It's really funny, re: Kovy...it took a lot of seemingly unforseen events to get the best out of him.


Yea...this.

You do know that Devil fans are so used to being in the playoffs that people save their money for the later rounds, right? Triumph

It's really funny, re: Kovy...it took a lot of seemingly unforseen events to get the best out of him. First, MacLean falling on his face, paving the way for Lemaire to come back and improve the weaknesses in Kovy's game. Then Lemaire leaving, and DeBoer finding a way to build on the foundation that Lemaire built, though it didn't happen instantaneously. What seemed like an iffy match when he first signed here seems like an absolutely perfect one now. DeBoer has been a perfect fit too...just seems like this particular group and coach click incredibly well together. God knows the Devils haven't always been the most coachable bunch around.

I love this one it feels like the sequence over the past 2 seasons led to this....all the coaching changes and missing the playoffs seemed to get the players attention. I think Kovy development has gone largely unnoticed to some part but watch his forechecking now versus last season. Look at hi finally finish his checks and play with his team, it's awesome to see that now and I think all that has happens over the past 2 and a half seasons enabled it

The one thing that bothers me more than anything are the people who this season and last, called for Lou to step down. It was so arrogant and selfish. NJ is not a hockey place nor is it a big city. The only reason our franchise is somehow one of the most respected and has had any success let alone 3 Cups, is because we were lucky enough to get Lou Lamoriello. Someone else could have gotten him and this team would be playing hockey in a different state right now. Most of it was the inexperienced fans who aren't tenured or old enough to remember the Cups but some of it came from older fans which bothered me even more because while the former was ignorant, that was just spoiled.

The guy made a lot of mistakes post lockout, he's been given a ton of leeway mostly because he earned it. I didn't really think the fan base here was unfair to Lou at all.

With what the did for this franchise....he deserves more than a few years of screw ups.The fanbase was pretty much like, "Oh we're not good anymore? time to take Lou's head." Of course the only reason we ever had success was because of the teams he put together.
