Yes just lets make the worst possible assumptions about a front management who has been in charge for only a few months and who is making one good decision after the other.
You didn't understand what I wrote. No, I'm not cryptic - you all just rush through until you get the chance to blab whatever you want to. I do it too. But if you respond it will be with some defensive bullsh!t as if I even care what you think of me or what you have to say
What I wrote (in more plain English for the slow folks) is that the new owners are making very typical NHL business decisions. Yes, Shero and his crew will hit a rough patch and will be fired when that happens. There will be no margin for error allowed for anyone - just as I'm sure none of you here (not self-employed or working for family) has any margin for error in their job. Profit above all. That has absolutely NOTHING to do with any sh!t assumptions about Ray Shero and his crew. It is society today. I choose to live my life in a different way. Marty chose to manage his career in a different way. Marty didn't slam the Devils. Neither did I. This just isn't a Devils organization I feel any loyalty too. And why should I? I said from the start I was here for Devils hockey. For the game of hockey. This is the organization and the game of 21st century NHL. Hockey is secondary. If you're thrilled with the team's moves it's because you love your home state above hockey, which I totally approve of - it's a great reason for unearned loyalty, or you like the NHL more than you do hockey. The people who write on this board are NHL fans - but this is no surprise to me. The NJ fans stopped writing long ago.
AND I am happy to follow this new organization. I may end up loving them myself once they hit the ice. BUT I am kind of interested in seeing what Babcock does with Lemaire's insights and I think it's cute he asked Lou to bring him on -- that's what it sounds like to me. I think it's great Lou has a lesser role in the Leafs day to day stuff - very smart. they know what they have. I just find the leafs more compelling at this point.
I understand complete why Shero wanted to clean house. But it's coming off weak and underconfident - the owners have positioned him carefully under the bus forcing everyone to say Lou hired him and this was Lou's choice, thus making Shero out to be some lame backstabbing a$$hole. Bad way to start things out -- and now Shero's just going to get defensive and weaker as this team fails despite his changes. He flailed around in Pittsburgh when the organization started to blame him for the failures. I felt bad for the guy. and may I remind you: YOU all are the ones saying "Sure he'll fail - it's the players that suck - but we gotta give him a chance" not me. If you are correct in your estimation of the coming season - yes - this 2 month old management staff is destined for failure -- through absolutely NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN. and of course I'm right... I'm always right anyone who reads what I write knows it too
Leafs are going to crash and burn with hockey intelligence style and I just think it's going to be more fun to watch - I'll learn more about hockey.
