EX-Flyers Coach John Stevens hired by LA Kings as Asst. Coach

I'm sure Kim Johnsson knows this already but I didn't see it posted on here:

Dean Lombardi, Terry Murray, Ron Hextall and Jeff Solomon have agreed to two-year contract extensions, and John Stevens will be hired tomorrow as an assistant coach with a three-year contract.

At least he's not the head coach. I'm sure he can maybe help out their PK though. That's pretty much what he was good at.

I really do hate that Stevens is allowed anywhere near a bench. Here's to hoping he doesn't make it up any higher on the totem pole.

Do we get compensated with a draft pick like last time?

No. In the case of Lombardi, compensation was transferred because it was an executive role and he was an active member of the Flyers' organization.

With coaches, that generally isn't the case unless there is the scent of something rotten (like Fred Shero going to the Rangers) or some other transgression. Plus, Stevens was fired from the Flyers.

People hate on John Stevens way too much.. While he has his faults. He is good with younger players.

Odd situation. I don't remember a time where an assistant and head coach flipped spots let alone on a different team. I think it's a good situation for John, and wish he remained an assistant coach here longer. Also, no pressure on Terry Murray, it's not like John Stevens isn't already pegged as the next head coach of the team.

I think Upshall, Downie, Kukkonen, Pitkanen and Coburn might disagree with you.

Any coach would have been good with Carter, Richards, Umberger.

The guy was good at nothing.

What part of we changed coaches and went to the Stanley Cup finals did you not see this year??

Ummm.. Did i say John Stevens was a great coach??? That was his best attribute was dealing with younger players. I would of liked him as the coach of the Phantoms instead of the idiot we got down there now. It wasn't Stevens fault Pitkanen was a *****.. Coburn? Wasn't he the whipping boy this season until he finally turned his game around in the playoffs???

But it's still John Stevens fault even when Coburn sucked when PL was the coach for the majority of the season?? I think John being a assistant coach is good for him. He doesn't ever need to be a NHL head coach. Only an AHL one. What about the regression of Parent??? He looked pretty good under Stevens.

Come on man. The Stevens hate is ridiculous around here. We know he isn't a great NHL head coach. He can be a pretty decent AHL head coach and an NHL assistant coach.

Hopefully for Kings fan sake he isn't next in line. Also, he didn't coach our PK.

While Stevens is a good X and O's coach he was horrible with instilling discipline not to mention getting the team conditioned properly. He let his little Phantom clique totally run over him and it cost him his job eventually. No love lost for the dude but wish him the best and so far his best wasn't good enough....l

Ryan Parent had an intact spine and otherwise functional back when John Stevens was head coach. Unless Stevens has some heretofore unknown chiropractic skills, I am going to hold off on giving him too much credit for Parent's successes.

I don't think he was a good X's and O's coach , but I agree with the rest of your post. I don't get behind the idea that he is a good coach for younger players because I think he was a terrible leader for our youth. I certainly wouldn't want to see him near another team filled with youth.

He was good at baking cakes.
I don't hate the man, he seems like a nice guy but yeah, I wouldn't have him as any kind of coach.

Lies. Stevens was very, very good at working with and developing young players, it was his strongest suit and a good deal is owed to John Stevens for the emergence of Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, and RJ Umberger. Do you not remember 05-06 and the beginning of 06-07? We sucked with Hitchcock WITH Richards, Carter, and Umberger and it was no coincidence. Hitch needed experienced vets and these guys weren't ready for it. Stevens was good with the young guys but terrible at everything else, but he did that very well, that's why he was so well liked by the guys and had success in the minors. He is going to do just that in LA, work with the young guys as an assistant, where he should be and where he will be able to do well.
