More Evidence of a Necessary Coaching Change?

"When you practice like you want to be a champion you start to play that way, and practice has been that way. … I've been pleased with the effort guys have put forward. Ultimately, the teams playing in June are the ones that are the highest conditioned, and we're getting there. It's been noticeable for me."

—Peter Laviolette on  the team's improved conditioning level.

Does Laviolette's quote say more about the basic satisfaction with the team's practice sessions at this point or does it point to yet more evidence of the last regimes shortcomings?  Just getting to a point of acceptable NHL conditioning at the mid point of the season could be added to the list of reasons the team has found itself out of a playoff position.  Was the Flyers team Laviolette took over not only playing directionless, uninspired hockey, but by the nature of this comment, not physically prepared to meet the challenge of an NHL schedule as well?
