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. **Follow us on Twitter, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return HomeFollow us on Twitter. Subscribe or Return to Bob's Blitz.

New Philadelphia Flyers head coach Craig Berube told a reporter to get lost during his postgame press conference after getting his first win in Tuesday night's 2-1 victory over Florida.
Berube's comment was a response to a reporter's question about whether he had a particular punishment in mind for forward Jay Rosehill after getting a game misconduct for a scuffle...
Tweet In Hollywood there are only certain types of people who can have long careers. Great method actors, talented directors and women who sleep with the talented directors are a few of those kind of people that immediately come to mind. There is also another kind of actor that can have a long, successful career […]
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...
Craig Berube and the Flyers have agreed on a 2-year contract, Tim Panaccio reports.
The Flyers and head coach Peter Laviolette parted ways earlier today, just 3 games in Laviolette’s 5th season. Berube was an assistant before being promoted today.
Laviolette had reportedly lost the Flyers’ locker room, and owner Ed Snider called this year “The worst training camp I have seen...
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.
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...
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...
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...
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.
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.
GAME-IN-REVIEW: FLYERS 2 - PANTHERS 1
It wasn't very pretty, but the Flyers gladly skated off with two points last night after downing the Florida Panthers, 2-1, in Craig Berube's head coaching debut. Philadelphia benefited from a brilliant goaltending performance by Steve Mason, who stopped 33 of the 34 shots fired his way.
Mason made a pair of first period goals...

The Flyers defeated the Florida Panthers 2-1 on Tuesday night giving new head coach Craig Berube the victory in his first game as head coach. Berube was named head coach Monday after the team’s 0-3 start led to the firing of Peter Laviolette. The victory allowed Philadelphia to avoid an 0-4 start for the first time in team history.
The Flyers were able to withstand a strong...

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...
