Flyers fire coach Peter Laviolette

<span style="font-weight: bold"> <span style="font-size: 17pt">Flyers fire coach Peter Laviolette </span> </span>


<span style="font-weight: bold">RALEIGH, N.C</span>. -- The Flyers have fired coach Peter Laviolette, the Daily News has learned.

Laviolette will be replaced by assistant coach Craig Berube, according to a club source. It is unclear at the moment as to whether Berube will be an interim coach or whether he will be given the job on a permanent basis starting today.

The Flyers are holding an 11 a.m. press conference at Wells Fargo Center with GM Paul Holmgren and team president Peter Luukko to discuss the news.

Laviolette and the Flyers got off to an 0-3 start for the second season in a row - and just the second time in franchise history.

Should've got rid of Homer first - He's the one who put these overpriced under achivers on ice

Re: Flyers fire coach Peter Laviolette

Firing a coach after 3 games is stupid.

But this is the Flyers we are talking about.

Does seem a bit premature. Although, maybe the players tuned him out.

Snider was on the radio this morning, and said that this years camp was the worst he has ever seen, nothing he saw at camp could have been considered positive.

Not sure why he waited until game 3...

When when he declared Giroux "the best player in the world" it should have been obvious he was completely delusional.

I saw that too. Not exactly a ringing endorsement.
