Laviolette Rumored to be Flyers New Head Coach

Posted By Mike Santa Barbara On Dec 4 2009 @ 11:23 pm In Philadelphia Flyers | 3 Comments

The Flyers fired John Stevens today and it looks as if Peter Laviolette will be the new Flyers head coach. It's been reported that the Flyers asked the Carolina Hurricanes, who are still paying Laviolette, for permission to speak with him about the head coach opening.

Laviolette is a no nonsense type of coach with a strict policy on fighting. Something the Flyers do an awful lot of. It could take some time to get use to his style but he's obviously what this team needs now. Stevens was to laid back and it showed on the ice with the teams recent performance.

TSN is reporting that Laviolette is the guy. And if you check his Wikipedia page it states that he is already the Head Coach of the Flyers, take that for what it's worth.

Flyers will hold a press conference at 8pm, I'll have a report after.
