Beginning to think the Devils may just never score again. I think I've forgotten what a Devil scoring even looks like.

He definitely put the team and management in a tough spot but if Lou wasn't 100% sure he was coming back, then he should have been traded because now the team is obviously left with a Gaping hole that could've been filled by some other player that was available during the off-season and there were no moves that were made.
The team lucked out the first 10 games of the season. This is the real team now and it's not good enough.
It wasn't a fluke that the team didn't make the playoffs the year Parise was injured.
He was a major part of the team and they should have been better prepared to lose him.
That's all I'm saying.

Parise played at least a quarter of the time they were sucking ass that season. It didnt have anything to do with Zach. That season came down to terrible coaching for half the year

Took us to the cup right. One badish season and it's the world is falling the hell apart.

How do you prepare for that though? Lou didn't know if Zach was leaving for sure and for how much.

Semin has been lighting it up this year. Who knows what his future holds, but he's earned his contract this year.

Parise was kept because making the playoffs were key to the financial viability of the franchise.

It's not just one badish season. What about 2011? Missing the playoffs after just 2 wins away from being Cup champs is completely unacceptable and Lou needs to be held accountable. BigZ said it best:

Part of me is thinking that knowing him he is lighting it up because he is fighting for a contract. Now that he got one I fully expect to go back to being streaky as hell for the next few years.

It's been worse. We didn't make the playoffs in 96 after winning the cup the year before

That's on Lou 2011 that had nada to do with Deboer. If Lou had any problem with Deboer he would do something. Call ups all go through Lou. If anyone is held accountable it's Lou.

I remember 96 as well. Was so pissed off for days after they choked it away against the Sens.

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
