I like the quote from Laviolette about instilling discipline in their games, and their lives too.

Ha, didn't read the page before... guess others like it as well.

If there's one thing I've learned being a Flyers fan is that you really need to pick and choose which of the words that come out of their mouths you believe.

Again with the bond to Stevens with "all the players who came up through the AHL." That is simply wrong information.

<shrug> In the end, it doesn't really matter who's decision it was.


Peter is being interviewed on CSN right now, He was flat-out asked if Richie is gonna keep the C. He said that Richie's the Captain, and that he hasn't even met the team yet. I know I make it sound that he left that open, but that's not what I intend....it seems pretty certain he'll keep the C.

He also said he's big on "holding people accountable".

It's like he reads this board.

"I know this was a very difficult decision for Paul to make. And, I really feel bad for John because he's been a terrific long-time member of our organization," Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider said in a statement. "I was hoping that the team would play better and that this could have been avoided, but after last night's game, I think Paul felt he had to make this change. I make it a policy never to overrule my general manager, because once I do, it means I've lost confidence in him. I really want to wish John the best."
Another statement, this time from Snider, saying Homer made the decision

I think Holmgren discussed with him what needed to be changed with the team and Laviolette made sure to stress those points a bit. Either way, he seems like he has the attitude to get the team back on track, hopefully his system will follow.

I don't care what says. Pick and choose what you believe. They say one thing and do another and have been doing that for a long, long time.

The idea that Snider didn't push the button has to make the bully fans nervous. What if they don't fight anymore????

I'd rather win games than fights. There have been times this organization had that the other way around.

As far as the captaincy, I think Pronger with the C, Richards and Timonen with As is how I go.

I hope not, my Richards jersey with a big "C" just got here a few weeks ago. Haha. JK. I agree with that to a certain extent. Anyone hear from Stevens? Did he have anything to say or has he already faded into the background?

He's probably scouting some Junior B game in Moose Factory, Ontario or something.
