Flyers shuffle assistants

The Flyers are planning an afternoon news conference Wednesday to announce that former assistant coach Craig Berube will return as head coach of the Phantoms and Joey Mullen will take his place on the Flyers' bench.

Joining Mullen will be new assistant Jack McIhargey, a former Flyers defenseman and more recently a scout for the Vancouver Canucks.

Kjell Samuelsson, who took over as Phantoms head coach early last season, will become Berube's assistant again and be responsible for the team's defensemen.

A new addition to the mix will be former Phantoms goalie Neil Little, who will be the new goalie coach.

I really like the addition of Joey Mullen to the bench. Hopefully Jack McIlhargey can bring some snarl to our young defenders' games.

The good news is that Berube will no longer be running our powerplay. I like this already.

He'll also bring back the toughness to the Phantoms. I heard Kjell was pussifying the team and we can't have that.

Well, the PP was abysmal so hopefully a change of philosophy and ideology will help. Jack's back? Here is a bio from Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_McIlhargey

Jack McIlhargey, was a key member of the Vancouver Canucks coaching staff and organization over the past 18 years and was a player between 1977 and 1980. Before being named Canucks Assistant Coach on June 18, 1999, McIlhargey spent eight seasons as Head Coach of Vancouver's top minor league affiliate in Milwaukee, Hamilton and Syracuse. He was the first Head Coach in the history of the Syracuse Crunch franchise. In 1999, McIlhargey was voted one of the 30 All-Time Greatest Canucks. On June 22, 2006, he was fired by new head coach Alain Vigneault from his post as assistant coach of the Canucks. On September 9th, it was announced that McIlhargey would being working as a pro scout for the Vancouver Canucks.

Originally hired by the club as Special Assistant to the General Manager in the fall of 1984, McIlhargey was responsible for establishing the Canucks Alumni Association and a number of scouting assignments. He moved into coaching only three months later and spent the next seven years as an Assistant Coach to Harry Neale, Tom Watt, Bob McCammon and Pat Quinn.

Murray was in charge of the defense and the penalty kill. He was notr in charge of the abysmal power play we had last year.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. That was just the quote from Moran.

This is a bit odd. Mullen came on to help Samuelsson, with no coaching experience, asked specifically by Kjell, now Mullen gets the big promotion and the two guys ahead of him on the pecking order are moved back.

Maybe it will help, maybe he did something on the Phantoms that Holmgren liked. He scored 500 goals, so I'm sure he knows something about a power play.

I doubt the Phantoms will suck next year and even if they did, I'd rather we have some toughness for the legit prospects there, rather than a bunch of AHL journeymen/future journeymen.

I'd rather see guys like Cabana, Cote, and Pisellini play than Eric Meloche.

Mullen was an assistant coach for the Penguins from 00-01 to the beginning 05-06. For the rest of the 05-06 season he was the head coach for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Maybe he's here to show us the way to Stamkos and Tavares.

I just want to see the Phantoms field a good respectable club with good prospects, not a team full of vets and other guys who cant cut the NHL. it would be nice for once.

New goalie coach. About ****ing time!

Now all we need is a new trainer in for McCrossin so we dont have 645 groin injuries and 283 re-injuries per season.

Vets/journeymen come in handy as reliable experienced fill ins during emergency injuries and suspensions as limited ice time fill ins.
They name this role the Peter White job.

i know Berube was supposedly runnign the pp but i dont buy it completely. Stevens without a doubt imo had to have major impact since his a** is on the line and is his responsibility. They need a little more experience behind the bench but dont know much about mullen except like previously stated, he wa sont he pens coaching staff when they sucked and from a far doesn't seem liek he had much impact. Glad Berube gets to refine his game further. they must like him a lot since the phantomswillbe a young team next year.

Wonder who decided these moves? Stevens or Homlgren?

well also the vet waiver in the AHL is gone so you can only dress like 4 - 5 vets a night. they should have a good team up front with some very nice rookies and returning players.

When they inevitably get rid of Stevens, I hope they'll at least interview Scott Arniel.

I know there is a vet rule. That team they had out on the ice last year was horrible, I dont care how many guys got called up. the roster sucked.
