Someone above Lou needs to end the Brodeur/Lou era immediately. How long until the owners realize the special sauce has long expired.  

ok -- I grudgingly must laugh... good one.

Remember in that movie The Christmas Story, when Ralphie thinks Christmas is over, but then he sees the hidden BB gun behind the desk and Christmas is saved? This is just like that except without the BB gun, and we all we got was the pink bunny rabbit pajamas named Tuomo Ruutu.

I agree. This team needs a face lift. It needs a new identity.

You all need to get some complete vision.  You all bitch about everything.  EVERYTHING. Whatever the team DIDN'T do is the right move. 

 

Just because the Devils aren't winning doesn't mean that everyone else if brilliant.  What has Minnesota won lately?  Isn't it always just a matter of time for all those teams they try to buy/negotiate their way to a Cup? The more splashy moves they make more they are casting a vote of no confidence on the stars they already HAVE.  For fvcks sake give your team a chance!

 

I'm not pleased with Lou's moves.  The only thing worth bitching about is merely that 3rd rounder -- I mean wtf was THAT all about?  Rutuu isn't even worth Lokti?  He had to go and throw a pick in too?  Whatever - it's all a big so what really. 

 

 

I agree with the bitching part in reference to this, seems like such a non issue, we traded a guy that wasn't going to stick around for a guy that might provide a little more help in the now, and even if we ate the entire salary it isn't that big of a deal, cuz really who the fvck are we going out and signing in the offseason, we hardly ever make a real splash, Kovy was the last one and that was a deviation from the mean if anything.

The Devils traded for Ruutu

 

Salvador is still here

 

Larsson is in the AHL

 

Brodeur might be the Devils starter and back next year

 

Lou has lost it

why not send a dman to Carolina with Lokti (Sal, Volly) and get a low pick? or nothing? weird.

Yeah -- Lou is sticking to his unloaded rusty old guns.  He used to the best at cutting bait - now.. OY VEY  he only gets rid of dead wood if it BEGS to be gotten rid of.  I don't get it at all.

All the Lou hate is hilarious  I love how people are sucking his dick one moment, then ready to divorce him the second he doesn't do exactly what they want.

 

Is anyone actually looking at the activity today?  It was light and low this year LEAGUE-WIDE.  It's a buyers market, and if you scan any other teams you'll see people saying the exact same thing.  Players weren't getting big returns, so it's no surprise to see that guys we wanted moved (Salvador, Volchenkov) weren't moved.  We also don't have a lot to give up right now, because if we wanted a Moulson or Vanek teams would've no doubt wanted Henrique or Larsson, and people would've really sh!t a brick to see his name mentioned.

Lou will just use the same excuse, "oh there was nothing that made us better" and the owners will carry on. Nothing will be done. Like dumping Salvador or Harrold for a fvcking 6th rounder wouldn't make this team better... like addition by subtraction of one of those guys wouldn't make this team better... whatever.

Oh shut up, a lot of us have praised Lou and defended the moves that he's made in the past (including the ones that he made that didn't work out, but still made a lot of sense).  Like I and others have said, if Lou had done NOTHING, we would've been OK with that.  I don't care what other teams are doing...the grass will always be greener if you look hard enough.     

 

But this one is a REAL tough one to defend.  Yes, there is a chance that this move works out wonderfully and we're all eating crow.  I'll happily load up my plate if that's the case.  But jeez, it's hard to spin this day into being a good one for Lou, and I'm usually one of the fans defending him.

 

 

Remember in that movie The Christmas Story, when Ralphie thinks Christmas is over, but then he sees the hidden BB gun behind the desk and Christmas is saved? This is just like that except without the BB gun, and we all we got was the pink bunny rabbit pajamas named Tuomo Ruutu.

 

Home run!  Pretty sure this one actually left the stadium.  Bravo!

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.

Agreed and agreed. Finally some sensible posts.  The overreaction by everyone here is enough to drive you insane.

OK -- see the thing is -- is Larsson really all that good?  i mean that's really the thing there.  He might just be a bust - because he sure was no great shakes in the NHL.  Our d all interchangeably sucks pretty much.  All kinds of potential - that's kind of coming to nothing anyhow -- so how can you screw up nothing?  Everything out there sucks just as much when seen through the Devils lens.  No one would have added to this team.  We need some BRAINS.  Where is that lazy sh!t Niedermayer when you need him?  fvckin' around out West -- as usual.

Vanek to Montreal in exchange for a 2nd round pick and a prospect- lebrun

You say no doubt would've wanted larsson or Henrique?? What part of that Vanek return says larsson or henrique?

Some people on this board need to really get a grip.  Although it is amusing reading some the apocolyptic reactions in this thread.  Even though I don't like the trade we did make, the world isn't ending because we picked up Ruutu and didn't trade Brodeur or Sal.  Glad we didn't give up any of the prospects for a rental like Vanek or Moulson.  Sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make.  This is especially true for a team in transition like the Devils.

again, it doesn't matter if ruutu is a 40 goal scorer. the odds are that very strong that he will be nothing more than zubrus, if that, and that is just not something the devils need, at all.

 

misallocation of resources - this is the lou lamoriello of the last 5 years.

This message will be used later as a proof that i was a believer from day one

Getting Ruutu is a key move for a great future... You will see ! 

 

Marty Legacy still alive and Ruutu on our roster (he will be useful !) (you will see)

 

Thank you Lou !
