Anyone that's getting on Larry is still feeling burned on the Parise fiasco and is expressing misdirected anger. Larry's been dragged back here so many times already, came back as an assistant after being fired when Cuniff got cancer, came back as coach when Burns was sick, came back as an assistant to help Sutter/Mac/DeBoer. It was 50/50 he was leaning toward retirement anyway, so taking a lesser job with a team near family works out for him.

The timing sucks with already losing Oates, but hopefully Stevens does take the job full-time.

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

He was skating with his grandkids after practice when the team was practicing in LA for the SCF. They seem to be between 5-8 years old.

He's done SO much for us - he's earned the right to be a Grandpapa the way he sees fit.

Is some disrespectful, spiteful, selfish loser here going to piss on his NJ memorabilia now? :rolleyes:

I don't think anyone is pissed by the decision or has voiced any problem with it. Some people probably didn't know the personal reasons behind it.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Wilson is big on tech, maybe he'll be the head skype coach. I don't think much of this. I would guess his contract was up and he didn't feel like going on the road much anymore, and being a roving instructor for the Devils, is still road work.

Wilson is gone, dumbass. LOL. Man I'm tired. The tech point still stands though.

Something about this makes me think DeBoer took the Devils job under the condition that he'd continue with Lou's "company men" assistant coaches for one year, but starting with the second year he'd be using his own guys.

Anyone have any background info on who DeBo's worked with in the past? I know that in Florida he worked with Mike Kitchen, Jim Hulton, and Gord Murphy.

Again I briefly come out of retirement... I didn't see the halfsharkalike bail... But, of course, I saw the enlarged new Stevens bio on the website - after he had no bio last season. So I pretty much knew Larry was gone... :(

Now... For REAL. I retire ... No special assignment coach here...

I'm guessing Stevens still isn't into fulltime asst coach but hell be there if he sees he can really help. That's my take on it anyhow.


I miss Oates. Maybe we can get Hall to replace him. ? :urg:

Based on some of the posts lately this fanbase needs a few more shots at it. Read the threads on this site.

There's a thread with a dude pissing on a Devils jersey - its is a disrespectful, ban-worthy, embarrassment to this site.

I expect that from Rags and Flyers fans - not us. I understand the shock for a few days - but - Have we become a bunch of whiny spoiled children?

Go ahead, trash me because it says "LA" in my profile - but I'm really surprised at a lot of folks here.

A bunch of posters trying to read tea leaves into press quotes by Parise as to whether he was deceiving the fanbase, attempting to rewrite history with even the most eloquent of posts? They did it to Langs and they're going to do it to Parise. Master conspiracy? Bad Captain? This guy worked harder than anyone else on the ice every night - and every player said so! He was what drove this team.

Can't we thank the guy for his contribution? Can't we repsect his hard work?

I don't care what anyone here says - the most important thing at the end of the day is to be able to hug the people you love. That's what life is about - relationships. Zach wanted to be closer to that, for his future kids and family to be able to be together as a unit.

I'll never criticize that. He's earned it - more than many many players. Wish him the best of success in MIN.

Time served.

I didn't trash you cause you have LA in your thread but you decided to take shots in this thread in which nobody said a bad thing about Larry. I trashed you cause you have taken numerous shots at this fan base over the years and there was no reason to do it in this thread yet again. Take the Parise sh!t to the 8 other threads about the same topic.

No offense but you've come on late here and are comparing apples and oranges. It was one poster who pissed on a jersey and no one is congratulating him for it.

Fair enough - wrong place.
I was just hoping people weren't going to continue their anger-fest onto Larry.

But still, ease the hell up. Don't come into this place once a month, kick your feet up on our coffee table, and tell us that we're all bad fans because a few of our fellow members are dopes.

The more I think about this the more it hurts. All season long some of the long tenured guys here talked about how this was the most cohesive coaching unit they have seen.
