Craig Berube’s job as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers is safe.
But that could change soon, based on what GM Ron Hextall said today:
"At this point, the decision hasn't been made. He's still our head coach." -Hextall— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) April 15, 2015
Hexy not ready to decide on Chief. Says he wants to be methodical and doesn't want to make the wrong decision.— Sam Carchidi (@BroadStBull) April 15, 2015
The Flyers missed the playoffs by 14 points with a 33-31-18 record. They went 42-27-10 last season under Berube, fighting back to make the playoffs after Peter Laviolette was fired early on.
Berube’s job security has also been brought into question as he’s clashed with veteran forward Vincent Lecavalier, who agreed it would be difficult for the two to coexist next season.
Hextall said today that buying out Lecavalier was not an option.
