Right now this is not something that anybody is going to panic about.

At a quick glance, the title of this thread made me think there was some rumor involving Steve Ott coming to Jersey. All I saw was "Lamoriello" and "Devils" and "move" and "Ott".

Lou should have come out and said that there was definitely going to be a shakeup. Perhaps that might light a fire under some players' asses. I know we don't know what goes on behind closed doors but we have too many guys who think that they're tenured.

Haha thanks.

I was kind of expecting Lou to do SOMETHING with the board of governors meeting happening, but I suppose it's just not his style...

Why? Steve Ott's the type of player we all hoped Clarkson would become (score 15-20 goals, 35-40 points and play nasty), but right now Clarkson's not doing any of the above - ergo we could actually use a guy like Ott.

The torment continues...we need a Defenseman in the worst way....and a coach, and a center...a winger and enforcer would be nice too.... :angry:

that's what he's done with his roster construction - none of these guys are answers.

its why i said after the pitt loss, this team's motto (other than my hashtag of #operation1stoverall) should be "Answers will be Questioned".

Lou's the Donald Rumsfeld of hockey.
I expect his next press conference to be one with memorable quotes such as, "There are known knowns there are things we know that we know.
There are known unknowns;that is to say,there are things that we now know
we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns;there are things we do not know we don’t know." He'll also tell us that he knows where our talent is and that it's somewhere north, south, east and west of the Rock. When asked about the team he'll respond, "We have to go with the team we have not the team we wish to have."

What Lou really means is that he tried, but no one wanted the dreck on this team.

With Lou yet to make a move I am starting to think that he can't find an offer that is even remotely considerable.

I'm thinking Lou knows he's going to have a bit more leverage come the deadline.

At this point what can anyone expect in return? Langenbrunner is not getting younger, is at the end of a contract, and is not performing up to capabilities. Does anyone honestly expect a 1st round pick or a possible proven player in return?

Rolston/Zubrus/Elias/White are in the same boat. Add Brodeur too

If the team is that dreadful, then Lou should consider trading for whatever he can get. At least he will take their contracts off our hands and make us free to "wiggle" in the offseason.

The other option is waiving those guys so they're not part of the team, although their money will still be on the books.

It's the biggest quagmire of Lou's career. I'm afraid there's no solution. None.

He asked players to waive their no-trades, only to get negative responses in return from other teams.

There's a serious morale issue on the Devils, and I'm afraid there's no way out.

I honestly think Langy and Clarky will get us a prospect from Toronto, they love giving away picks for no good reason.
