Luukko: Holmgren's job safe, even if no playoffs

An underachieving season has not put Paul Holmgren's job in jeopardy.

Holmgren will remain the Flyers' general manager even if they continue to stumble and do not make the playoffs, Peter Luukko said yesterday.

Luukko is president of Comcast-Spectacor, the Flyers' parent company.

"He is safe," Luukko said. "Paul's doing a great job."

There has been speculation that if the Flyers, who have lost six of their last seven games and are seventh in the Eastern Conference, do not win a playoff berth, Holmgren will be dismissed.

That won't happen, said Luukko, whose team has been stalled by injuries to goalies Ray Emery and Michael Leighton and to its leading scorer, Jeff Carter.

"When we're playing consistently, we're very good and have as good a shot as anybody," Luukko said, referring to the Flyers' playoff chances.

Luukko said it was "dangerous" to overreact when things weren't going well.
Unbe****inglievable..He's doing a "great job"? And he mentions consistency? The only thing consistent about this team has been it's inconsistency.

It's a ****ing embarrassment to have the team president talking like this.
