Or the fact that Holmgren shipped two of the best defensive forwards on the team and relied on Giroux and Briere to establish a two-way game?
Makes me sick how much some Philadelphia fans abandon their teams at the drop of a hat. No wonder the Sixers have no fan base. If the Flyers were as bad as the Oilers have been for two decades, we would have equal attendance to the Coyotes.
Be careful what you wish for. ASIAK there are not very many good replacements for Laviolette out there.
Laviolette has beaten the Rangers once in over two full caender years, and that was off of a back to back for the Rangers when the flyers had off. Thats with two different lineups over 3 seasons and the games have been played almost exactly every time. Thats enough for me to want him fired. He has won 1 time in the last 7 against the devils. Next year divisions games will be even more important.
