I posted parts of it earlier elsewhere but I'll try to recapture it.

Try these, the bottom one is more detailed:

Snider didn’t mince his words about how utterly disappointed he is with the product on the ice and vowed there would be changes this offseason.

He gave general manager Paul Holmgren a vote of confidence, but when asked about coach Peter Laviolette, he deferred to Holmgren.

“I don't want to talk about anything about when the season ends, who's safe and who isn't safe,” Snider replied. “These are decisions Paul Holmgren is going to have to make, not me.”

Said Holmgren: “I don’t even think about that stuff. After the season, everything gets evaluated and we go from there. Our coaches -- nobody is happy with the position we are in. … It’s difficult to talk about right now. I think the coaches do a good job.”

Snider said when the lockout ended he thought this squad was a playoff team capable of a high seed.

“We came into the season with high expectations, and it just seems like everything that could go wrong has gone wrong,” Snider said. “But the good teams overcome that and we've got to find a way to regroup, and I guarantee you we'll be a heck of a lot better.”

PHILADELPHIA - Just after pulling the cover off a piece of the precious past today, Flyers chairman Ed Snider painfully pondered the present state of his team.

Snider's initial reaction to a season that is all but mathematically over and soon to be forgotten about is that his general manager, Paul Holmgren, will have every chance to change that in the offseason.

As is often the case, Snider said he plans to meet with his management team at season's end to evaluate the club from top to bottom. This year's meeting promises to have a bit of sharper edge to it.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren made a trade on Saturday to add a veteran defenseman. After the first period of the Flyers-Bruins game, Holmgren discussed his move, the upcoming trade deadline and comments made earlier Saturday by team chairman Ed Snider, who says Holmgren’s job is safe and everything else will be evaluated after the season. Here’s what Holmgren had to say:


Flyers chairman Ed Snider attended a ceremony Saturday morning in which a Broad Street Bullies statue was unveiled across the parking lot from Wells Fargo Center outside XFinity Live. Afterward, Snider talked to reporters about the Flyers’ down season, general manager Paul Holmgren and head coach Peter Laviolette’s job security, the Ilya Bryzgalov signing and more. Here is his interview:
