Changing the roster - what can only be mere tweaks no matter what anyone argues - Fraser makes or breaks the team? No. Skoula makes or breaks the team... :blink: Nnnnno. Not one guy makes or breaks things here.

They have passion, they respect the organization, they understand the system intellectually. They are capable of putting it all together

What I see, the ONLY thing I see --- they just don't understand what they're actually DOING when they do succeed. "All the right things" is meaningless. The little things is meaningless. Now as a coach you cannot rest on one lesson - one catch phrase, one speech, one sh!t fit wherever or whoever it's from -- motivational speaking isn't going to do anything. I don't think it's a lost cause at all -- I feel like they can put it all together. I have no idea how they will -- but it's completely possible. I'm not sure of the probability of it all - I'm not being sarcastic,

I think maybe -- part of me wants to just make it all technical - technical literal positioning -- you know, but these guys - a pull of focus of one half inch and a dude like Rolston is just GONE he's completely taken out of the picture...and can't see the way back in, not during the play much less the period much less an entire GAME. He's sort of the personification of what I see as the general problem of the whole team. It's very obvious with him. With a Langenbrunner it can all get mired down - the technical gets clouded by his defensive arguments - Maybe Jamie should think of my old quote from Richard Bach -- "Argue for your limitations and they're yours"

Focus just cannot be on fixing problems - all the stuff everyone is debating it's the exact WRONG thing for this team at this point in time.

I just dont agree with any one full picture or solution being bandied about here -- no one has hit the nail on the head.

funny how during the last 10 games or so I kept saying in the chat room that these lines need to get solidified, then need some chemistry going into the playoffs, and all I kept getting from the experts was how it wasnt an issue, they are pros they will be fine, it might be good mixing the lines up because the opposition wont know who to defend against??? Now it seems these guys arent playing with "chemistry" hmmmm I guess nobody could see this coming??

the devils have 10 players signed for 2011-12 and 3 for 2012-13, so it is going to be a new bunch of players, one way or another.

Fair enough, but some of those 10 players signed in 2011-12 are the ones who have been really disappointing in the playoffs. 2012-13 is the first year where real addition by subtraction can take place, and Lou is the kind of person to bring back some of the older, more problematic players. Do you really see Lou letting go of some of the players in the next few years who have played so gutlessly? He seems to bring back just enough to prevent the team from making a real run.
