I agree. A big positive here was that, until the Flyers game, he's kept this rag-tag group competitive and playing a pretty high level. They're obviously deflated now, injuries have shown their ugly head, and not only did we not have the roster to be a great team, we definitely don't have the depth to deal with these ridiculously timed injuries.

the injury list just keeps growing and taking a toll on them... i dont remember the last time there were this many important players out of the line up.. ive said it many times and ill say it once more.. clowe being out isnt helping us either not that hes done a damn thing in the games he has played but he was given a top role here and we need all of those players to come to work

But my calling for his head extends beyond personnel. yes, you need players to do their freaking jobs and score on occasion, but the game planning just is baffling to me. As others have pointed out, our power play gaining the zone strategy has been the same dump, chase, lose puck, clear. really don't get our team on so many levels right now, but PDB's constant insinuations of this just being bad puck luck is getting as old as hearing "status quo" all the freaking time.

I don't think he will be fired. He just won't be resigned after this season if we miss the playoffs again. That cup finals has secured his job through the contract.

Even at full health, this team lacks talent. Losing Elias and Zajac is a death sentence.

EXACTLY, who are we kidding here. not only have we lost two of our best forwards, but the players we do have dont fit the devils system well. they're either too small or too slow or cant shoot. the injuries are causing havoc with the lineups, of course there's no chemistry

Every team has injuries. Good coaches find ways to win. You cannot have it both ways and keep finding excuses for all three from Lou and Deboer and the players.

Remove the top 2 players from an already offensively-starved team, and that team's going to struggle regardless of who's behind the bench.
