Podcast time! As you may or may not have heard (you’ve heard), the Flyers fired head coach Peter Laviolette on Monday, and replaced him with assistant coach Craig Berube. Gotta be among the toughest coach/GM combo in the league, no?

Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News and I had a good chat about the drama that’s going on in Flyer-land (you can check out the home of a lot of his work, Frequent Flyers, here).

Specifically we discussed:

* Was the Laviolette firing actually a surprise?Frank Seravalli

* Did the players want him gone?

* Will it even make a difference?

* How much is the lack of success in Philly is based around the fact that basically nobody needs a new contract for 100 years?

* Is ex-brute Berube bright?

* Will Craig Berube make changes to the Flyers systems?

* What’s Holmgren’s hot-seat status?

* Is the goaltending good enough?

* Will there be trades ahead?

  1. I miss the daily podcasts that were longer

  2. RIP Score podcasts.

    • I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment’s gone
      All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
      Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind
      Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
      All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

      Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

      Don’t hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
      It slips away, all your money won’t another minute buy

      Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

      Goodbye bshelf, we hardly knew ye.

  3. these podcasts suck big wienie, get all the boys back and lets here some beers clank and drop my ear panties cause right now im hiking up my chastity belt and about to throw away the key

  4. The Flyers, newspaper beat writers, and things I’ve already read about are all really high up on the list of Stuff I Don’t Care About, so I’ll give this a pass.

    I . . . think I’m just gonna go ahead and unsubscribe. The format change appears to be here for good, and that’s not at all what I signed up for.

  5. First the Basketball Jones and now this reformatted garbage, im gonna go ahead and blame it all on sportsnet.

  6. This “”"”"”journalist”"”" just gave a third star to Ray Emery after allowing 4 goals. Why a star? Because he attacked Holtby, the washington goaler. The goaler was not severely injured so thats why Emery didnt deserve a first star.
