SIGN CARBO!!!

Carbo is a horrible choice. He just took Canada's U-18 team to a 6th place finish last week.

Ftorek?

Julien?

Which one failed or bailed?


Clearly Ftork failed, otherwise he would have his name etched on the Cup.

Julien???? To me that is a mystery.

I think it has to be someone that will implement a strong forcheck while teaching players to be good two way players as well.

The team HAS to get faster.

I'd really like to see Tedenby and Urbom get legit shots now.

I've said it a few times. I'd really like the team to go after Matt Lombardi this offseason. Blazing speed and one of the best skaters in the league. If the Devs re-sign Kovy, Lombardi would be a great center that could actually keep up with Kovy and he would be semi-cheap.

DUMP: McAmmond, Niedermayer, Pandolfo, Mottau

ACQUIRE: Lombardi

CALL UP: Tedenby, Urbom, Eckford, Corrente

Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Kovalchuk-Lombardi-Elias
Rolston-Zubrus-Tedenby
Zharkov-Sestito/Walter-Clarkson

Palmieri, Leblond

Martin-Eckford
Salvador-Greene
Corrente-White

Salmela, Fraser

Brodeur
Danis (Frazee, McKenna)

Yes, I'm bored.

As the guy who started pushing Haviland's name last year, of course I want to see the 2005 Kelly Cup champion coach here.

Ask any of the ole Trenton Titans fans here, I'm sure they'll tell you too.

I believe Ftorek's name is indeed etched on the Stanley Cup.

In a couple years if he's been successful, I'll put my support behind J Mac. For now, I don't think I want any new blood behind the bench. I wouldn't mind a guy like Andy Murray. St. Louis had the 8th best PP in the league last year one year after having the worst. It might take him a little while to get going but I think he could do well.

Scott Stevens doesn't deserve to coach the Devils. Has he even been behind the bench as an assistant anywhere?

I think Stevens deserves to coach the Devils he just shouldn't We're trying to fix our offense here.

GM's (or owners I forget who) can petition to have certain people on the cup who wouldn't otherwise qualify. Like backup goalies or players who got injured for most of a season or I guess in this case a fired coach. I think there is a virtual HD quality SC somewhere though that we could look at.

Yup it's there. 4th line down 2nd name to the right, before V. Bure.

Right, Stevens should be coach ahead of MacLean.

I'm not a Mac supporter, but the suggestion is ludicrous. This thread has some real gems in it.

I've made it known that I have been a Johnny Mac supporter for a while. I wanted him to be the head coach last season, but thought the idea of him going to Lowell for a year or two until Lemaire's contract ended (or retired) was not a bad idea. A lot of people last year didn't like the idea of MacLean because they saw him running the bench in 2006 and 2007 to sub par results. But isn't it interesting now when you think about it that the 2006 and 2007 Devils have been the most successful teams post lockout. Both teams made it out of the 2nd round before being bounced to teams representing the East in the Stanley Cup Finals, while the next 3 teams all got eliminated in the first round. And barring some ridiculous run by Philly, none of those teams will be getting very close to the Finals or winning the Cup like the 2006 Canes team did. It is also worth noting that the 2009 and 2010 Devils teams were much superior to the 2006 and 2007 team.

Just some food for thought.
