General manager Lou Lamoriello did not comment on the reasons behind the move or a possible replacement for DeBoer. In a release, the Devils said there would be no further comment until after Lamoriello addresses the team Saturday morning.
That's great that he should tell the team first, but this business of keeping the fans in the dark is getting really old. Where's all the people claiming that as "paying fans" we all have the right to know what's going on with the team? Now's as good a time as ever to make that assertion...
What exactly are Lou's/The Management's motives here?! Just say F the rest of the season and start fresh next year? Firing PDB, if that was going to happen anyway, should have been done last off-season and a new coach installed before camp. There's no way this setup will come together in time
