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

Every time I think about this team with Kovalchuk and Parise I really think we would be not only making the playoffs, but being close to Cup Contenders perennially. You're right, we're missing unfixable things because we're missing the kinds of players we don't have the opportunity to draft. We'd have to suck more for that, but it's tough to say that would even improve the team in the long run.

Exactly why I have not been happy of Lou's work lately, but at the same time dont and cant just give him the "full blame bomb". Parise not being signed because of Ilya's money was a huge blow, but to then lose Ilya too...how was it ever going to be possible to just replace these guys ?

Then again, that Ilya contract might be argued by some as being Lou's work and that his lack of vision lead to Parise leaving, but to be honest, I think Vanderbeek wanted a superstar and some pressure was applied on Lou to go and get the guy and even more to sign him at whatever's cost.

Lou: "I will not take any questions about whether I've done or haven't done certain things to the alleged victim, or give any comment whatsoever about what things were said, not said, or understood between myself and the victim prior to the events the prosecutor are claiming may have happened. Everything's status quo."

 

Prosecutor: "Are you pleading the fifth?"

 

Lou: "The response to your question will be provided in due time, but for now, everything's status quo and I have no comment."

Lou: Dont worry about my fifth !

I dont understand how some of you guys are talking about Kessel. I dont know if you heard, but the guy is a minus 100 when it comes to attitude and this is true regardless of the situation in Toronto. This is a guy who tells the reporters " I really dont care" when asked about the team.

Do you picture Lou even thinking of him ? We are talking about the guy that chooses YOUR number ! That inspects your face for facial hair ! 

Lou would've killed Kessel in his sleep and status Quoed the judge through his trial.
