The Flyers coach is supposedly on the hot seat with his job but is putting the pressure on some other people now. The Philadelphia Inquirer's Sam Carchidi reports that Laviolette is suing Bank of America seeking more than $3 million worth of damages for convincing him to invest in high-risk funds that "utterly collapsed."
Laviolette, 48, has had success in Philadelphia winning 47 games and topping 103 points in each of the last two full 82-game seasons. Overall with the Flyers he is 145-94-29 in 268 games since taking over for John Stevens in December 2009. He led the Flyers to an Eastern Conference Championship and trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2010.
