imissricher: i got an andrew peters mystery puck last year - not sure i could have gotten a worse player.

DevsMan84: A puck signed by Leeroy at the concession stand would have been better.

This has "the hand of Lou" written all over it. So begins the long coaching search and the decreasing likelihood that Kovalchuk remains a Devil.


having lemaire return as coach probably hurt our chances of keeping kovulchuk. lou won't be able t sign him anyway, he was rental (the fallen messiah)

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease


CRASHER's official list of high stick victims from this forum:
gionta182, devilsfan26 .... WHO'S NEXT??

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

June 6, 2007... the NHL dies just a little bit.....
.. April 20, 2008...it gets a little better :)

I really don't think Johnny Mac is ready. He coached 1 flipping season as head coach.

I say Mac for 1 more year in Lowell and Lou coach this year.

I don't think it helps, Kovy had nothing but great things to say about JL. That said, Kovy is waiting until July 1st anyway so I don't think it matters.

Gotta admit, I jumped out of my chair in happiness when I heard the news! :D Jacques, you were great in 1995 and thanks for that, but your time is up. You failed last year when it mattered most. You had to pay.

I don't think Kovy stays. If he does, it'd be great to see a more offensive-minded coach, but I don't know. We'll just see what transpires.
