In Topic: RAY SHERO = NEW GM. Coach decision is Shero's.

Yesterday, 04:11 PM

I've never once heard about a budgetary meeting for the Devils.  While that may just be a new thing that may not mean much, with a team in this position, it sounds like they are expecting the world or else they are bare minimum expenses.  These owners sound more and more like penny pinchers looking for short sighted gains or continued cheapness.  I still haven't seen anything otherwise.

 

"...We're going to want and ask for a ROI (return on investment) in terms of winning on our investment. So, if we are asked to make significant investments, we're going to make them when and if they make sense, but we're going to hold people accountable for those decisions.”

 

They sound callous and impatient to the process.  How can a GM really turn around anything in a short amount of time without buying into the process?

are you kidding? you never may have heard about a "meeting" but Lou would always say, "ownership has given me the ability to do whatever we need" which in truth was bullsh!t anyway. you're looking for issues with these owners when, to this point, there are NONE. well, unless you blame them for getting rid of RR part 2 so you can't chant YOU SUCK.

 

these guys are the opposite of impatient. if they were impatient, you'd get pegula like moves signing antoine vermette to a 5 year $25MM deal. they've already said that their willing to invest time into building a long term winning team (see Chicago as an example).

 

everything you read basically says "rebuild" without using the word.

the devils still have to ice a team. as the return for elias won't be that much, i can't see the sense in dealing him before the deadline, if at all.

my buddy was embarrassed for his countrymen today. "you can't do that. it's just wrong."

I would be good with a design similar to current team canada jersey with D E V I L S written in diagonal block and maybe to logo patch on the shoulders.

i'm sorry - if you have a beef with these owners, you have to be blind. a group that will look to spend on all facets of the team and arena and has the financial ability to do so while still trusting hockey people to do their job? yeah, i don't want anything to do with that.

 

let lou figure it out? the team is where it is right now because of lou. this was the right move at the right time.
