They cut ties with Eriksson because the Flyers didn't like how he was progressing. At least thats what I thought remember reading. I thought that is the reason they went with Hovinen. A decision that didnt go well at all. I am just wondering who it was that recommended to Holmgren to cut ties with Eriksson.
I know there rumors he didn't want go the AHL route as a way of getting to the NHL but i think he was still young enough where you could of talked him down off that stance.
