Saw this link tweeted by Greg Wyshynski....

Jacques Lemaire might be behind the bench of the New Jersey Devils, tonight, replacing John MacLean.

According to Michel Langevin, Jacques Lemaire was to fly Thursday morning to be able to resume coaching the collar at night when the Devils host the New York Islanders, the team that's ahead ... au 29e rang de la LNH. 29th among the NHL.

with his defensive style, we actually have a shot if we hunker down in our own end all of the game and wait for a break out.

Wow we need some sort of change?? as a Temp coach I like it, not as permenent coach, maybe he can light a fire under the players?

Oh please let this be true. Not as anything against MacLean. I just wanna see what dastardly head games Lemaire has thought up with all that time off. And hopefully he has a badass evil stache now too so he can twist the ends of it while maniacally chomping his bubblegum of doom.

I won't believe it until someone credible reports it, like TG. If it did turn out to be true I think Langs is as good as gone.


obviously it's hard to believe, but i want to believe..


I had the X-files theme pop into my head after reading this comment. lol

I'll take it at this point - at least Jacques is better at press conferences.

he's still on the payroll so technically it wouldn't cost us extra.

The rumor translated from French that I read, said MacLean quit after 33 games, but it was a translation so who knows. Probably all just a rumor, though I would like to see it happen.
