Various sources today report the Philadelphia Flyers have fired Peter Laviolette as head coach. His replacement will be Craig Berube. Press conference today at 11 am ET to make it official.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Looks like Laviolette is the fall guy early. I don’t believe he’s the one at fault here. Laviolette didn’t forget how to coach an NHL team. He can only work with the pieces he has, and right now, the Flyers aren’t a very good team. Maybe Berube can get better results, but it’s not Laviolette’s fault the goaltending isn’t good, or that there’s been no suitable replacement for Chris Pronger. Feel free to weight in with your thoughts.
