Same. He's done too much for the organization to not give him another chance. And we know he wouldn't want to leave the team with the current state it's in. When he does go, it will either be because he's in the ground or he has the team set up well for the future.
Let me preface this by saying I am, and always will be, grateful for everything that LL has done for this franchise. But his history with the devils is becoming an increasingly poor argument for keeping him. It's almost starting to starting to resemble MB's retirement debacle. LL has been here for a quarter of a century for this team has been clearly declining in many respects for a decade. Now think about that... that's 40% of his entire tenure has been a long, slow, painful decline punctuated by a really nice but totally aberrant SC run. In that time the scouting, drafting, and talent development have fallen to shambles. LL did a lot for this franchise, but it's over. For whatever reason he simply does not have "it" any longer. It happens to everyone eventually and this franchise has given him WAY more leeway in this regard than almost any other franchise would in any other situation. Can anyone else imagine another GM underperforming this badly and this long and still being allowed to keep his job?
