Angry at questions about blowing lead late 2 straight, Pete DeBoer had some terse words, cut an interview short, slammed door to coachs room

 

Haha good, melt down.  Maybe this'll finally light a fire under the organization to do something different.

Maybe he'll have Jagr not put his stick down to try to block the shot next time.

PDB having a meltdown?

What a joke. If he coached in a Canadian market he'd have questions like these DAILY

Get over it and make some intelligent decisions.

I don't have numbers to provide here, but my gut tells me this happened VERY often last year as well.

It's a staple of the PDB system.

It's a staple of typically having bad goaltending and I don't think there's really anything more to it than that.  Again, you'd expect it if NJ was giving up these huge surges, but they're not.  They played a terrific period both last night and tonight.  Who wouldn't be frustrated?

Why does everyone hate DeBoer all of a sudden? Because Jagr knocked in a fluky goal? I don't get it. It's not his fault this team can't score and has no elite offensive players

If I can recall correctly we had a tough time gaining the offensive zone with the goalie pulled last season.

I'm happy he's pissed.  Hopefully he does something about it.

I don't hate Deboer.  I actually like him as a coach.  But as I said, this kind of thing has happened far too often.  I agree tonight was purely bad luck, but why was Legwand so open?  I don't get why they don't play those 6 on 5 situations like they do on the pk.  The pk is so good because it's so aggressive.


People also need to stop blaming the lack of goal scoring as some sort of excuse.  Believe it or not, even the elite offensive teams have to protect late 1 goal leads as well.

He should be. Giving away almost a sure point when all points are crucial at this point of the season would piss many people off.

Lol how can people say the 'sudden hate for Deboer'. The Deboer hate started with the blown leads in 2012, then escalated with his consistent benching of Fayne and Larsson and playing of the Moose in 2013 then got intense with his love for Gionta Harrold and Salvador in 2013 and this season.

I'm as critical of Pete's decision making as anyone, but he also didn't ask to inherit this roster, either. Unless you've got some coach out there who can turn back the clock on some players, bless them with skill they don't have and resign all the talent they lost...well hire that guy right now.

 

People also forget it's just not Pete making decisions personnel wise, either.

To be fair, Gionta has had a good season.  But playing Harrold over Fayne and Larsson is just facepalm worthy.  Now Larsson is rotting in the minors, and sending Gelinas down is gonna hurt this team.  I like Salvador, but he's useless.  We have Volcehnkov who's a better version of Salvador.

 

Lou needs to fvcking make a move!  If we're not gonna have Gelinas up here, then get a forward who will score!

A good coach can win with this roster.  I've seen worse rosters than this not only make the playoffs, but go deep in the playoffs.  

 

Ottawa last year was without their two best players (Spezza and Karlsson) for like 90% of the season.  And without those two players, their roster is on par with what we currently have.  They made the playoffs and won a round.

Jacques was great at taking a roster with not much talent, and make the playoffs.  A lot of those Wild teams back in the day were not very good talent wise.  But he still managed to win with those teams.

Stop talking.  Ottawa had a .935 SV% last year.  If you can't win with that, you can't win with anything.  DeBoer's been saddled with one awful goaltender and he's finally learning to not trust him, although I have a bad feeling we see Brodeur in the next game given how this one ended.

That's eternally optimistic. It really is. 

 

Ottawa also played a shortened season and had unbelievable goaltending. Speed helps, too. They also had Karlsson and Michalek back in the playoffs.
