I actually understood what you were going for there for PK. The problem is we're not GMs, though some fans think they could do the job. Enough of us watch the game that we can interpret and analyze and debate and discuss what we see, and try to make sense of it, through what our eyes tell us and, yes, through various stats. And as we've seen multiple times, the facts aren't always 100% clear...there's debates on the "facts".
The problem with the "GIVE ME A SOLUTION!!!!!" request is that, from a fan standpoint, it's almost pointless. Too many fans' solutions consist of trade proposals that have no chance of ever happening, or are clearly an attempt to fleece another team. Yankee fans call into the WFAN to do that all of the time...give us your superstar for four or five guys we'll barely miss. And other solutions are usually very obvious from a fan standpoint: Devils need a scorer. OK. Which one? For what? Easy to point out, but much harder to actually solve the problem, especially since, as we all know, so much more goes into these decisions/solutions than simply filling a roster need. And let's face it, sometimes the solutions (at the least the quick-fix ones) aren't always there or readily available. I don't know what Lou can really do right now, except hope that Marty has another hot streak in him, and that some of his scorers start shooting at a higher percentage (especially the ones capable of doing so). I don't see that move out there that's going to make much of a difference in 2013, especially with Kovy not playing.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
