In Topic: Time for Marty to hang them up

Yep, what are we thinking. Marty has definitely lost it. By far the WORST Devil in this series.

This is why I say JL needs to stay. Give him a second year and see what he can do. I hate to call this a rebuilding year, but in a way you could almost chock it up to that. Call this the year it takes the players to get used to the system and move on. Next year will be better. This is my team, through thick and thin. I am not done with them by any means. I can't imagine myself ever rooting for any other team.

By no means do I think I am smarter then Lou or JL but these are my thoughts on what I think will happen. Lemaire will be here next year as will the majority of the team you see this year. Martin will most likely be back and we NEED him. I hope we can resign Kovy, not sure if we can get that done but I hope we can. Beyond that, I think Lou may need to reevaluate how he does some things on the business end. We all know Lou does not like to talk about extensions but I think he should extend Parise NOW rather then wait the year or two (I forget how much time he has left) and risk losing him to UFA or facing a nasty arbitration case. Lets lock up Parise long term, he is the future of this team.

I really think Mathew Corrente will be up here with the big club next year and will fit in well. Not sure who he would play with, but I definitely see him staying with the Devils all year.

Just my 2 cents, feel free to disagree. I realize I may not be making the most sense right now but its late. DEVILS IN 2011!!

I just posted this over on Hockeysfuture, but I thought I'd stick it here to.

I am not saying I am a HUGE Jacques Lemaire supporter. BUT, this team needs some friggin consistency in its coaching staff. Since JL was here from 1993-98, this team has not had a single coach that lasted more then 3 years behind the bench. THAT IS A PROBLEM. Let these players learn a system and get used to it. It is hard on players not knowing who there coach may be from season to season. And the worst of it, a few of the coaches were not let go after TERRIBLE seasons. Claude Julien was let go just prior to the playoffs during a year we were winning.

I realize there are exceptions, where Pat Burns and Larry Robinson both stepped down due to health concerns and we all know the Brent Sutter story. But the bottom line is this team needs some consistency in its coaching staff.
