Stevens holds fire against Flyers

Recently fired Flyers coach John Stevens had only positive things to say about his former team Monday when he spoke publicly for the first time since he was fired last week.

Stevens was let go by general manager Paul Holmgren and replaced by Peter Laviolette. The Flyers had lost six of their last seven games - the last two by shutout - when Holmgren decided a change was needed. Holmgren indicated he will offer Stevens another position in the organization.

"Your emotions are disappointment; it's more about letting people down," Stevens said. "You go through a process like this, the team not meeting expectations, you feel responsible."
