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 below the radar. Obviously Laviolette is not happy with the way things ended with the Philadelphia Flyers so he may lay low. He wants to coach again in the NHL and given his resume it's believed that he will get another opportunity.
If things don't materialize in the NHL say before Christmas, I'm told Laviolette would consider going over to Europe and coaching there. It's not too far-fetched that Laviolette and his family would consider that.
As for Holmgren, he was looking for Ron Hextall. Since Holmgren took over as GM of the Flyers he has been constantly trying to lure Hextall from the Los Angeles Kings. There's no imminent danger for Holmgren and the belief is he will go out on his own terms and Hextall ultimately would be his successor.
from the Philadelphai Flyers,
The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that Ron Hextall has been named Assistant General Manager and Director of Hockey Operations, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.
“We are very pleased to welcome back Ron Hextall to our management team,” said Holmgren. “Ron has a wealth of experience in the front office in various capacities which will be a valuable addition to our staff.”
