People say that Glen Sather does some pretty stupid things but Holmgren and Snider are right up there with stupid decisions. From exiling Richards and Carter to bring in Bryzgalov then bringing back Emery after buying out Bryzgalov you can say their resume for stupidity is growing. With that being said firing ‘Lette might be a good thing for this team. When Laviolette came in as coach in 2010, he brought these dicks to the Stanley Cup at the 8th seed and gave ChiTown a good run for their money but failed. 2010-2011 season came around and they were nasty throughout the regular season and then lost in the second round meanwhile they were picked to go to the Stanley Cup.
2011-2012 they were knocked out in the Semi Finals by the Devils and then Philly didn’t even make the playoffs last year. I guess them sucking carried over into preseason as they went 1-5 and now 0-3 to start the season. They just seem to be going backwards. I mean that’s good for fans of teams that root against Philadelphia. It’s a demanding sports city. I mean the fans are crazy, they’ll just fight people over stupid shit. I guess Holmgren and Snider expected the second coming of Christ from Laviolette but it just didn’t work out. ‘Lette’s a very good coach, a Stanley Cup winner keep in mind I guarantee he will a job because some team is bound to do terrible and fire a coach.
One more thing, I strongly feel that the greatest thing Peter Laviolette ever did as the head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers was tell Steve Ott to go fuck himself.
