The bigger discussion should be what will Holmgren's next move be?

The flyers are only 2 points up on being out of the playoffs. The next four games are against teams below them in the islanders (x2), hurricanes and blue jackets. After that the schedule turns brutal with the bruins, redwings, at the ducks, kings, sharks, and then home to Avalanche. They finish off with Calgary before the Olympic break. With that schedule I think it is very likely they will be out of a playoff spot come the Olympic break. They then play only 3 games before the official trade deadline on March 5 against the Sharks, rangers and then Capitals.

I think it is very likely Holmgren will be fired, or change positions ala Clarke, if the flyers don't make the playoffs for the 2nd year running. Does he try to save his job and risk the future of the club or sit tight and hope they make the playoffs?
