To me, a coach has alot to do with how his team plays. In this situation, DeBoer never himself played in the NHL, only played 300 something games in his entire career in the OHL and IHL.

Stats show he was a strong coach everywhere he was other then the NHL. Yes Flordia wasnt the best team the past 3 seasons or something that he was down there, but still it just seems he is pretty inexperienced. I never trusted someone who never really played hockey.

It means alot I would think to the players taking advice and demands from someone that once played the sport, that was once in their spot.

If it is him that is named, I hope to god he proves me wrong and makes me eat a sh!t sandwich.


For examples...Pat Burns, Mike Keenan, Mike Babcock, Ken Hitchcock, Scotty Bowman and John Tortorella never played in the NHL, so there goes that sort of theory out the window.

I would venture to say that sometimes players do not make the best coaches. For every Jacques Lemaire there's a Wayne Gretzky.

Back to my original question, does anyone have any insight into what type of coach this guy is?

What he favors on PPs, PKs etc? Anything?

I think he's kind of like a Bruce Beaudreau/Dan Bylsma type that seems to be pretty popular these days. I didn't get to see many Panthers games when he was head coach but they did put up more of a fight under him. Right now I think it's hard to say as I'm sure most coaches develop a style to suit their players' strengths.

Maybe, just maybe along with a coach being named we will see a trade/signing of a left winger? Maybe?

DeBoer was my pick from the start, I wanted him as an assistant when Sutter was in town.

A coach would put more pressure on Lou getting a team into shape and set as quickly as possible.

So since Msweet said DeBoer is a lawyer will DeBoer scream "Listen I'm a lawyer godd*mit!!!" when he eventually loses control of this team?

I think DeBoer is a good choice, will inject some fresh energy into Devils. Has potential to be like Bylsma.

Yeah. I know. We all do. But 40 people said it would be Deboer, including Darren Dreger. And then you came in saying that it will be 'official' like you're breaking a story. Those 'sources' have any Parise news?

All the buzz and tweats and such seem to have settled on DeBoer. Is anyone hearing anything else, even if it's a "nothing is certain" kind of thing? You'd expect that sice they evidently leaked it wasn't therrien they would do the same for deBoer if it really wasn't him.
