Brooks who has always been very praiseworthy of Lou pretty much called him out a few months ago for the situation the team finds itself in. Even Pierre McGuire was pretty critical of the Devils recently. The media is starting to take notice finally.
I'm not saying I disagree with Chere in regards to lou should step aside soon, but what he goes after lou is ridiculous and what I read all the time on facebook, Twitter and here.
I mentioned the parise situation specifically. Chere is getting on him for not re-signinf him during the season before he bolted. He never mentions that he was about to until his agent told him to wait until free agency. He also neglects the fact that JVB had no money to sign another monster contract with parise after the Kovy contract (he does briefly mention JVB finances as a possibility but a few paragraphs after). Oh and he also gets on lou for the bad signings like for Clowe and Ryder but doesn't mention the contract parise eventually got which could very well be an even bigger albatross of a contract a few years down the line.
And yeah I agree the marketing thing is petty and this is coming from me who has gone after lou for the marketing in the past. If anything Lou should be held accountable to the on-ice product and his timr is quickly coming to an end here, but Chere needs to be a little more objective and fair to Lou when he wants to tear him a new one in a click bait article

This. I'm glad someone else can actually notice the big picture, and look at things rationally.
No team ever unloads, even the really bad teams. A team like Buffalo might sell off 1 or 2 key guys, and that's it. I also never said anything about buying or selling. I simply said trade. So there was no reason to believe I would want a trade to make the playoffs.
I would rather miss the playoffs and get a shot at a possible generational talent than make the 8th spot to be one and done.
Even if we only have a 2% chance at getting that #1 pick if we miss the playoffs I'm all in for that. I know you would appreciate that because of you being an advocate of low percentage chances.
Alas, the you suck people. The reason we can't have nice things.

The way the FB Devils fans make it seem, they really NEED the "you suck" part. It's the air that they breath and without it they are suffocating and having their fan experience ruined by the inability to shout in unison with thousands of other man-childred "you suck"
