I mean we all know how this is going to end up, just pull the plug now Lou. Don't wait too long like last time.

I'm all for a coaching change...but I want someone with a proven track record.......who's out there?

It's easy to point the finger at Harrold tonight because he was atrocious, but Zidlicky was a little panicy with the puck in crunch time. Harrold, I can let go, I expect him to suck (Kurtis Foster 2.0), but Zids has to play better than tonight

Lou's not going to pull the plug until like December and unlike 10-11 we don't have a Kovalchuk caliber player to carry this team.

Panthers fans warned of his handling of young players and it's becoming obviously true now. Not only that, but the team isn't winning. Hell, they're not even competing. And you can't fire the team. So there's only one option and guess what it is.

I want JJ, Teddy, and Larsson in there every game, but who do you want to bench to let our first round picks play? In case you haven't noticed the devils don't have any good prospects. Merrill yes, Severson yes, then who boucher? gelinas? matteau? There's no great prospects waiting in the wings for this team especially at foward. They're all mediocre players that you have to hope play above their expectations.

 

Zajac, Henrique they're absolutely nothing special. There is nothing special about this team. When we had parise or kovalchuk we had a player that would play like superstars every game. Jesus christ if clarkson was on this team he'd be our best player. Now, whos the best devil? Patty. A 37 year old playmaker. Well he's got no one to pass the puck to anymore so his numbers are going to drop. PDB runs a good system, we just have the oldest team in the league and it shows every night.

With a proven track record that's a realistic option?  Just Laviolette and Maurice.  Problem with Laviolette is he's too whiny and his teams dive all over the place, both of which Lou hates.  Problem with Maurice is he's one of Pete's best friends so it'd be awkward to put it mildly.

 

It almost doesn't matter at this point though.  I mean it honestly cannot get worse than 10 regulation wins in 40+ games.

Once again, c'mon son. Also, how are you gonna call me out for being a "rangers fan" when you sit here and say the game is over down 2-1. Sue me for having faith in the team to score one freaking goal. 

Chico Resch is the current Play by Play announcer for the New Jersey Devils. I don't think i put my sentence together very well son. My bad

yeah but if Lou is paying Debo millions to suck, I doubt he's gonna pay another coach millions plus Petes millions to suck too.

Well we hit Mega Millions in the offseason, the owners gotta be good for something besides ticking off the fans.

Larsson in for Harrold, JJ in for Gionta, Teddy on the scrap heap. He's a bust unfortunately. I'd have Merrill and Gelinas in as soon as possible too if things continue this way. Hell, if you're gonna have a lost season you might as well see what you've got. And you can't just give up on Zajac and Henrique. Gotta have hope that PDB is just that awful and that we can bring in a new coach that can motivate them and get the best out of them that we've seen before. I mean, wouldn't you rather DeBoer was just a sh!thead than have both of those guys be shells of their former selves? I would.

The fact DeBoer is already making excuses for Harrold proves how beyond hopeless the two are. I'm fed up with both at this point.

If they hadn't waited as long, they wouldn't have needed ridiculous efforts out of a couple of guys to fight back to .500... one of them, Brian Rolston, of all people

As per TG, Schneider didn't think the Wisniewski goal deflected off anyone and called it "a save you need to come up with at that point.”

I think Schneider should be captain, he is so passionate and blunt.

Huh? If you can't figure out what I meant let me clear it up for you...
the Devils suck.
They beat a team just because they had injuries and now they just lost to a sh!t bag Blue Jackets team.
Does that make sense?

I understood perfectly what you meant but it still doesn't make any sense. Iya not worth arguing about though, the bottom line is the devils need to play better and should beat both teams.
