Pierre LeBrun tweet,

Mike Yeo takes over as head coach. Michel Therrien also let go. Vigneault signed a five-year deal worth $5M a year back in April 19 so Flyers on the hook for another two and a half years.

25 million dollar deal to one of the
big coaching names who’s seemingly made
musical chairs circuit for a while.

Is it that hard for Philly to find a quality head coach?
I know salaries went up a lot with Babcock et al.

But unless it’s a guy like Trotz, I just don’t see how that investment
in money and term is wise. It’s a bit like signing an aging power forward
after a good year. Are you sure you’re going to get more than 1-2 years of
impact out of them before you’re stuck?
