Peter Laviolette appreciation thread

Without a doubt, this was his best moment as Flyers head coach.

No thanks..

Only appreciation I'll offer up is when he first came in.......after that started seeing some trends I didn't like.

Was going to post this in the other thread but this one is better suited for that.

RIP to the Lavi timeout.

Laviolotte was a decent fit for the roster he inherited, but a poor fit for the one he has now. When you consider that his style seems to have a shelf life, it was time for him to go.

That said, you can make a reasonably compelling argument that of the owner, GM, and coach, he's the least culpable for the team's current predicament.

Good stuff.

And from one person who had trouble embedding youtube videos to the next, just put what comes after "watch?v=" in YT tags.

I'll always remember how magical the 2010 run was. I loved that team.

Good players were constantly brought in and Laviolette did nothing with a solid team the past few years. I can understand there's problems with the roster and that there have been since he was here, but for such a deep team, there's no reason they shouldn't have had more success.

I appreciate that his teams are fun to watch, at least when they're average or better overall. The 2010-2011 teams especially were a blast when they were going good. I remember fans of other teams posting here early in the 2011 season that they expected to see us in the finals. Good times.

when this team was clicking, they were extremely fun to watch, but we haven't seen that in 2 years

Thanks for the 2010 run!

Is Berube going to be head coach for the season or will they hire someone else?

Thanks Lavi! From the day he was hired until the end of 11-12 was probably the most continual fun I have had as a Flyers fan since Lindros left. (apart from 03-04!) Great hockey to watch and teams you could really put your heart and soul behind with no effort whatsoever.

4 very enjoyable years and realistically the last 3 were the best three years in a row in since 94-97... and two more nice shiny banners hanging from the rafters... though not the one we all wanted.

But his natural time here came to an end a year ago.

I appreciate that he destroyed a Coke machine; I prefer Pepsi.

The 2010 run is the highlight of my life as a Flyer fan and resulted in them playing on my birthday for the first time in franchise history, winning with me in attendance (Game 4 vs Chicago). The comeback against Boston, particularly game 7, will be my favourite Flyer moment until they win the Cup. Lavi was a big part of that.

His attack system was fun to watch...when it actually worked

And I give him credit for cleaning up the mess after the Richards and Carter trades and how he formed a competitive squad in no time again...

I still like him, but a move needed to be made. Really wish he could have been more successful the last year and to start this year.

The 2010 run. All that needs to be said.

I would credit that more to Holmgren than Laviolette, but he played a part in it I suppose.

Post-Lavi era begins tomorrow against Florida.

Thanks for the historic comeback against the Bruins in 2010 and that memorable run overall; It was really fun and exciting to watch. Shame it didn't end the way we wanted.

His system was really fun to watch when it worked. I just don't get the lack of adjustment.
