With an 8-11-4 record and a nine-game losing skid, the Flyers sit in last place in the NHL's Metropolitan Division. Coach Alain Vigneault has been sacked, and even the police dogs at Wells Fargo Center are licking the Flyers' emblem. That is, things can only grow worse.

Currently, interim coach Mike Yeo is in charge, but several NHL insiders are speculating about the potential of veteran coach and ESPN analyst John Tortorella taking over.
Elliotte Friedman on Tortorella and the Flyers:
''There've been differing internal opinions and supporters of Bruce Boudreau (now moot), Jim Montgomery, Rick Tocchet and John Tortorella. It's possible Mike Yeo gets the rest of the season, as Philadelphia figures out its best path. (I always worry a line like this gets published and 15 minutes later, is totally wrong.) Some players felt the preference for dump-and-chase hockey limited them, and, if Yeo's first game is any indication, they'll get the opportunity to prove it. But, if it doesn't work? They've already made major moves and a coaching change. What's next that could make a real difference?''
