HE STARTED OFF like Jack Nicholson in "A Few Good Men," snapping at his questioners as if they were petulant employees, outraged at even the insinuation that another early-season coaching change was indicative of a franchise that had again lost its way, a franchise structured on short-term successes and volatile changeover. Someone asked about going through 11 coaches over the last 20 years and Ed Snider practically sneered. "Why do you want to go back to all of those coaches?" the Flyers chairman said.

PAUL HOLMGREN is feeling the heat. So much so, in fact, that Holmgren wasn't going to wait until the regular season starts tomorrow to voice his displeasure with the performance of a few of his players in a characterless 1-5-1 preseason. "We weren't a playoff team last year. Then to have a preseason like we had, it bothers me," Holmgren said. "I've addressed a couple individuals. In the last couple days, I think the players that we have realized it and picked it up a couple notches in practice.

The Flyers were one of the NHL's worst teams in even-strength situations last season, causing general manager Paul Holmgren to make a significant summertime move. Enter center/philanthropist Vinny Lecavalier, the former Tampa Bay star who owns a number of the Lighting's records. Lecavalier, 33, signed to a five-year, $22.5 million free-agent deal in July, gives the Flyers some much-needed size (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) up the middle. He also gives them a terrific playmaker, veteran leadership, and dominance in the faceoff circle.

FLYERS CHAIRMAN Ed Snider said the sting of last season lasted until this week, when training camp finally pulled the curtain on a new one. The disappointment lingering from failing to make the Stanley Cup playoffs for only the ninth time in 45 seasons is why Snider, 80, took a hands-on approach this offseason. For the first time in a long time, Snider was at the Flyers' draft table in June when they nabbed defenseman Samuel Morin at No. 12 overall. He also lauded general manager Paul Holmgren's decision to add without subtracting, citing his excitement for the Flyers' "young kids.

ASK FLYERS goaltending coach Jeff Reese about the upcoming season, and it is tough to get him to stop smiling - which says a lot for man with perhaps the toughest coaching job in Philadelphia sports. "You can tell I'm excited about the two of them," Reese said. "It's going to be a good combination. " There is an honest sense of excitement and intrigue in Ray Emery and Steve Mason entering training camp, and Reese can feel it. It's a particularly strange feeling, considering no one - not even the Flyers' coaching staff - is sure who will be in net on Oct. 2 in the opener against Toronto.

The family of Joe Watson, a grinding, fan favorite defenseman on the Flyers 1974 and 1975 championship teams, is hoping to recover a Stanley Cup ring stolen from Watson's daughter. The diamond encrusted pinkie ring the Flyers gave to each players' wife to celebrate the 1974 Cup victory was taken from the Rittenhouse Square apartment of Heidi Watson, 34, in a burglary Monday afternoon. As a member of the original 1967 Flyers, Joe Watson played 11 seasons with the team and memorably scored a goal in the 1976 game against the Soviet Union Red Army team.

After being snubbed for about three decades, Fred Shero, who directed the Flyers to Stanley Cup titles in 1974 and 1975, was elected into hockey's Hall of Fame on Tuesday. "Long overdue," said Flyers scouting consultant Bill Barber, a former Philadelphia winger who is also a Hall of Famer. The induction ceremony will be Nov. 11 in Toronto. Right winger Brendan Shanahan and defensemen Chris Chelios and Scott Niedermayer were also selected, along with Canadian women's national team defenseman Geraldine Heaney.

DANNY BRIERE is unlikely to hear any more boos at Montreal's Bell Centre. The free-agent forward has agreed to terms on a 2-year contract with the Canadiens. "For me, the Montreal Canadiens' fans are probably the most passionate fans in the NHL," Briere, 35, said last night. "It's an honor to be playing for them, in front of them, and all I'm hoping is that we will all be cheering in the same direction when the season starts. " The Flyers last week used a compliance buyout on the final two seasons of the 8-year, $52 million deal Briere signed in 2007.
