If the Flyers fail to reach the playoffs this year, I agree he deserves to be fired, but it is hard for me to argue against the actual record of the team under his watch.
Those who follow ..never come in first. Holmgren to me is bold when he wants to be and needs to be but his decisions are not well thought out or longitudinal. He seems to be more reactionary than proactive. He dithers a bit too much. Having said this I do believe Snider meddles too much and inhibits his decision making but he needs to challenge his owner more and empower himself if he feels he is being overridden too much. Otherwise..step down....this may happen.
