Well, what did he say in response?

If that happens Homer might as well resign.

Unless that means just until a replacement is found


Also, it's Garrioch. He's not too good with anything if it's not Sens related

I'll throw another name out...Dave Tippett.

His contract is up this season. There have been articles in Phoenix suggesting ALL their UFA's (including the coach and GM) are leery of signing a deal not knowing where the team will play next season.

hopefully Terry Murray doesn't choke before he gets a NHL job. Preferably not in Philly.
Dave Tippet? I would almost want John Stevens back as head coach before that guy. almost.

How come? All I know about the guy is that everywhere he's been he's made goalies look a lot better than they probably are.

Wouldn't Murray give us a more defensive system?

that is true, however he sucks the life out of offensive minded players. he is the exact opposite of Lavy. Do we have the personel in place for a defensive minded system anyway

Think how bad it is for the team right just to get 5 on 5 goal. Murray would be worse. Yes, I'm serious.

Unless we're serious about getting a high pick next year again. I don't get this Terry Murray business.

I rather have Nolan or the guy from Toronto's farm club.

Do we have the personnel in place for Lavy's system? How many people knew Radim Vrbata would be such an offensive threat? Both he and Whitney put up good numbers under Tippett.

Considereing we as a fanbase have done nothing but complain about the lack of team defense for the past two years, I wouldn't be against a defensive minded coach as long as it's not Murray.

Going full defense is a knee jerk reaction and doesnt really suit the players on this team. Find someone in the middle, like Washington did.

probably not. but that is why this season a good portion of the blame can be placed on Holmgren. his "balls of steel" attitude as some like some like to use around here caused him to miss out on some guys who could of helped out. Once Holmgren struck out on Parise,Suter and Weber the options were pretty thin. Then Jagr and Carle left as well.
We do ***** about the defense and rightly so but going to a completely defensive system is the wrong way to go. As Beef said find a guy "in the middle"

I really don't think the problem is Lavi's coaching as much as it is his refusal to adapt and change his system. This isn't a dump and chase league anymore, and we clearly aren't built for it. To be frank I think any coach who comes here will probably have success just by eliminating the dump and chase routine, and stop with the constant line juggling to try and get something going instead of letting guys develope chemistry.

What is up with people saying to go to a defense first system coach? Do people not remember Murray in his first stint here and Hitchcock? How did that work out? I rather the Flyers keep Lavi then bring in a guy like Murray.

I am all for getting a new coach, but it should be a moderate coach who gets players to play both offense and defense, not be heavily toward one zone. I would love a puck possession coach like Babcock.

The problem is the coach really has to kinda fit the players we have, ie an Offensive Oriented Coach IMO. I think flipping the switch and doing a 180 could really be catastrophic to the whole team, I mean I could see them considering blowing it up yet again

What, people around here hate Hitchcock now too? That 2004 team was one of my favorites.

Both of those guys coached two of the best Flyers teams in last 20 years. It's hard to knock them for that.

That said I don't want Murray now. I would want a more balanced coach.
