I can't bring myself to even peek at that thread. I can only imagine the brilliance.

I agree, give him a chance first before you slap him in the face.

Definitely, I can't really see this team competing hard and not succeeding under any system.

Liked his answers as to what is wrong:

2. Compete level is not good enough.

There is no excuse for this.

As far as Lavy goes, he was a good coach until every other coach figured him out. The talent doesn't match the system. He refused to change.

What is so frustrating is that last year, when all the D went down, they changed their system to a simpler, puck support system - and we went on a winning streak that cost us Seth Jones. If Lavy can win with Schenn-Lauridsen, Gustafsson-Lilja and Konan-Manning as his D pairings, he should have been able to win with the current 6 (as bad as Timonen is playing).

The team clearly just doesn't believe in the Lavy's system any more. We'll see if the Chief can do any better. If not, Homer and Chief are gone, and Hexy will choose a new coach after the season.
This 100%!

Usual suspects... Pronger trade was bad (I don't even know why and by whom it has been brought up), Lavi had it bad that he was fired because of goaltending etc.

I'm very interested to see how things are going to look against Florida.
I imagine it'll still be rather sloppy as they don't have much time to implement but I too am curious.

Should have traded for Schneider before you went out and got Bryz....

I still don't have any problem with it since Snider has been insulting Flyers fans for much too long now. Berube has thick Indian skin so I highly doubt he took any of it to heart at all..if anything people on this board are more sensitive.

Moreover it is insulting to hear management saying they wanted to give Lavi a full training camp to see if things would change..again horrible judgement and foresight on the part of this management! This is why we keep spinning our wheels as an organization. Get some freakin people in here with a longitudinal plan not a management that is constantly being reactive and trying to fix mistake after mistake..so sick of it.

I also have to think Hextall was the one who nixed Murray being the guy.

Laviolette & Hitchcock couldn't be further from the outside organization, that was a retarded question.

Unless things turn around a bit, I would expect more of the same in the offseason. Philly has been free of managerial turnover for a while now.

You can't spend the money the Flyers are spending, not see results, and expect to keep your job.

This team has enough talent in all areas to be successful. All it needs is a coach that will adapt his system to the roster. Hopefully Berube can do that.

As long as the forwards are in visual range of the D when we get possession, it will be an improvement.

Berube said team defense a concern. Doesn't like how Flyers have played without the puck. "We need to compete a lot harder."

While some in the media were focusing on other issues, Berube stated the team's play without the puck and how that needs to improve. Prime opportunity for supplementary questioning was avoided and overlooked. Perhaps that will be discussed during the hours and days to come. There were 1-on-1 interviews following the main presser.

All this firing means is that it should have been done in the off-season.

Well those are all Captain Obvious comments. I'm pretty sure Laviolette would say the same thing.
