Boucher or Kowalsky probably.  Although Boucher is a HC in the Swiss League now.  Not sure he could get out of it.

Let's get Torts.


The veterans would wilt and revolt under him.  Jagr, Elias, Zubrus, Clowe, Cammalleri wouldnt want to play for him.

We stayed aggressive after Merrill's goal.  We were attacking fine.


Optimistic Ollie is back!

When your system stops attacking that's going to happen. This isn't 1997 like Lou still thinks it is. They either play strong and get a lead or slack and then pick up the urgency when they fall behind. 


Veteran teams can't sustain a high-octane attacking system.  They lose it by the 3rd period.

I was going to make this thread tomorrow morning after we had all cooled down but.. fvck is this man pissing me the fvck off.

Why was Larsson benched in the third? Why was Zidlicky playing after his embarrassing turnover? WHY WERE OUR TWO WORST DEFENSEMEN PAIRED TOGETHER


Larsson might very well go back to Sweden tomorrow.  The treatment of him is bordering on ridiculous.  I would absolutely go to Lou and ask him to trade me if I were Larsson.

That's it...enough. This is Deboers 4th season as Devils coach and the constant never-ending theme is blown leads blown leads and more blown leads. This team is so undisciplined and mentally weak in its own zone when trying to hold a lead. It happened in Philly to start the season (3-0 to 3-3) heck even in Tampa we were up 1-0 with about 10 to go and blew that. And the personnel changes but the results never do. They never do. Add in his bizarre, maddening roster management and the fact that we've missed the playoffs in consecutive years (unheard of for this franchise) and this year they're a penalty taking machine with no ability to kill penalties (something else that the Devil usually always do well not take penalties and KILL THEM when they do take them)


Up 3-1 to the Rags and we leave a point on the table. This was HIDEOUS.


All the good feelings of the 3-0 start are now history and we're long past the afterglow of the 2012 cup run.


You know Lou is stewing after this one. Now I don't expect any knee jerk moves from him as that's not his style. Deboer won't be on his ass tomorrow. But I think this game better start a clock in Lou's head, where if they're not playing up to capability by a certain date then Deboer is a goner. 




Glad you started this.  I wanted to vomit when I saw Gionta out there.


Also, you can't exclusively blame the defensive breakdowns on the young guys.  A lot of the time its Greene, Salvador, Zidlicky out there.
