Imagine running in to Lou at Panera Bread or DeBoer at Subway and had a conversation like this:

fan meets coach

That article was retarded. I don't what the fan says about how it's true, there's no way to tell and I have a real hard time believing that an NHL coach is going to give up intimate details about his team to some random dude he meets while at lunch.

And we all know how the conversation would have gone had it have been Lou.

Fan: How do think the team is going to play next year?

Lou: Status quo

Fan: What's Marty's status for next year?

Lou: Status quo

Fan: Do you think the team's strong play heading in to the playoffs will carry over?

Lou: The team's play will be status quo

Am I the only one who thought when they read the thread title, some Jets fan ran into Rex Ryan, and Rex spilled beans on in-house stuff? Because I could totally see that happening. :P

Rex Ryan would immediately pick up and eat any spilled beans.

Can you imagine how fast a Devils coach would be fired if he spilled stuff like this to a fan?

If Noel wasn't drunk when he blabbed all that to a random fan, then he's got a screw loose. If it's true that is.

Wow, that's incredibly irresponsible journalism on the part of the author. So basically all a Jets' fan has to do is get a picture taken of himself with the Winnipeg Jets' coach, claim to have a detailed conversation with that coach, and the author will then print quotes from the alleged conversation because, hey, the fan swears it's the truth? That's beyond lame. If I'm the Jets, I blackball that guy.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I find it a little suspect as well, unless the team or coach ended up admitting that it happened.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Not only that, the coach is saying things and this guy is writing them down? Wouldn't the coach think, 'Hey, maybe I shouldn't be talking to this guy'? Why didn't the coach sign the written record of his conversation afterwards?

Could be wrong, but the way I read it, the guy wasn't actually writing anything during the conversation, he merely wrote a summary of what he remembered afterward. Either way, I agree that the story is pretty far fetched. Most likely the encounter did happen, but the details of what the coach actually talked about are greatly exaggerated.

Well, the journalist didn't do much to point out to the readers that there's is a high possibility this is not true.
