as much as I respect Lemaire, I think the game has passed him by - he's not been as readily able to adjust since the rules change post-lockout. And he doesn't have Scott Stevens anymore.

I like the potential of his ability to develop these young kids that we will be using this year.

I also give him him the benefit of the doubt that he knows that goals need to be scored. Not every game can be 1-0, 2-1 and so on.



Exactly.

another plus is Rolston thrived under Lemaire. Maybe this will bring out the best in Brian, I can garuntee Rolston gets Madden's A.

LOU: Alright, listen up, everybody. I have something to tell you. I'm not quite sure how to say this...I'm bald. Let me give you a minute to absorb that. That's the way it is, it's nobody's fault...Madden. But, I've decided to do something about it.
TG: Oh, great. You gonna Buy a Wig, fatass?
LOU: No, dummy! I'm gonna help make this a bald man's world, by establishing the National Association for the Advancement of Bald People!

as much as I respect Lemaire, I think the game has passed him by - he's not been as readily able to adjust since the rules change post-lockout. And he doesn't have Scott Stevens anymore.


Wild point totals since the lockout:
84
104 (Gaborik played 48 games)
98
89 (Gaborik played 17 games)

I agree it's a far cry from what the Devils have done in that same span of time (only one sub-100 point season), but this isn't exactly Joe Gibbs returning to the NFL.
