07:27 AM ET 10.07 | Where is that rewind button? [For the second straight season] the Flyers have opened with three consecutive losses. They dropped a 2-1 decision Sunday evening to the host Carolina Hurricanes, a team projected to finish toward the bottom of the Eastern Conference. The Flyers play host to Florida on Tuesday and will try to avoid their first 0-4 start in their history. In three games, the Flyers have scored a total of three goals. Asked if he thought his forwards were pressing, coach Peter Laviolette was curt. "Could be," he said. ... The Flyers made the playoffs just once in the three other times they started a season 0-3 -- that was in 1994-95, when they turned around a 3-7-1 season by acquiring Eric Desjardins and John LeClair. Meanwhile, [Paul Holmgren] is working the phones for a potential deal.

It is no surprise considering how slow this team is. The early word out this way is that he is talking to Calgary.

I'm on the fence as to whether Sather or Holmgren is the worst GM in hockey right now.

If you must know, Sather is a genius by comparison.

What a joke. Like he was really the problem.

And replaced with Craig Berube? I hope he's finally finished his sensitivity training.

One of those "you gotta do something" moves. Berube? Don't know about that either.

I only said that, if you compare him to Holmgren, he is. That's not too difficult, is it?
