Tension Building With The Philadelphia Flyers

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

The Flyers are broken, and it would be surprising if another coach isn't hired to try to put them back together.

Coach Craig Berube is a good hockey man with strong principles, but he has lost this flawed team. Many of the players are upset with how Berube singled out goalie Steve Mason - three times - in the team's eighth straight road loss Thursday, a 4-1 defeat in Calgary....

When you combine the Flyers' repeated failures with the growing tension in the locker room, it's fair to wonder if first-year general manager Ron Hextall will soon make a coaching change.

Hextall, we presume, wants to hire his own coach.

Berube was hired by then-GM Paul Holmgren.
