It seems like it's been something of an issue in recent days at least between TG's snark comment and the reporters asking Lou about the young players' development.

Look at what Calgary and Colorado have done with new coaches (I know its only 5 games in) but like many of you have said, our losing record goes back many games now.

I just can't fathom how our coaching staff can't see that having Fayne in the press box is a bad thing.

It needs to become the media's central theme until this team starts winning. The lineup questions need to be asked and DeBoer needs to be held accountable for his continued mismanagement of the lineup.

He did actually bench Volch last year for a few games.  So thankfully he's not one of them.

Yeah but he did that when we had 8 D and Tallinder was drawing in a lot. I have a bad feeling the only way Volch comes out of the lineup is if he gets hurt.

Or he gets suspended.

Doesn't mean we should be happy with it.

Do you agree with Fayne being benched constantly?

Volchenkov was only benched after he actually passed the puck to the other team in our own slot I think (in a Flyers game).

Deboer is pulling some of the same nonsense that got him fired down in Florida. Looks like history repeats itself soon.

all im fvcking hoping is that behind closed doors there's talks with Fayne telling him that Lou is trying to move bodies and that he'll be a part of the plan going forward. Just to hold on a little longer and that things will get in place and he'll have his spot.

 

Cause really thats the only way to make everything work, to move one of those 2 NOW. if we don't, we'll have 2 spots to fill, Fayne's spot (who would just want to get the fvck out of this circus) and Zid who will probably not resign.

 

Larsson - Green

Gelinas - Sal / Volch

Merril - Harrold

 

i dont know... i'd kinda want to see Fayne in there and Harrold as the 7th guy...

 

Larsson - Green

Gelinas - Fayne

Merril - Sal/Volch

Harrold

 

this leaves time for Santini to be ready to step in for Sal or Volch retiring or leaving after their contracts

I'd be VERY surprised if Santini is NHL ready by the time Sal or Volch aren't on the roster. There's a lot of defensemen ahead of him in the pipeline that make it even harder.

Have you looked at the 2010-11 Florida Panthers recently?  I mean, other than all the guys from that team in the NJ organization.  It's a pretty ugly group.

They scored 70 goals over the last 35 games of the season last year, they still would have lost games with average goaltending.  It wasn't just 'one' aspect of the team that failed, you make it out as such although Hedberg was historically bad. 

 

Coaches can't really coach offense, either.  70 goals, with the Devils' defense, should've still be enough to keep the team in most games.  Indeed, it was even with some of the Devils' awful goaltending, it's just that the Devils also couldn't win a shootout.

Yes.  I'm well aware of that team and it's issues on the roster.  Does that mean Deboer doesn't take any blame?  It wasn't just the young players who hated him for his lineup  nonsense.  The veterans stopped listening to him when he showed an inability to make changes or adjust his philosophies to fit his players.
