10 Things I Learned at Tonight's Season Ticket Holder Q&A with Holmgren and Laviolette

  1. Rinaldo's 10 minute misconduct last night was for chirping at the Sabres' bench. A Sabres player had already been given the same penalty for the same thing earlier in the game.
  2. Laviolette's most surprising player this year? Luke Schenn. He's been very impressed with his play.
  3. Holmgren says he will not trade any of the core members of the team to try and win this season. Specifically, Couturier and Brayden Schenn were mentioned and Holmgren gave an outright "no". Danny Briere? He skirted the question, talking about things like his no trade clause. The NTC hasn't stopped Holmgren in the past, though.
  4. The glue that holds the team together in the locker room? Scott Hartnell. Also mentioned as talkers in the locker room, Giroux and Talbot.
  5. Holmgren has no intentions of firing Laviolette. What's he supposed to say when the guy is sitting right next to him? Dumb question.
  6. Flyers fans aren't happy with the referees and all the penalty calls. Wait, we already knew that.
  7. Laviolette "got fired" from his assistant coaching job with the Bruins when he was interviewing to be their head coach because their owner (or GM?) did not agree with his defensive zone philosophy of collapsing in front of the goal. (After not getting the head coaching job, he left for NYI to be their head coach.)
  8. Will Holmgren use the amnesty clause to buy someone out this summer? No real answer given. To me, that's a big maybe. However, he thinks the salary cap won't drop as much next year as had been initially projected.
  9. To Holmgren, "How surprised were you and what did you break when you found out that Nashville matched the offer to Shea Weber?" He was at the 4th tee at Aronimink Golf Club and he was very disappointed. He thought they structured the contract in a way that would make Nashville think twice about matching it.
  10. The pizza and soft pretzels at Xfinity Live are mediocre at best. P.S. There was hardly anybody there to watch the Sixers game on the big screen.
