Flyers General Manager Ron Hextall Taking Time to Decide Future of Coach Craig Berube

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall says Craig Berube is still the head coach "at this point."

Hextall says there's no timetable when he'll make a decision following a season that saw the Flyers miss the playoffs.

The Flyers players gave, at best, lukewarm reviews this week of Berube following a 33-31-18 (84 points) season.

Hextall says "I'm not going to make a hasty decision and look back and regret it."

The Flyers haven't won a Stanley Cup since hoisting two straight in 1974 and 1975. Philadelphia lost in the Stanley Cup finals in 1976, 1980, 1985, 1987, 1997 and 2010.

Hextall says he expects Philadelphia will be a playoff team next season, though the first-year GM says he won't trade prospects and draft picks to try and win the Cup.
