Hey Chico is retiring, Marty should retire and Pete and staff should be fired. We could have one big party.

That seems incredibly unlikely - that Lou, having had 26 years on the job, won't get to both retire on his own terms and/or pick his successor (provided nothing goes remarkably wrong between then and now) and again you are projecting your dislike of Lamoriello on to the new owners.


The new ownership owes Lou nothing and they have shown no inclination to allow middle management make their decisions for them in terms of succession in any of their interests that they hold.

TG's latest suggests that DeBoer is seeing the same exact things we are:

The new owners don't seem to know very much about hockey.  They do see a guy who has kept his job in a business where it's really hard to keep your job for more than 5-6 years who's done it for 26 years now.  They could've easily sounded more weaselly regarding Lou's future, but instead were saying things like 'In Lou We Trust'

The words tell the story that the Devils got a bit out of sync with their system.  The issues with the team we saw on Sunday can't be fixed by lineup changes.

They could be if they had the players.  The defense is just flat out terrible.  Has been for a last 3 years.

They might not know much about hockey but they know failure and decay when they see it and they make changes to turn a profit.  It's time for Lou to step aside.  Great run with the Cups, forever grateful to him, but it's time to go and get fresh blood to build forward and make changes.  The "Devils" way as Lou called it is now long over and gone in this new NHL.  The constant coaching carousel, roster turnover, failure to cash in on assets before losing them for nothing, lack of player development, poor drafting, etc.  It's been existent since the 2005-2006 seasons in spades.

 

If the Devils miss the playoffs (and badly) for the third time in four years, there's going to be a change, whether it's called a "firing" or not.

would really hate to agree with all of this.. but who knows. none of us know what is discussed behind closed doors or what is in the making back there. But something has got to be done if the team does not start finding ways to win games and the coaching staff is definently on the hot seat.

I like to think I am aware of when I am projecting, or use words like 'probably' or 'likely' to mitigate the impression that I think I think like how other people are thinking.

Cory Schneider playing tomorrow against the Rangers. DeBoer said he may make a couple roster changes too.

I'm predicting Josefson in for Lokti for one change. Lokti has been pretty invisible this year. Maybe Fayne in for someone (Larsson as usual?).

Agree 100%. I would still probably put my faith in the kid one or two more games, but I can see Josefson taking his spot tomorrow. Fayne in for Harrold, maybe? Fayne's always seemed pretty solid in the Devils-Rangers games past few years.

Gimme Fayne for Volch and I'll be happy. I'd say Josefson for Gionta, but we all know there's no chance of that after Gio's game last night.
