imho Lou will be the GM until he's 75 at least.

 

Conte has no ambitions to be GM here (or anywhere for that matter) I'm sure he's been offered jobs by many franchises around the league. If he wanted to be a GM...he'd be one

Campbell looking like a bust? Isn't it a bit early to call him that?

 

Had a terrible year after his draft and was one of the worst goalies in the OHL, rebounded the next year to be merely mediocre, then starts out his AHL career with a not-great SV%.  I'll value that information way above the fact that he was drafted in the 1st round.  Any goalie can get good, but when you're betting on that to be a saving grace, the guy you picked probably sucks.

Not like being an NHL GM is a strenuous job.  I'm pretty sure he can go until he kicks off...

I'd say it's a pretty high stress job.

I think he (Lou)absolutely loves his job. Yes, he stresses like anybody else. Look at the rewards from last year. Nobody picked us to get to the playoffs last year let alone SC finals. He still looks pretty
smart. I think he'll bring in a guy like Nieuwendyk and mentor him for a year or two. Then fade away.
Maybe even his son. Maybe he'll train Sarge?

I really don't think Lou stresses like all these amatuer wannabes that are in the league now.  He's made his mark on this league.  Absolutely nothing is going to taint his legacy.  Unless some Paterno sh!t turns up...

Let's not talk about that Paterno situation.  Bad business.

Depends on how you define "success".

That said, it's probably better to be the guy who replaces the guy who comes after Lou rather than the guy who replaces Lou.

If that is not everyone's greatest fear about Lou and Marty leaving the Devils, I don't know what is. I mean, Lou is so good, that we could get a really good GM to replace him and he could still get chewed up and spit out 5 mins later when he makes 1 mistake because the fanbase will collectively recall Lou as the infallible one.
