In Topic: Lou's Future

10 April 2015 - 04:08 PM

I'm not saying Lou should be fired. I think the case for him and against him are pretty even right now. The scales likely will be tipped for me this summer.


As owner, if you feel that way, I think you need to ask Lou what his general game plan is for this offseason. If it involves lots of short term fix ideas then I think you'd have to let him go. If it involves a long term philosophy then you let him keep the reins.

The owners are comfortable waiting in the NBA, and I assume they'll be comfortable waiting in the NHL, so I don't expect trading first round picks for 30+ year old players.

I'm guessing Lou knows the schedule played a big part in the teams record. Being behind the bench was more to learn about individual pieces than the W-L record, imo.

Not sure if Kovy's back could take the NHL pounding now.

Wider rink just means shots from further away and more passive defense.

The NHL should think about moving the blue lines closer. Shots wil come from closer to the goalie, more room for players to skate int the neutral zone, and more odd man rushes.
