This off seasons UFA's and realistic possible trades

501 posts in this topic

What a bunch of BS. Maybe I'm still irritated because of Lou's pick, but Lou will sign Fayne and get us some garbage 3rd liner to play on the 2nd or 3rd line. I have very little faith remaining in LL.

a lot of us feel the same way.. some of the things he has said does not leave me to have much hope.. wanting to re sign bernier i mean fvcking get real ..i dont think we are going to be in for any decent fa's or any good trades.

Lou hasn't even spoken to Bernier's agent. He said so the other day. Some of you really need to chill the fvck out with the Lou hate. Its gotten over the top ridiculous in the last year or so. I understand questioning moves and what not, but some of you were obviously not around for the 80's or early 90's or your fvcking heads would've exploded. You know when some of you will appreciate Lou? When he's gone. And you'll be begging for him back if we end up with some sh!t-stain for a replacement. I admit Lou isn't the 'Lou of old'- but he still knows what the fvck he's doing. The way some of you complain you'd think we were being run by some Garth Snow/Scott Howson cyborg.

You're right, some of us weren't around for the 80s or 90s but we don't need to go that far back to see all the frustration. Lou has made very few good moves compared to missteps or not enough in the past few seasons. He's a bad mechanic that just wants to keep replacing parts here and there instead of going for an engine rebuild.

So tell me then- who do you want to replace Lou? Go ahead. Tell me your solution/solutions to fixing the Devils. I'm all ears. Edited by MadDog2020

Someone that takes a bit more risk instead of filling up the roster with 3rd and 4th liners because they're safe bets. Do you think for one second that if not for JVB Lou would have signed Kovalchuk?

If Lou does make some sort of trade deal or signing worthwhile then I'll eat crow, MD, but if Lou is really intent on signing Fayne and keeping Traffic Cone A and Traffic Cone B then we'll have very little cap room to do much of anything which means more 3rd and 4th liners playing bigger than their ability and a black hole of offense.

And how do we know Quenneville is a 3rd or 4th liner? That's all Brendan Lemeiux projects as. Would you have rather seen us go with Barbashev instead? I mean, I don't get it- everyone agrees we need to take a forward. So we do. A pretty decent one at that, given that we were picking 30th (not 3rd, 30th). And still people aren't happy. I have a feeling people would be bitching and moaning no matter who we took. If we took Lemeiux it would've been 'oh Lou did the predictable thing and drafted Pep's kid, typical Lou'. If Lou took a defenseman it would've been 'stupid Lou took a defenseman, typical stupid Lou.' If Lou took a goalie it would've been 'dumb-ass Lou took a fvcking goalie at 30, typical idiot Lou'. He can't win around here. I really don't know exactly what the hell everyone wanted out of the 30th pick in a weak draft...

I'm in wait and see mode. We have two days for buy-outs to be exercised, and 3 days til free agency. Just sit back, relax, and see what happens... I'm reserving my complaints until I officially have something to complain about.

I mean anyone that doubts that Lou is out of step is just taking a piss. Look at that NSH/PITT deal today. Now I'm not saying we could have or would have traded for Neal but NSH moved two players, albeit Hornqvist is good in front of the net, who aren't top names for a perennial 30 to 40 goal scorer. Lou could probably manage a 2 for 1 deal with some of the guys we have not named Sal or Volch.

Yes its me, Chris Lamoriello. And if you think Lou is bad, wait til you see how sh!t goes if I take over! :P Hey look, hate on Lou all you want- I said he isn't the Lou of old. But most of you make him out to be a lot worse than he is. Alls I'm sayin'.

well someone hasnt taken their medication..clearly.. take a fvckin breather boss, if you cant figure out why a lot of fans are frustrated with this guy then i dont know what to tell you..maybe your blind or deaf? there is plenty of reason to feel aggravated with a lot of sh!t around here the past couple seasons. Our fan base doesnt get to enjoy a lot of things that others do because lou doesnt allow it.. we miss out on a lot that other fans get to see ..that is aggravating as well like when they had that whole documentary thing leading up to the stadium series the other teams had all kinds of behind the scenes footage and what did we have.. NOTHING. a short clip taken on jagrs cell phone that wasnt even in english.. but that has nothing to do with why were all annoyed with player decisions and moves.. rant over.. take a chill captain butt hurt this is a forum board for people to discuss things.. youve clearly spent a good chunk of your life posting on here with over 14,000 posts someone like you should understand what is done on these sites.

His responses are really aimed at Slasher, who really doesn't add anything constructive or particularly interesting.  He can manage to get under people's skin, although he's not yet in the same league as the late LD (nee Get Real).

There are teams that will likely never see a stadium series and we got to play in one at Yankee stadium.  Tell me more how other franchises are better.  This is the first time this team has missed the playoffs in consecutive years since 1987.  Give me a break dude.

Cry cry cry :blahblah:

Lou has taken over Brodeur's mantle as the fan base's punching bag at this point. Like any of us have a clue about any of these players being drafted outside of a few YouTube clips.

It's pretty plain to me that Lou is stuck in the 90s with these picks and character players. Dude needs to retire.

I think Lou is in the tank for Connor McDavid. I could GM this team better and I'm incompetent.

That last part is the most accurate thing you've said in the entire thread.

Imagine we win the draft lottery and Lou gets up there and selects someone other than McDavid.
