Both Holmer and Lavy should have been fired. Best wishes Lavy, good person, his system was not working anymore.

Well let's see how does first before passing judgements based off his playing days.

I don't think it will make too much of a difference that this was done now and not a few months ago. There are arguments either way as to whether or not he should have been given a chance to get out of the gates this season, and while I lean towards the off-season as being a better time myself, we know that mid-season coach changes have not hindered teams from going all the way.

I think the talent is there to make the playoffs, but it won't happen unless the breakout is fixed IMO, whether through system or personnel (a Pronger clone would do nicely).

Berube was the last coach to get the phantoms in the playoffs so that's something.

I hope he does well I'm just not confident. I'm basing my opinion of him off his playing days and after a few personal encounters of him behaving like a complete dick on the golf course.

I just noticed that. EPSN....

I agree it was done too late.

I'll give benefit of the doubt as last year was a lock-out season, which tends to be chaotic as is.

I'm glad he made the decision now instead of later when we are 0-10/1-9.

Honestly Berube can't be any worse.

I'll hold out judgment until I see what Craig has.

So... will the outcome here be similar to:

A) Hitchcock fired and team continues to have the worst season ever.

B) Stevens fired and team goes on to a SCF appearance.

Honestly, with the team currently in place, I cannot see a repeat of 2006-07. Hopefully this team can wake up after seeing their coach get the axe and implement a system that the rest of the league doesn't have a flawless blueprint against.

If the Flyers miss the playoff by 6 points, it's all on Holmgren.

I would imagine Berube is not exactly an X and O's coach? I have no clue and maybe neither do the players? One thing for sure is that if he has to kick some butt all over the ice and get these guys to get back to basics...he can back it up. I guess we'll see what his style is....I just worry he doesn't have the roster to do much although if they just tighten up their game they should do better but I hope it's not the boring and uninspired hockey we've been witnessing. I just worry that Berube is more of a motivational type coach than somebody who can figure out a plan with this roster to be successful. Last thing we need is a Barber type...

If they miss the playoffs on a tie-breaker he should be fired.

Then again, who would replace him if not Luukko, and what do we know about Luukko's management style/philosophy that is different from Snider?

Probably not much other than Luukko not being as desperate for a cup before Father Time taps him on the shoulder and tells him he's up next. That alone might suffice to fix the team, though.

Agreed.

It would be a major stain to Homer's legacy.

Ian Laperriere and John Paddock expected to assist Berube. Sounds like Kevin McCarthy also let go.

If the flyers miss the playoffs period, Holmgren will be fired.

Does anyone have any idea what kind of system Berube would try to instill within the organization? It's probably all guess work, but I'm curious if somebody has some input on that.

What did he look after on the bench?

Berube was the PK guy, right?

Forget six points, he should be fired today. It's a direct indictment of Holmgren firing a coach 3 games into the season.

Berube was an X and Os guy when he coached the Phantoms. I have to believe that the Berube hiring is just an interim thing and that he won't be the full time head coach. I'm wondering if this means that Kevin McCarthy is going to be shown the door shortly as well and if they do bring in a new coach, will a whole new staff be brought in.....
