He can't have been very old either, going by his picture. :(

Pretty interesting article by Gomer, he covers most of his career. Lots of positive things to say about the Devils, Lou, Stevens, Oates, etc. A couple of quotes stood out to me.

 

That was great, thanks for posting :)

Two more opportunities for Conte and Lou to draft for Albany's future 2nd line

 

I hate to agree with something so pessimistic, so I'll just say I don't disagree with this lol. Always hoping for the best though, pics are opportunities.

Sad to see him go, as he is one of my all time favorite players. Good for him though, and good for us.

Yes, remember the controversy a few years over the Newark superintendent of public schools? He was getting a salary of something like $200k+ and then huge bonuses that could boost it to over $300k not for actually raising grades or test scores, but rather to only create a plan for doing so.

There was a couple other performance bonuses that were obviously written to be impossible not to be accomplished, but just to make it so they could list his salary as being lower than it would end up. That backfired big time though.

Only in NJ, right? lol

 

Year 1- Create a plan to raise test scores, publish plan as proof of work at end of year

Year 2 - Design pieces needed to be implemented to introduce the plan into the schools

Year 3 - Design a plan to get the money to fund the plan outlined in Year 1

Year 4 - Get the money, and start working on components outlined in Year 2

Year 5 - Test the plan on a small scale, to see if it works

Year 6 - Determine plan (once implemented) lowers grades and now teaches children to take their shows off to count to 20, but roll out statewide anyway due to cost incurred in Year 4

Year 7- Create a plan to raise test scores, publish plan as proof of work at end of year

 

That's how you change curriculum in NJ! :)
