I'm not even saying they shouldn't fire him. Eventually, all coaches lose their effectiveness, let alone an extremely intense individual like Laviolette.
Yeah it may be Homers fault that they don't have the players on defense to be legitimate contenders but to be about half way through the season and not even be at 500 is ridiculous. Have have a good enough team make the playoffs. It's the coaches job to get them playing well enough to get there. Who ever said I don't blame Paul? He absolutely deserves some of the blame but not for the team being under 500. That is just ridiculous
Lavy's system has a very short shelf life as Psuhockey put it, we've seen evidence of that with every team he has coached. That time has passed for Laviolette and the Flyers imo. Not to mention when he actually won he had a goalie on a hot streak (in other words it wasn't just the system but the incredible play of their goaltender that got them a cup).
