The guys that were run out of town were done in by others than Laviolette. Richards and Carter pissed some people off in management and they were dealt.
This dust up between Bryz and Laviolette is a different mess. After last season, Bryz complained that he didn't get enough work. This year he says that he was overworked. That's not on Lavy. Bryz is a major problem and it will get worse going forward since Mason is beating him out of the goalie job. Does anyone want Bryz as a back up? The best thing for the Flyers to do is amnesty his tail out of here and sign/obtain another goalie (Ericksson?) to share the job with Mason.
I do hold Laviolette for messing up this season. His style of play does not fit this squad and he knew that after the Devils' PO series last season. Worst of all it exposes his defensemen to too much physical damage at the hands of other teams hard forechecking. Its not accident that the defensive corps is broken down by the end of a season.
