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.



When did MartysBetter get a second account?

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."

Lmfao!!

John Shannon ‏@JSportsnet:

I know Lou Lamoriello will never confirm it...but hearing Peter DeBoer did get a 2 year extension today.

yeah it has to be at least 2 years, why would he only sign a 1 year extension when he could definitely get more term somewhere else?

I'm glad he'll be back because I think he's a net positive for the team and some of the biggest knocks on him (Larsson, josefson and Marty) won't happen next year. The players also seem to like him.

This cracked me up. 

 

Like others have said, he got as much as he possibly could out of a bad team.  Not upset at all that he is coming back.

Deboer is no dummy. Toronto is a powderkeg where he'd be expected to be a savior and in short order.

While I have pounded on him a bit, I suspect Lou has some plans and opinions for the roster already at a birds eye level at least.

There could be a few coaching changes this year, its a dangerous time to be exchanging coaches. you could be left out in the cold and wind up worse off than you began

I bet Clarkson's disappointed that PDB isn't shipping up north.  He's probably Clarkson's only hope.

Good to know but nobody asked and nobody here cares.


What the hell is your problem? I wouldn't mind bringing Brian back. Why not? It's not as if he's going to want absurd money (I assume) or play a top six role (again, I assume). sh!t, I wouldn't be pissed if they brought petr sykora out of retirement.

A lot of other fan bases were hoping DeBoer was going to be available

Already, there is speculation that Shanahan could replace Carlyle with Peter DeBoer, whose contract as coach of the New Jersey Devils is about to expire.

DeBoer, as you know, had a major role in Clarkson’s development, first with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League and then with the Devils. That alone could make DeBoer a good fit in Toronto.

i thought for sure that he wouldve strolled off into the sunlight and whatever team he went to coach would wind up having some great successful season next year.. i mean thats just the type of luck we tend to have over here.. glad he will be back again next year though hopefully he has a little more talent to work with

Well looky there!  A speculative article!

Last I checked the Toronto Sun does not represent the pulse of a fan base any more than Rich Chere or the NY Post does for us.  Most of the fans I were reading reacting from the Maple Leaf perspective saw zero improvement in bringing Deboer in since a lot of the issues they've had with Carlyle, are many of the marks on Deboer (terrible at developing/teaching prospects, stubbornness, slow to adjust system).  They hated it even more on the basis of being desperate to use familiarity and historical success to try and get Kadri on the right track and try and get some value out of Clarkson before it officially is sealed as the worst contract in hockey.

They are idiots.  I'm glad that HFboards is still a thriving place.  Most Leafs fans I saw on Twitter were quite excited about the possibility of landing DeBoer.  But then again, you'd never project your views onto others.
