the point is if you get rid if Lou who do you replace him with?
Lou knows how to win and build great teams. Anyone you replace him with will be a much bigger gamble than keeping him.
From the title of the thread, I didn't really take it to mean "Lou feeling the heat from the fans". I think if he's going to be feeling it from anywhere, it will be from ownership. There's always going to fans that will complain about Lou's moves, and won't or can't tolerate a down period or some moves not working out. And the Devils fanbase has its fair share of instant gratification types.
I think if VBK was still the majority owner of the team, Lou would probably have almost Glen Sather-like job security. With this group, I'm not so sure.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
