Laviolette Safe In Philly?

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,

General manager Paul Holmgren said he is not thinking about making a coach change, and he criticized the Flyers’ “compete” level during an impromptu news conference at the team’s practice facility in Voorhees on Thursday.

At first, Holmgren gave coach Peter Laviolette a seemingly lukewarm endorsement.

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.

“Paul assured me that there was nothing to worry about, that they weren’t interested in trading Jeff. He told me that Jeff could come in and meet with him to tell him the same things. And he did. He assured him that they weren’t trading him.”

Cover your 6 Pete.
