LOL   What else is there?  I mean, that completely explains my 26 years (in October) of marriage.

Accurate points but, so what? Nothing we (fans) can do about it except complain.

 

Either things will be the same and the Flyers live up to Einstein's thoery of insanity. Or, they went the opposite way by hiring Fletch and letting him hire his coaches.

 

Funny thing about Flyer fans, nothing is a success unless it ends with a cup


Pretty much.

You can also start your own podcast, come up with locker room conspiracy theories, sell them to others like a subway evangelist, then profess to know everything that goes on in the locker room like a complete pompous ass.

I mean, I understand that works for some other fanbases.... :ph34r: ;)

I count myself among those fans. 

 

Lifelong Flyer fan that wasn’t alive to witness the cup victories. 

 

I was a wee lad and don't have vivid memories of them. I still idolize Bernie Parent though.

 

I've been chatting on these boards with you and others for well over a decade, so obviously I'm invested in the team. But I'm also well past the point where the orange-and-black glasses in my avatar significantly change the view of the team.

 

Having a 100+ point MVP candidate and a hard fought first round playoff loss can be a Good Thing. Just not, for me, in year six of what's the worst period of hockey this organization has ever seen, especially when that's followed up by missing the playoffs entirely.

 

As always, people's mileage may vary - and that's totally fair. I try not to begrudge that. Much.

 

But I'm going to need to see success on the ice before getting my rah rah's out.

I get it. Flyers playoff hockey is a treat, and we haven't really been treated lately. 

 

I watched a few of the videos up on the Flyers site the other day - they were 'sounds' from the season when players were mic'ed up on the ice and in the locker room. To me, that's the best stuff because it's real. It's not manufactured by JJ and Clement and McGuire and Carchidi and so on - this ridiculous professional sports marketing engine that just churns and churns larger-than-life narratives. 

 

Watching those clips of the guys mic'ed up just brings it back into perspective. It's just a bunch of dudes pushing a puck around and having fun.

How many regimes have the Flyers had in the last twenty to thirty years?

Since 1990:

Vigneault will be the 15th coach (including interims)

Fletcher is the fifth GM.

 

Paul Holmgren appears on both lists.

 

The Penguins have had 12 different Head coaches in the same time.  Not a lot of difference IMHO.

It wasn't about the number of cups.  It was about regime changes.  How many tanks?

 

I get what you're saying though.  Stop feeding the trolls...

      Wow, talk about culture change in Philadelphia. There's no more messing around anymore. I love it. I get the hate for Therien, Yeo and Vigneault, but these are coaches that are going to legitimately push our guys. I expect Therien to work exclusively with the defense and I think that Provorov, Sanheim and Meyers will love him. If Ghost buys into what Therien's selling, he could become Andrei Markov 2.0. Forwards are also going to back check and help out the defense, so guys are going to have to

      2012-13 If only this team could draft! We'll never get better while Homer is at the helm.   2013-14 Berube really isn't an NHL-level coach, so that didn't help.   2014-15 Wow! Look at all those sweet trades. And we finally have good young talent coming! This team is going to be much better in 3-4 years.   2015-16 It's fine! Let's give Hakstol a chance to figure things out. More great young talent coming in too! This team's gonna be sweet in 2-3 y

      I am a little more optimistic with these hirings than pessimistic now. I wasn’t that way when it was just AV being hired. It’s been a few years since the Flyers have had this kind of coaching experience behind the bench. I’m not so concerned about who the coaches are at this point. I’m willing to give them a chance and see what they can do.  Individually they all have their faults, but collectively they may be a great coaching staff. Time will tell.

      I'd hate to have either Therien or Yeo as a head coach...but as assistants, I guess you could have worse. heck, we HAVE worse.    And honestly, when I first heard Therien as an assistant, I was thinking CHRIS ! LMAO!

      Bottom line, anything short of continued success over a sustained period will get blown up. Whether its inexperienced staff of coaches, or a whos who of the "elite". So I tend to agree that this team is too talented to play mediocre and needs a foot in thier asses. They have spent too much time drafting and building to sit around watching lackluster performances.    It always seems like the coach is blamed and the players get a pass
