Paul Holmgren is Going to Fire Peter Laviolette! Paul Holmgren is Not Going to Fire Peter Laviolette!
I call this post, Dichotomy.
Paul Holmgren spoke with reporters today, ostensibly to get grilled on why he put together such an overmatched team. Peter Laviolette’s job came up and, depending on who you believe, Homer gave the coach a vote of confidence. Or he didn’t.
… and Mr. Panaccio…
Carchidi explains how it went down: [Philly.com]
Asked if Laviolette was on the hot seat, Holmgren said, “I don’t think so.”
Holmgren later added: “I haven’t even thought about” making a coaching change and that he was “not at the point” of making a major trade.
It’s getting to be that time– the Flyers haven’t fired a coach in three years. It must be Lavs’ fault that they haven’t won a Stanley Cup since Ed Snider’s fiancée was seven.
