It is clear that Lou thinks Johnny Mac needs time as a HC before taking the reins.

"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."

i'm so disappointed that i just don't care.

i'm serious - lou knows what he knows and is so resistant to risk or change. he dipped his toe in with sutter and only got burned because the guy was a two faced prick.

there was that quote that some agent said "its pretty obvious how they do it in NJ no matter what's going on with a coach or anything else."

this is a franchise standing still and its disappointing.



twice he has won the Adams Trophy ! maybe it was the players, the expectations, or him. but it was twice...

.....and its good to see Stevens "assist" and join the coaching staff in lowell. What better player could possibly help and teach our younger defenseman in lowell..

I'm disappointed. I don't think this will necessarily mean total failure, but I don't see this move leading to much post-season success. If anything this will keep the organization in a stand still in my opinion.

It will be a conference call, so maybe the FAN will carry it, or I would check MSG or MSG+ at 1:30 PM.

I don't think conference calls are ever carried on the radio or TV. All it is is a phone call. You might have people recording it for sound bytes, but I've never heard of these things going live on the air. And MSG/MSG+ isn't going to cut into programming to announce a new head coach, not without a full-fledged press conference (and even then it's unlikely since it's the Devils).


SNY (mets) always broadcast conference calls on TV... usually its a picture of the GM on the screen and you hear the reporters asking him questions.

That's because SNY is desperate for programming. :P

(So's MSG, but they'll never admit it.)

I think the question was more about style of play, asking if he'd want the team to go back to a really passive trap system.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Marty will be saying something different when he's a Vezina finalist again ...as a result of what Jacques does.

post seasons were pretty good in 94 and 95. missed it in 96, and had 2 devastating losses in 98/99.
I'll take that 50 percent success rate when he gets to the second season.

This from the Newark Star Ledger:

New Jersey Devils hire Jacques Lemaire to be their new head coach

http://www.nj.com/de...re_jacques.html

Lemaire, who said he intends to coach for more than one season, also said he has mellowed over the years in Minnesota, and is better at communicating with the players than he used to be. He also promised to be more open to having a team that will do more offensively than the neutral zone trap-happy Devils of the mid- and late 1990s.

I think this is the most reluctant hire Lou has ever had to make. He turned over every stone and found nobody else that he could be comfortable with. Lemaire has plenty of faults, Lou knows this. If jacques is too overbearing and stubborn and begins to alienate the team then he'll have a quick hook. Dont be shockef if Jacques doesnt survive the season.
