He couldn't be patient with Bobrovsky who literally was thrown under the bus by Laviolette in the Buffalo/Boston series' and then got rid of Carter to open up cap space for the most recent sieve, followed 20 minutes later by Richards for apparently a whole number of unverified reasons, including among others, locker room issues. And, near as I can tell, this team is absolutely no further ahead, in fact, it may have regressed. Hoepfully, time will bring about a better fortune but.......
It was a red flag hearing about "locker room issues" in 2011 (when Richards and Carter were still here) because the team was actually winning. I think we finished 2nd place in the East that year.
Last years Flyers team won a lot of games and a playoff series together and so the locker room was obviously happy and close knit. When a team is losing and there's reports about "locker room issues" then that's usually because they're losing LOL. Obviously the team is frustrated, pointing fingers and pissed off at eachother, because they probably feel that they're better than what their record indicates.
Winning creates a great atmosphere and vice versa for losing. But when your team is winning and you still hear about locker room issues, then you know it's not about hockey anymore.
