Below is a statement from Flyers chairman, Ed Snider, on the decision to relieve Craig Berube of his head coaching duties.
“It is always difficult to let somebody go that has worked so hard and has particularly been such a great member of our organization. I wish Craig the absolute best in the future and I really appreciate everything he has done for the Flyers. I know that Ron has agonized over making this decision. He studied over the situation very carefully and finally made the decision. Obviously he is the general manager and I support him in what he does and I am looking forward to whoever he hires and hoping we can have a much better season next year that we did this season.”
