Choosing based on a coach is kind of short sighted. Parise will almost certainly get a long term deal and Pete DeBoer will probably no longer be coaching the Devils within 2-3 years.
Will take a meltdown of epic proportions or DeBoer pulling a Sutter for that to happen.
Burns would have been around a long time had he not gotten sick. Sutter might still be the coach had he not quit on us.
Despite Lou's reputation, the goal recently has been to find a young coach to be here long-term. That was the idea with Sutter (who quit) and Johnny Mac (who was a disaster).
