Gotta ask: Has Lavy worn them out?

Are Flyers out of gas from Lavy's "all out" physical style?

I didn't think much of Richards and some other players calling out Lavy on the PP .....but now I'm starting to wonder if it's a bit of a sign they are not buying into him completely....that's going to be something to watch if this horrid losing streak continues. This one took the cake as they totally packed their bags against the Rags...

It's possible, but these guys are professional athletes, they should be able to handle it.

It's possible.


The other part of being worn out is the wear and tear they took last season, which is something no one wants to talk about.

possible certainly, but I'm curious if this flu bug has lingered longer and to more people than just a few of them here and there. No excuse especially for pros, and they've bagged games in lately, but catching that can set you back a few weeks physically - even if you are paid to stay in shape.

Doubtful, just seems like a rough patch. I mean, the Flyers really haven't had anything to play for lately. But now after being embarrassed today, and having Eastern Conference teams closing in, we'll see if they snap out of the funk.

A little pride in wearing that P on the jersey would be nice. I know what you mean here, but sooner or later this team has to play like men and turn it around. The East was giftwrapped and now the Atlantic is in question. The way they're being beaten is very concerning, because it looks like an awful lot more than lack of effort or urgency.

Bring back Stevens!

10 game losing streaks were every day life during his days, now we're in a 4 game losing streak and sounds like we should forfeit the season and send Laviolette in a bag to Siberia.

Dunno, the Bruins in 08-09 had that winning streak from November through December and then played ho-hum in february and March, it happens. I still think the Flyers come out of the east again this year.

Seems likely. This is essentially the same bunch that has been wildly out of shape the past few years, so they probably failed to work out properly again this summer.

For what its worth the same thing happened here in Carolina. IMO he has a very short shelflife with players. His full throttle coaching style simply isnt sustainable.

The Hawks had a dead period last year around this time and it all turned out just fine. You guys will be ok.

Yeah they did, they lost 9 out of 15 in March. There were two, three game losing streaks in that span. The worst loss being to the Jackets, 8-3

Doesn't help any after getting fisted 7-0.

The last four Stanley Cup winners have had down stretches between late January and March, actually. After starting off so well for so long, teams wear down a little bit in the days before the home stretch.

Unfortunately, a four game losing streak here means the leadership needs to be executed.

He seems to be a very passionate person and I hope he realizes he sometimes has to turn it down a notch. I think he has because he seems to know when to yell at them and when not to. He's given them the entire day off tomorrow so hopefully they'll be able to re-set.

No kidding! With all the freaking out here it actually feels like a lot more than 4 games.

Getting some goals on the PP would help. Its deflating emotionally and physically to not get rewarded after drawing a call from solid play.

The PP is where this really stands out. Nobody moves at all. It's like they think it's a chance to catch a breather.

How big a factor do you think not having Gagne on the pp this year?
