Well see im not one of those who think he should be perfect and i dont think id want anyone else than him for NJ but like i said im not gonna close my eyes on his bad moves or make excuses for him and pretend he's some kind of jesus 2.0 lol
Last season is on Lou, obviously It's maclean's fault technically but Lou waited WAY TO LONG to fire him, it was obvious that the ship was sinking with players letting it known that they were not happy with maclean's system and all yet Lou waited wayyy too much and he admitted being too patient amd that it was his fault.
I also dont think that i know everything and that i could do his job, absolutely not but i can still admit when hes making a bad decision, some folks here cant
Again, yeah, it's easy to say Lou just should've fired MacLean, but it's not like you can just snap your fingers and Plan B appears. Especially when the failure is so swift...Lou obviously didn't hire MacLean thinking MacLean was going to crash and burn like that. As far as the players went, it wouldn't have surprised me if Lou thought, "You know what, enough is enough, you guys have killed your fair share of coaches, you're all well-paid, this is my guy and you're going to learn to play for him." As we saw, it was also time for some of the old guard to be cleared out, so even though MacLean clearly wasn't the right guy, the players weren't blameless either. Lou really didn't have much choice but to try to stick it out initially, and it must have killed him that his guy didn't work out, and that he had go beg Lemaire to come out of retirement to help him out of such a difficult situation.
