Lavy doesn't change his tactics, he just shakes up lines or pulls his goaltender. If that is the best he has to offer when things go wrong, it's time to go.

I said earlier that Briere was -3 with 10 minutes of ice time. He then gets rewarded with 7 more minutes!!! Disgusting!!!

I say to the masses...are we better on paper than Toronto, MTL, Carolina, Ottawa??? If we are...then it is on the coach to get the players to perform.

Hell...we are now 2 games under .500 We join:
Columbus
Colorado
Florida
Tampa
Buffalo
as the only teams 2 games under or worse.

Pens switched to neutral zone clogging after the 1st, and, as usual, in this situation our coach had no answer.

add the lowly Edmonton Oilers to that list.

Even the Isles are better than us.

By this point, any NHL coach that isn't aware of this massive weakness on Lavi's part is probably watching zero NHL games outside of his own team.

When is this team going to be able to string 3 wins in a row?

Gee I wonder if the Flyers taking the foot off the attack attack Lavi gas pedal was the result of the neutral zone clog

Probably one of the better tactics for the neutral zone clog is to gain the red line and dump and chase. Lavy didn't even get them to do that.

In his presser he is saying they stopped skating and putting the puck behind them....so he's saying it was players not executing. They went to sleep in the 2nd.....according to him. Ok why are they sleeping on ya?

Also mentions lack of consistency....well duh!

He didn't change his system vs Boston in the playoffs and vs NJ in the playoffs after that. If he doesn't change then then why would he now? A guy with his attitude and his idea that he is always right and nothing should get changed cannot settle well with the players. Unless they want to clean house again and trade Giroux like they did Richards/Carter last time??

They picked the coach over the players once, and it won't happen again.

He looked like a deer in headlights...he seems resigned...no fire.

I thought Hartnell earlier trying to defend him a bit was actually a red flag. Both him and G however both said they don't know why they let up as a team and they know what they have to do and Lavy told them what they have to do. Ok once again..why don't you feel like doing it and listening to him? Sounds like you don't have total buy in hence the inconsistency....

I said it as I was checking the score. After it was 4-1, they should have done their best NY Rangers impression and shut the game down.

I like Lavy and think he is a good coach, but it is probably time. The Flyers need a new coach, but the question is who? I don't think Ruff is the answer. I would not want Torts if he gets released by the NYR. I would like a guy like Babcock who runs a puck possession system. I wonder if there is a chance Detroit gets rid of him, highly doubt it.

Edit: I also wouldn't mind seeing a new GM being brought in. I feel like Homer shouldn't get off either. He is the one who gets the players, trades, signs, and manages the cap situation. All those trading away of draft picks for rentals and giving guys long contracts with NTCs/NMCs has helped create this situation where we have no light down in the system.

No, it will be Terry Murray or John Paddock as the interim coach.
