    Assistant coaches

    I thought this deserved it's own thread.

    I am surprised they got Yeo on board. He could be a real asset. Therien, well, if he deflects his past anger, he is certainly experienced. Glad they kept the goalie coach. No surprise that Lappy was retained.

    They went from a bunch of coaches with little NHL experience, to having 3 nhl past head coaches behind the bench.

    Yep and Boston resigned him for next year. Was kinda hoping the Flyers could take a chance and sign him as a ufa. Boston was to smart.

    I think that Duncan Keith would fall into the category that Pronger filled. He’s not as abrasive as CP was but he calls the shots in the locker room. Only one problem-he’s a Blackhawk and they’re not going to trade him. IMO, Keith is what Sanheim will become in a few years.

    Man this team desperately needs another Pronger type of guy. I absolutely loved when he was on this team. Between stealing the puck in the playoffs, waiting out Tampas trap and driving them insane, and his willingness to call guys out for garbage performances. Is there anyone even in the NHL that is like him anymore? One of my all time favorite players and I still believe if he was able to play out his career the Flyers would have won a cup.

    This team has had this issue for soooo long now. Honestly it feels like it goes back to the days of Carter and Richard's. Not just slow starts but just a lack of give a damn until their backs are against the wall. Which is often to late.
