In Topic: John Hynes of Pens AHL team expected to be Next coach.

Oates is not head coach material, and I don't think Stevens is ready yet.   I also don't think Lou wants to put the icon of our franchise in a place to fail before he is ready, which is probably why he didn't hire Marty as well.

The man built this franchise and turned the team from a "Mickey Mouse organization" to perennial contender.    He is our Vince Lombardi.

 

I believe he still has put us on the path to future success, but I think Shero is the right guy to put the final touches on the future Stanley Cup Champions!

 

IN LOU WE TRUST!

 

LGD!

In Topic: RAY SHERO = NEW GM. Coach decision is Shero's.

I think this is  a good move, especially with Lou being the President.

 

Shero made some really smart moves in Pitt, but he also had two of the leagues best players that he inherited.

 

Lou is still Shero's boss.   Just hoping Shero has a good eye for prospects at forward.

Another question is, when was the last time Lou was responsible for setting the team back?  The answer is never.  What set the team back was Kovy bailing, and Parise signing for Minny.  Neither are Lou's fault.  One was the fault of JVB, and the other was the "fault" of Parise.

 

I am in agreement up till the "fault" of Parise.   You have to blame this on JVB as well.   This was Parise's team, until JVB changed the culture of the team.

Elias isn't going anywhere.   He will probably be shifted to the checking center role, but with PP time.    He is a good teacher and good influence.    Would not be surprised that this will be announced as his last year and he joins the Devil front office in some capacity.

 

We have no impact player since Parise left.   I am hoping that Conte nails the draft this year and Lou can make a few trades with teams with Cap problems (like Garth Snow did this year).

 

I love our D, and our Goaltending.   We should be focusing upfront now.
