Found these over at HF Boards:

 

DeBoer, The Tyrant And Locker Room Terror Nobody Sees

 

Florida Panthers Fire Head Coach Peter DeBoer After 2010-2011 Season

 

The first talks about how he treats young players.  One of my biggest complaints is how he continues to bury the young guys in favor of the old vets.  

 

The second talks about his firing from the Panthers.  Ironically they had enough with his constant line juggling and inability to hold leads.

I never remembered any coach prior to Deboer blow this many leads.  And his handling of young players frustrates the hell out of me.  Both articles are spot on.

Is it me, or does it seem like he's on his way out? He's being villanized so much, it just feels like the end is near. Also, kind of surprising to hear that he's rough on younger players. That's either one player with some kind of agenda against PDB, or the emotionless robot we see on the bench transforms like the Hulk when he's in the dressing room

Personally, I like him as a coach.  But the blown leads and ruined prospects is ridiculous.  That needs to stop.

Articles are nothing special, really.  Could've been anyone on here writing articles like that. 

 

If Lou thinks PDB's the problem, he'll let him go.  I think he gets until the end of the season though, but if they lose the next two games and go into the Olympic break 23-23-13...guess I wouldn't be completely surprised.  Not sure what a new coach can really do though.  Devils would probably have to 10 games over NHL .500 to get in the rest of the way.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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.

How does Lou fire Pete? Just because he has had a quick trigger in the past? Lou sees a team that is prepared to play, has a good system, rarely if ever takes night's off (great back-to-back record), but can't score. Since 2012, the Devils didn't sign Sykora, Parise, Clarkson and lost Kovy. Lou hasn't done enough to replace, and I think he realizes Tedenby, Josefson, Matteau were not great answers.

 

If he wanted Larsson playing, he could have him playing very easy. People can be upset but Deboer has not been the reason this team has struggled to win.

by the same token when's the last time a Lemaire team blew a one-goal lead late in a game?  This has happened three games in a row with Pete, really three years in a row.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Does anybody know when Deboer's contract actually ends? This could play into Lou actually making a move as well.

I mean - how is this germane?  How is blowing late game leads somehow tied to coaching?  They played 3 marvelous 3rd periods in each game.

He is the coach of a team that routinely blows leads and buries young guys. Go figure.

Lou has fired coaches with this team in first place.  He knows where the blame lies here.

The Devils didn't play 3 marvelous 3rd periods. Choking in the last seconds isn't marvelous...neither is not getting the crucial insurance goal to put us up by more than 1. That all goes into it...and I'm sick of blaming it on an unprecedented streaks of bad luck.

I agree with '7'.........tonight there was a brief flurry, but I seem to feel that the 3rd periods in the last 3 games they were just dumping the puck and playing D.

 

I tell you all though, if they do manage to make the playoffs, they will be well suited for the tight games there.

Colorado outshot NJ 9-8 in the third.

 

In Dallas, NJ outshot Dallas 8-6.

 

In Nashville, NJ outshot Nashville 8-7.

 

Breaking even on the shot board while trailing is really hard and yet NJ did it 3 straight nights - just couldn't get the insurance goal in either game.

To be fair here, the Devils didn't pepper the opposing goalie with a large number of shots.  That being said, I also don't think they simply sat on a 1 goal lead either at least until the very end of the period.  I think that's the problem.  I don't want them sitting on a one goal lead in the 3rd even with just a minute to go.  Keep attacking.  They also need to know it's ok to ice the puck.  Stop always trying to simply chip it out of the zone.

They hit what, four posts? PDB can't do much about that. "Hey Zubrus shoot inside the frame!" ?

 

This was their 36th 1-goal game. They have 22 1-goal loss or SO/OT loss. If you play that many close games you will also blow a lot of leads.
