I don't know about you, but do you think that Lou may have some sort of dementia/alzheimers onset?

 

I know, I'm just trying to drum up some speculation because this team has been catastrophic (in comparison with the normal NJD standards) and I'm at a loss for words to understand why.

Stop making threads.  

I swear, you're lucky I'm not a mod.  Because I'd drop the banhammer so quickly on you and other forum trolls that crawl out during losing streaks.  DM is a much more tolerant individual than I am, clearly.

A few serious miss steps the last couple of years, but I don't think its a mental slip. No one is perfect, no one is always going to do the right thing. He has brought this franchise 3 cups, and for the most part over the last 20 odd years we have been a team that can contend.

 

I don't think there is anyone out there that can turn this franchise around over night, he's been blindsided by a few departures that no one really expected (kovy/parise). I imagine if aaron Rodgers left the packers suddenly they would suck to, if brees left the saints, if brady left the patriots. Can't fault him for kovy, maybe on parise he shoulda locked the guy up sooner, but I guess parise always knew where he was going to play when his contract was up, given the fact we gave him the competitive offer.

 

Schneider for what we paid, was a steal. While not marty in his prime, Schneider is still going to be solid. This was our most glaring issue going forward. We have some good defensive prospects and a solid goal tender for the future. While this year, the next and maybe the year after that is bleak, we have the foundation for another solid team.

 

All we need now is some young forward prospects.

 

It does suck that we are a draft lottery team this year with no 1st, but we will recover.

 

 

 

P.S this is my reaction with a level head, I will curse this team and eventually give up on the boards and watching them at some point this year if they continue these losing ways. But I have faith in Lou still, and I can see our team a few years from now being a very good team. Good defense and good goal tending is a recipe to win even in todays higher scoring NHL.

The speculation on alzheimers/dementia is pointless, wrong and insensitive to anyone who has known people who have those diseases. Poor taste thread.

The Schnieder trade was a pretty good one for a guy who's supposedly mentally challenged :rolleyes:

So, essentially, the team has finally hit the rough times that EVERY team hits, our fans can't handle it, and we're resorting to deciding that our HOF general manager must be suffering from some sort of mental issues. Because, it can't just be that winning doesn't last forever, right? Lou's gotta have dementia. :rolleyes:

There are 30 teams in the league.  Only one can win the cup.  We have won it 3 times in the last 18 years.  How many times have the Rags won during that period?  Philly?  Pittsburgh?  Montreal?  Its the law of averages.  The fact that the team was in much deeper financial poop than any of us realized, probably hampered the way in which Lou operated.  It's absolutely stupid, to start attacking Lou now.

First off, the answer is because you touch yourself at night. Secondly, what a stupid thread.

You don't retain your job with two new owners and show signs of not being on the ball. This thread is just silly.

lol i saw that also but didnt even bother to wasting my time clicking on it.. not sure why i chose to bother with this one.. probably because i felt annoyed at the 16 year olds who know nothing except the team name coming in here and saying stupid sh!t making themselves look completely retarded.
