So this is Berube's 12th game. What do people think of the coaching so far?

His lineup decisions have been enough for me to start to dislike him. He doesn't seem like he's having much success motivating the players to actually play either.

The more things change, the more they stay the same with the Flyers. We really need that fresh perspective Snider is so against IMO.

As much as this team sucks, going to watch hockey games being played live is always fun. But they always lose when they play the Devils and I'm there, but Hedberg was in net each time they played, first time I actually get to see Brodeur.... hopefully we steal a victory...

But really, the problem is this: Why dress Mez, someone who has played measurably worse, for Schenn, just to send a message to the unscratchable players to shape up? Its silly season here in Philadelphia.
Every season is silly season in Philly.

Better then with Laviolette, but his lineup decisions are atrocious and baffling. Can't really fault him for the teams performance as a whole though since Holmgren never gave him a training camp or off season to work things out and into the lineup. Plus he's the one who has constructed the roster as is.

I agree Holmgren's team management is the bigger issue right now, but I'm not sure Berube is doing the right things to help right the ship.

These lineup changes are awful. Same issue as with Lavi, giving vets undeserved ice time over the young guys who would benefit much much more from playing.

And the line combinations.. changing them every game isn't going to help trigger the chemistry that's missing. I wish he would keep the same lines and let them develop through this bad streak.

Schenn's still bouncing between wing and center, G's got new linemates every game. Our 4th line is atrocious most nights because for whatever reason we need Rosehill AND Rinaldo at the same time. 1st powerplay unit keeps changing.

Bleh. More of the same.

Tonight is the night for Giroux to have a multi point game and Mez to score a goal. Or it could be a complete disaster, I am nervous.

It generally seems to take about 2 months for coaches to really have an impact.

That being said his lineup decisions suggest he needs a CT scan, very very soon.

Like I said, his lineup decisions are atrocious and baffling. No matter what it's hard to get a good grip on Berube and how much of it is his fault because of Holmgren.

Giving vets undeserved ice-time happens a lot with most teams in this league. I also can't fault him for line juggling. Pretty much every coach does that when they can't figure out their teams struggles. No matter the line combinations out offense is inept it seems anyhow.

Seems like Kevin Lowe is scouting Boston/Florida tonight. He is probably just scouting for Team Canada though. If he isn't, Edmonton has a lot of coals in the fire...

Jagr winter classics jersey sighting


Also, why do they keep starting Emery? A few punches to the back of the head and one stupidly lucky shutout get you this?

I'm on board with the disgust of the schenn and gus scratches... I don't see the swaying logic to do this, even with a good argument to back it up, there are defensemen that deserved to be scratched instead.
