I have to concur on this. The BIGGEST problem in NJ is LOU's interference with the on ice operations and if I was the ref that's 2/5 and 10 for the same infraction since the lock-out, see ya Lou!
Lou it's a business BUT it's a GAME! The military style approach doesn't work anymore, even though Newark feels like a war zone it's no IRAQ/AFGHANISTAN!(SHOUT OUT'S TO ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE ARMED FORCES)
Everyone is suppose to have fun in Devil hockey not make fun of Devil hockey!! as we yet again, get shipped out in the first round!
Lou needs to worry about finding his replacement(GM 1st than Pres.) and it better not be his son! That person needs to be able to run the organization without interference from Lou and hire a coach he trusts to do the only thing that matters and that's winning the Cup by any means necessary. YZERMAN/MESSIER/GRETZKY etc. are all guys who would be capable and would bring instant credibility, attract the right coach and players that would WANT to play here.
Is it needed? yep, Do we want it? yep, Will it happen? That my friends IS, the true definition of a COLD DAY 'N' HELL!
On a side note, Johnny Mac should NOT be the next coach, it too should be from outside the organization and NOT be spelled HITCHCOCK(sorry Langs)/RENNEY/GAINEY/HARTLEY or KEENAN!!!!
DEVILS FAN FOR LIFE, DEATH TO LEAF NATION!
