Power Ranking the Last 5 Philadelphia Flyers Head Coaches

Where does current Flyers coach Craig Berube rank on this list?

Head coaches matter in the NHL. Look at the difference the Philadelphia Flyers experienced last season after they fired Peter Laviolette, an offensive-oriented coach, and replaced him with a more defense-first coach in Craig Berube. They went from a listless team struggling to win to a playoff team in less than a full season.

Here is a look back at the last five Flyers head coaches ranked from fifth to first.

The factors considered are the coach's record with the Flyers, longevity, regular-season record and most importantly, playoff success.

A coach needs to have lasted at least half a season with the Flyers (or 41 games) in order to be considered for this list. Interim coaches who coached only briefly or took over for a sick or suspended coach will not be included here.

Feel free to comment on any coach discussed here and why you feel they should be ranked higher or lower on the list. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
