You mean like Larry Robinson, who's been here and back as many times as Billy Martin was with the Yankees?

Or Dave Barr, who played for NJ for 2 seasons and is widely credited with running the penalty kill, which ended up with the best results of all-time?

Or even Mike Haviland who was drafted by the Devils ages ago.

Lou's been in the business for 25 years. It's just more likely that he hires someone with ties to the organization for this job. And I don't see why it would be a bad thing.

I don't have enough of an insiders view to know if the loss of Oates is big or not. Regardless, he was part of the team which had a great run and I would never hold it against an assistant coach to leave to take on the head coach position. Wish him well except in a few games a year.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

I thought Adam Oates couldn't be made head coach because he's got Irish blood. In order to be made, you've got to be 100% Italian so they can trace your family back to the Old Country.

This place just started liking him and now he's leaving. Shame.


i always thought that he could've done more with the PP but in the end, the forwards really liked him so there you go.

i would assume that barr would slide into that role. there's talk that larry could likely be done as well - not sure where lou goes with that but i'm sure deboer has thoughts and he's got a voice now too.

There's something to be said regarding overall organizational quality where the coaching assistants get raided to take over other clubs. Detroit specifically comes to mind. Best of luck Oatsie (well except for 4 times a year).

Funny reading all the posts now after halfway through this season this board was ready to kill him for all the shorthanded goals against.

Best of luck to him!
