IMO, the players win in spite of him, not because of him. He is great with young players though, and is miscast as a head coach when he should be an assistant.

While Holmgren has been a good GM for the most part, it will be interesting to see what happens to them if they fail to win the cup within the next couple of years. After all, he did sign Pronger to that extension without checking that it would count the entire duration (don't believe for a second that he really meant it), and in general he has shown little in managing the cap.
