While the Flyers are a bad team, that is on the GM not the coach. But GM's don't fire themselves.
This is an awful move, but one that has to be done by any GM in this situation because otherwise they lose their job. Pete was NOT to blame for this team's failures... he simply wasn't given ANYTHING to work with. He had awful goaltending the entire time, and lost Pronger and a few other key guys on defense, hence their team being awful defensively. Add to that, losing Jagr hurt them, trading away Richards and Carter was a stupid move. Holgrem has to go, he is the problem.
Yup. maybe out of panic we can get them to trade us Simmons...... One can only dream.......
