thats bs. with their current roster there is no reason they should only have 13 pts 15 games into the season. sure they don't have a #1 d-man and thats a hole but the flyers didn't have one for years and they still made it work to an extent. we all know the teams on ice performance is not indicative of what they are capable of. heck we've seen them play great hockey for short periods of time. the fact that they keep making the same mistakes, can't hold a lead, can't manage to win a game when tied after two or even show up ready to play like ever is not the GMs fault.
and i would argue it does make sense to fire a coach in a shortened season IF you have the right person for the job lined-up. They could start putting things into place now to try and make a playoff push and if they fall short they'll just be that much more ready for the following season (in terms of knowing the system/playing style).
