Now try changing players and maybe the end result is different. Too soft and too lackadaisical with their approach.

Finally, some real experience and credibility behind the bench

Coaches and goalies can make each other look good. Time to see how Hart/Vigneault compare to their predecessors in Philly

He has 3 presidents trophies since 2010, why would we be underwhelmed? I would argue all of those teams over achieved as well.

Being a Rangers fan, it's not like I dislike the guy, I just question his ability to work with young players this day and age. Had that problem with the Rangers. You can't blame all of his assistant coaches as someone else mentioned earlier, that falls on him. Mixed emotions. He did manage to get us to the Cup as he did with Vancouver.

Oh boy.... and the cluster(frank) flyers frank this up too. I was hoping to not hire AV.
What a memorable season as a flyers fan 🙄

And with that announcement I terminate my 39 year relationship as a Flyers fan, he is awful with young players, should have stuck with Hextall as GM, and Gorton as coach, this is going to blow up in their faces.......

Underwhelmed ? Name me one head coach that plays on the ice ! Coaches more often then not are a scapegoat of poor players play. About time they get a coach who stops patting young players on the a** and starts kicking it a little. Ghost and Provorov regressed and only Ghost got sat...Can't have that b.s behind the bench. Sit both or none !

This was a methodical and well thought out hire. Just like everything the flyers do

Better then Gordon ! Underwhelmed ? Name me one head coach that plays on the ice ! Coaches more often then not are a scapegoat of poor players play

So many other better choices out there. Man come on.
He has a real justified reputation as not working well with younger guys and the flyers goalie of the future is what 22... good luck ...

I think the 156th trimester is a little late for a termination

Apparently in year 39 you couldn't even spell the name of the coach you wanted right.
