For the people saying "Why after 3 games but not last season" he answered that. He said he wanted him to have a chance with a full training camp, and nothing changed.

Snider got snippy when someone asked him why he has another Flyers guy in there. It's been the same thing for 38 years, that you haven't won a Cup. Snider: "We don't need a fresh prespective."

Did he really say they don't need a fresh perspective? I'm pretty sure that's the first sign they need a fresh perspective.

For this to happen so soon, I think there had to be problems in the locker room, too. Leadership must have also been behind the move IMO

What a ****ing circus.

And Snider is delusional. I respect him for what he's done, but he's surrounded by too many yes men.

Snider wasn't saying that in a general sense though, it was in response to a pathetic question that (paraphrasing) "Isn't it time to move away from a culture of not having won a cup in 38 years that Berube is a part of and get a fresh perspective?"

It was a ridiculous question - it's not like every coach they've had in the past 38 years came from within the organization, not even close. They've had plenty of "fresh perspectives" in the past, including Laviolette.

I think they do, but it's not like bringing in an outside voice as coach guarantees a Cup. See Hitchcock and Laviolette.

Why didn't they look outside the system, Larry Robinson comes to mind as an assistant who should be a head

Yeah he did, he said it cause he was pissed and was asked like three times in a row "why not get a fresh perspective" by going outside of the organization.

What I don't really understand is what these people think will change by hiring a coach who's never been in the organization. Hockey is hockey and regardless of what people like to think the Flyers aren't playing old school hockey. They have a legit roster that was under performing, why do they necessarily need to get an outside coach to get them to perform?

I don't think that's really what he meant. He was just angry and spitting out words. I think his point was that the franchise has always been about winning and that's the bottom line.

Although I wasn't really a fan of it a Patrick Roy like blowup from Chief in his first game would be epic.

I agree. But the quote sounds bad on its own.
