Paul Holmgren is Going to Fire Peter Laviolette! Paul Holmgren is Not Going to Fire Peter Laviolette!

Go fuck yourself

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.

Sam Carchidi…

… and Mr. Panaccio…

Hmm.

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.

John Tortorella Says the Rangers are “Playing with Some Jam”

John Tortorella and his big yapper spoke to Pierre McGuire during the Rangers-Bruins game last night about what makes the Rangers successful. This, apparently: “Just grinding it out and playing with some jam.”

WITH SOME WHAT?

Now, I have no idea if this is a phrase that is said in locker rooms across the league. But I had never heard it before Peter Laviolette's tirade last season. Played hockey for eight years, too– never heard it then, either. So was Torts just saying what was on his mind? Was this a Freudian slip because, somewhere deep down inside, he wishes that he, too, could spit grammaticals of fire? Was Torts intentionally prodding Lavs before tonight’s game? We don’t know. But what we do know is that it is not Torts' phrase, and that it would be best to step off it, good sir.

Peter Laviolette, Fashion Correspondent

Peter Laviolette can’t be taking this lockout well. I imagine that he chews on glass to keep busy. Perhaps screams obscenities at neighborhood children who take their sweet ass time walking to the bus stop. What, the fuck, is the matter with you? Yesterday? Fine, you were tired. Not today. Unacceptable. I don’t give A FUCK that daddy hit mommy. Not gonna have it! Not here, not now. This is too important. Now let’s go– get on that bus with some fucking jam!

I’m just guessing.

Anyway, I’m assuming the Flyers are still paying him, and, well, it’s not to coach. So just what is Lavs doing to keep busy? Well, this:

Kind of literally.

That’s Lavs' wife, Kristen, who was honored along with 18 other women for her “talent, style and contribution to the city of Philadelphia” at the XIX Most Fashionable Women in Philadelphia Awards on September 18.

Lavs wrote about it for the Flyers’ website. Let’s do that again: Peter Laviolette wrote an article about a ceremony honoring, ostensibly, hot women. His wife included.

What a fucking boss.

To the grammaticals, which are hilarious: [I included the entire article, because it’s awesome]

Flyers Sign Peter Laviolette to Multi-Year Extension

Kyle Scott - August 1, 2012

The Flyers announced this morning that they signed Peter Laviolette to a multi-year extension:

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they agreed to terms with head coach Peter Laviolette on a multi-year contract extension, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.

"We are thrilled to have Peter continue his work with our group as we push to compete for the Stanley Cup,” Holmgren said. “Peter has done a terrific job for us and is very deserving of this extension."

 

On length (I bet it's pretty massive): Flyers Inside Reporter Anthony SanFilippo says it's for two years, plus the one-year remaining. So, three.

No one thought Lavs was going anywhere and this just pretty much cements that. The good news is that, for once, Flyers coaching news doesn’t involve Ed Snider throwing someone out of his private jet. Figurative, of course.

Lavs couldn't be reached for comment, but we're told this was his reaction:

Dan Carcillo Rips Michael Leighton… and Peter Laviolette

I struggled with the idea of posting about anything Dan Carcillo said. The only time I can recall doing such a thing is when Carcillo tweeted about finger-banging someone who was later revealed to be a CB reader (chronicled right… hither).

He quickly removed (and likely regretted) that comment. 

But, this weekend, speaking at a Blackhawks fan forum, which was likely attended by about seven to nine people, Car Bomb went boom again, this time taking aim at former teammate Michael Leighton and… Peter Laviolette? 

First up, Big Bear Michael Leighton. According to some Twitterererererers in attendance, one of which admitted that Carcillo’s comment were mostly tongue-in-cheek,  Car Bomb said: “If we had better goaltending, maybe we would have put up a fight.” 

Ouch. While I certainly can’t blame anyone for, um, blaming Leighton about anything (he’s what the Spanish call El Terrible), throwing a former teammate under the bus is bush league. Not to mention inaccurate. The Flyers did put up a fight. Leighton gave up the soft winner to Patrick Kane, but can hardly be blamed for the Flyers losing the series. The Blackhawks were a better team. 

About Lavs? Not many details exist, but Carcillo said something to the effect of having “zero respect” for the Flyers coach. 

We didn’t reach out to Lavs for comment, but we’re guessing his response would have been somewhere along the lines of go fuck yourself.
