Theres your offensive leaders.

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.
I could buy this.

Hopefully he's not just saying that to satisfy us and the media.
This from the Newark Star Ledger:
New Jersey Devils hire Jacques Lemaire to be their new head coach
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.

You would have had to ask the Canucks for permission... and you might not have received it considering his contract has just been extended and he'll be returning to the Moose: http://www.theahl.co...rticle_id=10303
Personally, I would have talked with, Scott Arniel.
But that's just me.
IT IS VERY HARD TO WIN ONE STANLEY CUP, FORGET ABOUT THREE... and maybe it's high time some of you actually APPRECIATED THAT instead of treating it like it's some flipping birthright because for some random reason you rooted for the damn Devils!!!!!

Now that this is over and done with I guess the next question is. Will Lou make any moves?

Tremblay and Albelin will be also good behind the bench now as MacLean is the head coach of the Lowell Devils. Next move for MacLean now that he is a head coach in the AHL will be a head coaching job in the NHL, whether it will be with the Devils or not me thinks.

On the other hand, like many have already mentioned, Lemaire has a great mind for the game of hockey. One of the best in the business by far. Maybe not everyone agrees with his philosophy all the time but his knowledge for the game can not be denied.
Obviously this hiring doesn't have that "move toward the future" feel to it but that doesn't mean it will be bad. For as much sh*t people throw at Lou for putting together our current roster he really hasn't left us with a bad team. When has he ever? Maybe we finally have someone who will teach these guys how to fvcking win for once. For as skilled as some of the young talent is on this team they have absolutely zero clue as to what it takes to be a winner in this league. They sure as hell were not going to learn it from someone who's body was in New Jersey while his head was up some cows ass 3000 miles away. I for one am sick of watching very good teams completely sh!t the bed once the pressure is turned up.
It will be fine. It always is. Love the move or hate it, there is no sense bitching about it. Best to just move forward and support the team.
