If you think Pete needs to go, you're still stuck in the delusion that the Devils need to compete every year simply because they're the Devils. This roster was trash, no one else was getting another ounce out of this team. Not Lemaire, not Bylsma, not Roy, not Scotty Bowman. Accept that this team was just bad. He still managed to put together one of the best, if not the best, defense in the league.

Yes. Except unless Clowe has suffered brain damage, he's going to need to play.

Conpletely forgot! Then no Brian Gionta

@TGfireandice: Lamoriello said reports that DeBoer's contract is up after season are false.

 

 

They probably just agreed on an extension and it was Lou being Lou.

 

Utterly hilarious...I'm gonna miss Lou when he's gone :P

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Well, I suppose as a Devils message board we will debate anything but I love how no matter how many times we see Lou do this, we still somewhat wonder whether or not what he says is complete bullsh!t or not.

 

I mean how much of a vague, bullsh!t, troll-like quote is this:

 

Pete DeBoer is under contract for next year, has been under contract for next year, and will be coaching next year.

Of course he won't.

 

I'm sure Lou is loving tweaking the media :lol:

Seen so many people go home lately but DeBoer going to Toronto would not have been a great career move, not with the organizational mess they're building up there.

Would it be worse than Sutter in Calgary? It would have been an interesting challenge for him.

 

Extremely happy with this news.

I'm happy Pete is back for at least another year. I'm sure next year I'll be yelling or ranting about some weird decision I feel he's making but deep down, I think Pete is a great coach. It's a love/hate relationship.

Just not too much talent. I'd rather give him just enough guys to play so we don't have to see some sort of crazy Harrold starts over Larsson and Fayne stuff again haha. The less roster decisions Pete has to make, the happier I'll be.

Sutter with Calgary is different because yeah that was obviously a horrendous career move, but he knew that it was.  That was pulling the plug on his career, and I doubt he'll coach in the NHL again.  DeBoer could still coach if he left NJ for Toronto, I think, he'd just be getting into a really awful situation where his job is constantly questioned if one of his bosses isn't in favor of the move.

 

I wonder if Lou does what the NY Giants do where he never lets a coach go into a season without a contract (Sutter being the obvious counter-example but Sutter was here on a series of one year deals IIRC)

Just wait...the Devils will be 8 points into a playoff spot next year with 10 games to go and Lou will fire DeBoer and be like ""Pete DeBoer was never under contract for this year, has never been under contract for this year, and will not be coaching the rest of this year."

I'm happy to read this. Overall I think he's a solid coach and his system has proven to be effective, especially when the team has a bit more talent to get pucks in the net. Hopefully Lou can add an impact player on offense and that coupled with a full year of Schneider starting should have the team back in the playoffs.

 

My only complaints about DeBoer this year were his handling of Larsson, Josefson, and Loktionov specifically but at the end of the day, the Devils still did about as well as they could with the makeshift roster. Hopefully Larsson can earn PDB's trust next year. I wouldn't mind if they moved Josefson out for a pick or something.

Larsson better have his trust, like Tri said he is waiver eligible next season.

Love this move.  I've said it before, getting rid of Deboer is the worst thing we could do at this point.  This is good.
