Why don't Devs fans pressure media & social media, ask the questions... twitter, FB, email to Deb, Kenny, Sherry, EJ, NHLLive, etc... If anything, be nice to get answers to the 'unknowns/whys'

Coaches aren't paid to develop players, they're paid to win.  This leads to tricky situations like the ones above - it's tough to separate past results from possible future results, especially since coaches have a hundred other things to worry about.  

 

It's three games into the season, not Game 5 of a playoff series.  Besides, it's not as if Larsson was screwing up all over the place LAST night.  Yet he's the one that gets scapegoated when Volch has inane pinches every game and is slower than dirt, while Harrold goes all the way over to the left boards leaving a man open in front of the net last night.  Harrold is a fill-in that gets treated like a regular.

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

I'd like to see PDB not change his line combinations every other shift. How does he expect chemistry to develop when there's no consistency. He's gotta have some patience.

 

As for Larsson I think he's too laid back for his own good, which can make it look like he's not trying. He definitely needs to be more aggressive on ice and develop an edge. Opposition players seem to pick on him more than any of our other D.

Only sense I can make of this is Debo is trying to pull a mean streak out of Larsson. TG's tweets seem to show him pretty upset about it. Hopefully it all works out. 

 

Still, how can they be dressing a career minor leaguer for a 4th overall pick?

Peter Harrold is not a career minor leaguer, but even so, he's outplaying Larsson.

its the same situation for both the forwards and the defence... 

 

guys who are "better" and "should" be important parts of our future... are getting benched (and frustrated) over guys who clearly should be out for "wtv reasons" that no one other than Deboer seems to see.

 

Everyone here has to be wishing for an injury on Sal or Voch or Gionta cause it seems like its the only way.

This. I never understood why he randomly switches player's lines willy nilly, it's not doing anything!

Well Lemaire was doing it and we were fine with it. It's only frustrating cause we're not winning. If we'd be winning we'd be thinking... fvck we have an awesome lineup with interchangeable players who can play with anyone in any situations.

But he changes them every shift! Doesn't even give them time to see if they work well with each other. That's what he should be using practice time for, not a game...

Career minor leaguer is a stretch, but he certainly hasn't been much more than a spare part

He's certainly a great guy to have as an extra.  He's pretty good at moving the puck.

fire him.... replace him by laviollette...

 

We need emotion right now and laviollette is that kind of coach

 

He is more adapt to the grup we have....

 

And laviollette is not scare to play the youngster

 

And those who said you coach to win.... you have better chance to win with josefson laarsson in the lineup than gionta and harrold

Just saw the practice lines for tonights game. I give up.

At least there is this:

Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice 3m
Sergei Fedorov coming out of retirement in Russia. Alert to Devils: Sign him. Another old guy you can dress over a young player.

AMEN!

Just when you thought the lineups couldn't get worse....

 

I was sure Loktionov was going out, but for Carter again?
