I was not comparing straight up. All im saying is that Lou has a lot more failure on his hands (quantity) than Chiarelli since the 05 lockout. And that one bad move shouldn't tip the scale and justify getting fired for one bad trade and missing the playoffs by like 2 points. 


The bruins has been a really well run franchise who won the cup recently. We've been a complete MESS for 5 years and weirdly got a cup run in the middle of that. Here's our track record


06: lost in round 2

07: lost in round 2

08: lost in round 1

09: lost in round 1

10: lost in round 1

11: out of playoffs

12: lost in round 4

13: out of playoffs

14; out of playoffs

15: out of playoffs


So we won 5 rounds of playoffs in 10 years. We went through like 10 coaches. We've lost Niedermayer, Rafalski, Gomez, Parise, Clarkson, Kovalchuk, Fayne, Gionta etc etc we've had terrible roster management that made us play down a man some night. We've gave up a top 12 pick cause Lou was too stubborn to give up on the 29th pick and picked a projected bottom 6 guy with it. Stuck with Salvador as a captain, signed a guy who almost got a concussion signing on the line. We're playing Fraser, and if Salvador would be healthy he'd take that spot, not any better. I wouldnt call that success and i'd call that really well justified to get you fired. Again im not saying Lou should be fired at the moment but he deserved it a lot more than Chiarelli. 


Chiarelli came in, they missed the playoffs his first 2 season which was fair and not his fault. Then they since won 10 rounds of playoffs, won the cup, made it to the finals another time and then missed the playoffs by like 1 or 2 pts. 


Brian MacLellan is still GM in washington right? The Forsberg trade is a LOT worst than the Seguin trade.


So yeah, i never said the Seguin trade was a good trade but i'd take that one mistake and all Boston's recent successover all the failures Lou accumulated in the last few years.


dude, the Devils could miss the playoffs for the next 4 years, F up their draft picks, and Lou would still run this franchise like he owns it, unchallenged. Nothing has changed with this franchise since the lockout and I doubt it will start now unless he calls it quits and retires. And from all indications, he's not looking to retire anytime soon.

Salvador feels like he can play next year.

Has he also thought that in previous years, because it wasn't true then, and probably ain't now.

If he is re-signed that is a travesty.

He's a "Lou guy" but I'm hoping that won't be enough to throw perfectly good money down the drain. Please NO.

One thing's for sure, the next coach will have to be ok being Lou's puppet. If the coach isn't someone who will buy into everything Lou says and stands for, it won't work.

Slasher, you're already complaining about 2017 season thinking Elias will be getting 5M...what???


He gets $5.5 mil now. What I'm saying is I don't want to see Lou sign him to an extension for the same salary for 2 years. A "rewarding loyalty" type of contract.


I'm not saying it's going to happen,  I'm just saying I don't want to see it happen. What is the harm in that statement?
