#NJDevils job. The silence of Mike Eaves is deafening in Madison. No denials, no happy to be in Madtown statements coming from him.

George Falkowski (sp) of News12NJ is reporting on tonight's sports report that Mike Eaves could be named coach as early as Tuesday. No guarantee as Craig Ramsey is supposedly still in the mix, but he thinks it will be Eaves.

I heard this from a friend, too. Did he say at all how he knows this? Or just "a source"?

The fact that nobody can get in touch with him is a really good sign. I'd be happy with him. A die-hard Rangers friend of mine loves Eaves and was telling me how pissed he'd be if we got him. Seems like he has a great reputation and resume.

Here's to hoping Tuesday is the day. I'd be happy with Eaves as our coach.

Just because one rookie coach didn't work out doesn't mean no rookie coaches can ever work out.

Just because a few rookie coaches didn't work out could mean another rookie coach wont either.

I hardly consider Brent Sutter's time here a failure, so that's 1 for 2 since the lockout. Sutter was handed the worst team the Devils have iced in some time and made the playoffs.

I'd be just fine with Eaves as coach - he has a long track record and he could be here for a while.

That doesn't make any sense. John MacLean's struggles have no effect on this year's coach, rookie or not. You're saying that no rookie coaches can ever have success, which simply isn't true.

Johnny didn't have a good system the Devils were used to. Tallinder called him out on that after he left. A rookie could do good for the job pending his system.

FWIW, just read over on HF that as of today, Eaves has denied having any contact with the Devils.

Which would make perfect sense since if you want to work with Lou Lamoriello you don't talk to the press about it. So how long before he signs. :koolaid: :evil: :koolaid:

I confess I thought he sounded cool.

This will make the "Devs ink Hitch" headlines all the more nauseating. or Ramsey.

let's face it ... in Lou I'm not so sure I trust when it comes to coaches. There just isn't anything out there is the thing of it all.

No reason to trust he has been a bust.

I still want DeBoer, as he has NHL experience, is young (meaning he could be a long-term solution), and I put no stock in the fact that he couldn't do anything in Florida, because no one can ever do anything in Florida.

I read that about Sutter and a week later we held a press conference for him.

I was wrong to ever doubt the powers of Lou Lamoriello.
IN LOU WE TRUST @Manta04
