I agree, Lou sounded like he bs'ed half of the interview - he essentially never answered the questions being asked.

He sidestepped by saying that he feels like the team is an orchestra of people, without the chemistry it just doesn't work. I agree with that much. Then he went on to say that he felt any major addition would essentially mess up the orchestra, and the music just wouldn't sound as good. More so, he didn't want to take away major parts of the orchestra (meaning teams probably asked for too much for what he wanted to get). He never went into basics of saying that he tried to make deals, but he rather said that in the end he made the ultimate decision that he felt the team worked well enough together and was good enough to be a major Cup contender. He just wouldn't come out and say anything. He always used some sort of metaphor or comparision.

What he said about the players we acquired was pretty good, however.

He wants 8 SOLID defensemen for the playoffs, and those 8 solid defensemen need to have experience in the NHL.

As for Marshall, he says he liked the way Marshall was able to up his play after going from a Stanley Cup winning team to an expansion team that won't make the playoffs any time soon. He liked the heart of Marshall, and he also liked the fact that he is a gritty player with hands. Joe Nieuwendyk seconded that statement.

Hitchcock said he wanted 8 defensemen for the playoffs as well.

Lou just copied that idea. Not a bad idea to copy though. I still wonder who will sit...

If he goes into any specifics of deals that were worked on but did not happen he undermines the remaining players confidence, like NJ said, so he just has to downplay it.

He's in management, he a professional bullsh*t artist. what else do you expect, you've seen his interviews for 15 years.
always the same.

Did anyone catch that one part where Lamoriello said stuff as to why he didn't make a big deal?

I'm telling you that one sentence told me a lot. I think Lou couldn't make a deal because of cash constraints.


Great sidestepper of questions. Typical Lou :lol: .

What the hell was he talking about???? Is this a hockey team or a symphony orchestra? Violins? I was waiting for him to compare Stevens to a cello. I guess we can only hope another line besides the WC line joins the horn section.

I seem to be a step behind. I got a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach when I heard that Gomer was seen leaving the building. Healthy scratch? This doesn't sound too good. Maybe it is personal reasons.
