Craig Berube appears to have studied at the John Tortorella School of Media Management. Berube, who took over as head coach of the Flyers after Peter Laviolette was fired on Monday, earned a win in his debut, with Philadelphia taking down Florida 2-1. Things got a little testy during his postgame podium session, however, when Berube was asked about what could have been a costly third-period roughing penalty by Jay Rosehill that led to the winger being sent to the room with a 10-minute game misconduct. “I thought it was a weak call originally,” he said. “What he did after was unacceptable. You can’t do it. He knows that.” When asked if he has additional punishment in mind for Rosehill, Berube scoffed. “You want me to spank him?” he asked. “Get lost. Talk stupid.” Sounds like this guy will fit in just fine in Philly. Check out the exchange in the video below. Your browser does not support iframes.

Flyers coach tells reporter to 'get lost,' says question was 'stupid'

New Flyers head coach appears to be sticking with that stupid hard ass personality when it comes to the press. After he told the media that a player's actions were 'unacceptable' a reporter asked what the punishment would therefore be? Berube responded, “Do you want me to spank him? Get lost. That talk’s stupid.” [CrossingBroad] Your browser does not support iframes...

Philadelphia Flyers seemingly a team without direction

It's probably going to get worse before it gets better in Philadelphia. The firing of Peter Laviolette as Flyers head coach Monday isn't going to change much of the Flyers' fortune at least probably not this season and maybe not for a while. Maybe Laviolette deserved to get fired. Both general manager Paul Holmgren and owner Ed Snider said they had concerns from the...

Claude Giroux: My 'confidence is not there'

Claude Giroux was quoting Bernie Parent. “It’s a beautiful game” he reminded reporters Tuesday. “You need to enjoy it. It feels like I’m not enjoying it right now. You go back to the basics. Start playing a little more physical. I don’t know. I’m sure I will figure it out.” There are numerous reasons why the Flyers have just one victory through four games so far...

Danny Trejo is out on the prowl promoting his new movie Machete Kills. Here he's killing it at an NHL game with a Flyers' ice girl.

Flyers claw out win over Panthers in Berube's debut

Steve Mason was the star of the game, stopping 33 of 34 Florida shots in a 2-1 Flyers win. At this point, any points are good points. Get the point? The Flyers were forced to cling to a one-goal lead for the final 20 minutes of play. Behind Steve Mason's 33 saves, they did just that, winning in Craig Berube's debut as head coach by a score of 2-1 over the Florida Panthers...

Insider Trading: on Paul Holmgren, Martin Erat and Schneider-Brodeur

Paul noted that ESPN's Pierre LeBrun fired off a meaty set of "rumblings," and LeBrun's thoughts were featured as part of TSN's latest Insider Trading segment, which TSN thankfully transcribed: What becomes of Peter Laviolette and how much heat is there now on Paul Holmgren? [Darren] Dreger: For the moment Laviolette and his family are trying to stay...

Berube draws new lines

WAYNE SIMMONDS likes to get dirty and dig in the corners. Scott Hartnell likes to bang on the boards and create havoc in front of the net. Are both players with similar styles suited to play on the same line with one of the most talented players in the NHL? "For sure" said coach Craig Berube the man who installed his new top line just hours after being hired this week...

The Flyers’ Way May Be The Wrong Approach

from Mike Sielski of the Philadelphia Inquirer, The Flyers' lack of patience, their unwillingness to consider a longer view or embrace an innovation before it's already become old hat, their reliance on the tired cliché of "Flyers hockey" - together, those factors have created a vicious cycle that has kept them from achieving their ultimate goal. The foundations...

Laviolette firing stinks

So Peter Laviolette has become the first coaching casualty of the 2013-14 season. After 3 games. He’s been replaced by assistant coach Craig Berube. Granted the Flyers played horribly in those games, but it’s a little early to be determining that the head coach is not getting through to his players. Last night the worst possible thing happened for this team: they won. With one...

Carolina Hurricanes Head-to-Head in New Metropolitan Division: Philadelphia Flyers

By Dylan Howlett (@DylanHowlett) No team in hockey napalms like the Philadelphia Flyers. Trade two elite centers and franchise cornerstones? Sure. Give a free-agent goaltender $51 million and buy him out two years later? Uh-huh. Fire a coach three games into a season? Absolutely. Under the guidance of knee-jerk reactionaries Paul Holmgren and Ed Snider, the Flyers have supplied offseason...

Rangers ice time evenly distributed through first set of games

Your ice time leader through three games. One of the major issues many had with John Tortorella was his refusal (inability?) to run four lines and three defensive pairings consistently. It’s tough to fault him, as he didn’t necessarily have the required depth to trust his bottom-tier players. After all, when your fourth line has Kris Newbury and your bottom pairing has Stu Bickel...
