34 games in the 2015-2016 a relative fair idea of Dave Hakstol’s coaching style should be known. What is more important is whether or not that coaching style is working successfully. The picture below compares the statistics of the Flyers in the first 34 games under Craig Berube last season to the Flyers under Dave Hakstol this season.

BerubevsHakstol34GamesIn

As you can see the Flyers are better in 8 out of 11 categories under Hakstol then Berube this season. Most notably is a better penalty kill as well as better 5 on 5 defensive play. However this better defensive play has come at the cost of the team’s offensive play. Compared to last year at this time, the Flyers have scored 13 less goals as well as scoring around 3 less goals per 60 minutes of power play time.
