Yup...the omens continue and certainly the Philly press won't make it any easier as Bryz will attest..

Really it's not that surprising...

In case you were wondering, Philadelphia’s longest-tenured coach is Vegas’ odds-on favorite to be the first NHL coach fired this season.

Flyers chairman Ed Snider said last month that Peter Laviolette is not on the hot seat, but the team’s history firing coaches, coupled with a shaky preseason, has the public thinking otherwise.

“Last year was an anomaly,” Snider said on Sept. 13. “He’s been a very good coach for us. He’s been a good coach in this league and we’re just thrilled to have him.”
