Laviolette was absolutely dreadful in the playoffs. He badly mishandled the goaltending situation, was unable to determine which match ups were best for the Flyers and failed to get them on the ice at crucial moments (even at home) and made downright puzzling lineup decisions. He definitely deserves his fair share of the blame for how the season ended.

With that being said, I don't think he deserves to be fired and I don't think he will be fired. He's still a pretty good coach, and the process of firing him and finding a new coach is a risky proposition. Even if they do fire him, the chances of finding someone better are murky at best.
