NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

ROFL you think deboer is responsible for bringing in lokti? Or do you think deboer is a genius because hes playing lokti? Lokti has been one of our most consistant producers of points since coming here, not a very hard decision to put him on the ice.

 

Deboer failed miserably as a coach during that lossing streak. I still stand by my comments, when this team is winning its hard to see weak points. We got a glimpse of what deboer does when things aren't going well, he bashes his head against the wall continuing to do the same thing every night, scratching good d-men and starting the struggling goalie night in and night out. Oh ya he also smashes new lines together without giving them any time to mesh.

I wasn't talking about loktionov specifically.

The devils went through some very tough stretches last year but still made it through the playoffs with 102 points and coached them to the finals. To start wanting to fire someone at the first sign of real trouble is short sighted and quite a bit bandwagon. No one said or even thought they would go 48-0 this season or even close to it. Lets just make the playoffs and then go from there

On the contrary, looking at the coaches decision making when faced with adversity is pretty important in my opinion. Nothing about how he managed the team during the streak made any sense. The mentality of every pro-sport team should be that they are going undefeated (in this case 48-0)  and the mentallity after every loss should be that they are going to go 47-1, 46-2 and so on untill the season is over. That's fvcking bullsh!t, you give maximum effort every night and you don't forget a lossing streak like we just had which almost tanked our season, because no team wins every night.

Also just saying, Deboer is partially responsible for the make up of our roster both this year and last year. Deboer pressured Lou last year to bring in guys so they could role 4 lines. Lou seems to still like to have 1 checking line. Not saying Deboer is solely responsible for the Loki pick up but it's definitely possible that he told Lou "hey we need a little more O"

That way of thinking is good in theory but it totally impractical. It totally ignores the fact that there is another team out there wanting to win as well. To believe that every devils loss is because of something the devils failed to do is silly. While every aspect of the devils broke down at some point in the streak, there were plenty of times we just got beat or just had bad puck luck.

Besides if every team is usually good for at least

speculation, could be but it's not the role of the coach to find talent. And judging by what we did to start this season, lou was just looking for young players with some talent and find one that stuck, lokti stuck but a guy like butler could have been good potentially as well.

The decisions he made were approved by Lou also. Anything that happened via players been scratched/called up needs to go through Lou. If it didnt make any sense then Lou wouldn't approve it. I'm not a fan of some of the things Deboer did in that stretch but they know way more than we do.

Besides if every team is usually good for at least bad stretch per season and that is now different now outside if Anaheim and Chicago. Would you rather the devils go through the suck stream late feb/ early march or end of April?

Who said I'm ignoring the other team? That is how every pro sport team should be run, believe you are going to win. I'm not upset about lossing as much as I'm upset with how we are lossing. The first half of the lossing streak the whole team played poorly, somewhere in the middle the team started playing well and moose starting just lossing games ( moose and some defensive breakdowns but moose should have stopped some shots). The decision to constantly remove good d-men while keeping our worst performing d in, and not benching moose after 2 games being pulled is a little ludacris.
