You know what's crazy...go into the Rangers thread. They seriously are having the exact same discussions as us. Pretty crazy how when things aren't going well, the finger gets pointed to the same things.

Discounting stats is usually just a way of maintaining a belief despite having no evidence to support it and, often, plenty of evidence against it.
Because stats do not tell the entire story. They often lack context.

Based on your past posts and this current post, I'll keep it in mind never to take you seriously. I appreciate your honesty. It's one thing to admit that you change your mind on subjects as your opinions evolve (and thus look hypocritical from time to time), but it's another to just flaunt that you're unreliable and proud of it and possibly just trolling.

If this **** continues, I'm thinking 5 games and he should be released.

No reason this team should be losing. This is not the 06 Flyers

I think its time to start looking to can this guy. He is billed as some offensive genius but since the New Jersey series last year this team got exposed. Keep them to the perimeter. All teams do is keep us to the perimeter. That's why they get no scoring chances and when it goes to the point collapse because no defenseman on the damn team can ****ing shoot or get a shot through.

It's getting worse every night. Thanks for everything Pete but you're fired. This team would be absolutely no worse off if they had no coaching at all.

If we lose tomorrow, and in embarrassing fashion, Lavy I think is gone. The only coach I can think of that can take over is probably Terry Murray.

Based on holmgrens comments I think this is the case

Team doesn't seem to want to battle for him.......his time is quickly expiring. No surprise and neither is this season although the injuries have just really killed the depth of this team but we should have more prospects to fill in some holes.

Flyers need to win the next couple of games and gain some momentum. Caps played the night before and once again the Flyers came out slow and let the Caps gain confidence. Really no excuse for that and it's the same crap over and over with this team no matter the personnel.....no sense of urgency to start and at times within the game.

John Paddock or maybe even homer himself?

Wasn't Paddock fired and then got put up to Assistant GM or something?

Or was that sarcastic?

I'm wondering if Lavy already lost the team, and they just aren't interested in his system anymore or playing for him, I mean it looks like it on the ice, you can't tell me the entire top 6 and defensive pairings are all having ****** years at the same time, just seems like there's more to it than we know, I think Paddock gets the job if they fire Lavy, maybe Murray is an outside shot too but something has to give, this team is way way too talented to be performing they way they are

Would I fire laviolette? Probably not. He seems like a nice guy, and I'm not too good with confrontation...

This. And Lavy was angrier then I've ever seen him, you have to think its cause he knows they're playing for his job at this point. You could just see the disappointment on Homer's face. If the flyers don't string several wins together starting tomorrow I think he's done. It's a shame but I actually wanted to see a coaching change sooner. Don't get me wrong I like the guy and I think he's a hell of a coach but the system needs to change to accommodate our players abilities.

Just watch out if they inexplicably make you dress up like a Coke machine.

Reminds me of the comments made by the National Media about Andy Reid Can't wait to see that guy attempt to turn around the KC Chiefs... GOOD LUCK.

If someone wants Lavy and his 3 year max system, then they can be my guest. I'd never want a guy to coach my team who cannot seem to keep a job or keep his team effective for more than 3 years after he takes over.
