Stevens Fired; Laviolette To Takeover

The Flyers have fired head coach John Stevens after  nearly 3 seasons behind the bench of the orange and black. Inconsistent and passionless play are the clear reasons as to why the former Flyers player, Phantoms coach and long time member of the organization is no longer employed. The Flyers have an 8pm news conference scheduled to officially announce the news aswell as name the new successor (at least for the short term).

Rumors are swirling that former enforcer and current assistant Craig Berube will takeover on an interim basis but .I have heard that Peter Laviolette the former Hurricanes cup winner and US Olympic head coach is being tagged as the replacement from two sources.

More as it comes out.
