NEWS UPDATE #Flyers have relieved Joe Paterson as head coach of Adirondack Phantoms, their AHL affiliate FULL RELEASE

Quote:
The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have relieved Joe Paterson of his duties as head coach of their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

No successor has been named at this time.

“As an organization, we feel the Phantoms need a new voice moving forward,” Holmgren said. “We would like to thank Joe for his hard work and service to the Phantoms over the past season and a half, but we feel a new direction is needed at this time.”
I don't understand it really, Homer and Lavy both praised him for his great work with the players during the year.

  • Paterson was very good at being the face of the team throughout the year and handling public relations duties. Brought that a long way.
  • To say move will be hugely unpopular in Glens Falls, where Paterson is a full-time resident, is an understatement.

now that is odd, far as i always heard/read they thought Joe was following the Flyers build/play style perfectly..

wonder if Lavi's offense first methodology is gunna change this upcoming season to, so they are gunna bring in a Defensive speciality coach for the Phantoms.

Is it possible they want a defensive specialist coach at the AHL level so when guys come into the NHL they already have a strong defensive background?

I don't post much but this really surprised me. I thought Paterson was an unsung hero this year. With all the injuries, the callups all seemed well prepared and some got thrown into a lot of ice time including special teams.

Wow... as someone who watched the Phantoms, this is a terrible move. Just look at his roster. Half nondrafted guys, half old over the hill players. He got them to produce (the best non-drafted guys can do) and put players where they belonged.

Terrible move. Get ready for Paddock to come back

There simply has to be something behind the scene here. It really is hard to rationalize what's going on here.

I wonder if Paterson participated in that scathing article about the Phantoms being neglected?

Flabbergasted by this move. In a little over a season and a half, Paterson took over a team that was badly mismanaged by the previous coach and got everyone back on track. He made the team competitive and players were responding. Why Holmgren would relieve him of his duties now is especially head scratching.

Don't see Lappy as a full-time coach.

Wow I'm shocked. I thought he was doing a great job developing players. There really wasn't a single callup (well maybe Marshall) that looked out of place in the NHL.

Even if he did, firing him is only proving the point

Maybe the team has found a replacement for Lavi and need a place to keep him until Lavi's time has come.

Isn't Riley Cote an assistant down on the farm? I really hope they don't go that way
