Lavi Out

Postby tfrizz on Mon Oct 07, 2013 9:36 am

Well... that was quick!

Frank Seravalli ‏@DNFlyers
Flyers have fired Peter Laviolette, per a source. Replacing him with Craig Berube. Press conference at 11am.

On the flip side... how can you realistically expect a coach to win with Mason/Emery in nets, that rag-tag group of defensemen, and Claude Giroux making over $8-million per year?

I wonder if he tried to call a time out when he was getting canned.

I met Lavy in 1998-1999 when he coached the Providence Baby Bruins to the Calder Cup.

What amazes me is Berube as HC? REALLY?

Wow, not that I want it to happen, but when does Homer get the axe as the architect of this team?

Yep. Holmgren is the one who should be held responsible for this. How he keeps his job is beyond me.

At least they waited 3 games into this season so the legitimate candidates could be hired by other teams.

Good, I like the guy and hated having him coach that pack of bungholes.

Craig Berube lmao. Hey, I know, make Zac Rinaldo a player/coach.

Holmgren may have just taken over the "Teflon GM" crown from Mad Mike Milbury.

Berube as a coach is everything Pens fans could hope for.

it's a fun moment of embarrassment for the flyers, but it's ultimately bad news for the rest of us. there will be a bump in their play starting very soon.

Yeah well they can bump in play all they want in October. When the POS system that's sure to follow is implemented and settled in by April, we'll all still be laughing.

Getting rid of your starting goalie without a viable replacement... Firing the coach at the slightest bit of turmoil... I wonder what Holmgren's lgp user name is

Doubt it, they don't have the players to turn this around, it's a team filled with a bunch of spoiled babies.
