geez some people are so uptight here lol This is the internet folks. Theres people sh!tting in others mouth, videos of people eating toe nails, people getting killed by gorillas... avril lavigne videos...
There's way worst to be shocked about than buddie's thread title lol
I didn't mean to imply race really had anything to do with it - I just think the results speak for themselves.
If you have a choice of picking an apple from three trees (to keep it simple), and you've picked quite a few rotten ones from tree A, why would you feel inclined to keep picking apples from that first tree?
we got nothing good out of any trees in the last 10 years. Doesnt really matter at this point
how can i possibly relax, you just acknowledged me, thats huge. Coolest guy on the internet actually acknowledged me. This is unreal. I gotta call a few people, gotta have to take screen shots. Theres no way they'd believe me.
The problem with some of these posts are - they hey at least we aren't the leafs, or we did better than we were projected.
The real issue is the mismanagement of the team. I don't think it completely falls on Lou, but he is partially to blame. We have like 9 NHL defensemen some we can't properly develop. We have a bunch of 2nd/3rd/4th liners on the team. Obviously we are a team that will live and die by the 1 goal game and you'd think Lou would do more to get better shootout guys. When the Pens picked up Jokinen last yr on waivers, he would have been perfect for us for the shootout. Lou would rather have a guy like Clowe - who although I like what he brings to the table, he isn't going to light anything on fire.
The whole brodeur/schneider thing has been a mess and total mismanagement as well.
I think it's time for the Marty/Lou/DeBoer show to go and time to fully transition into a new era. Now i dont think we need to rebuild, but we need to move past some of the Devils stubborn habits of the past that won't get us anywhere
Great post, im really enjoying seeing people starting to turn the corner about Lou. He was great and all but way too many people we're almost scared to say anything bad about him as if it was a sacrilege or something and we're in total denial defending all his bad moves.
Im a kind of guy that will call a cat a cat, when Lou deserves credits i'll give it to him no problem. But i certainly won't close my eyes on the bad ones either. Not that i expect him to be perfect but most of his big mistakes we're not things that didnt pan out, they we're mostly all decision made out of stubborness. Which is what pissing me off so bad about him.
I and we always will be thankful for what he did in the past but that's really in the past now and since the lockout he really didnt do much.
