I guess I owuld expectthem to say that now, although I hope they are looking at the last 5 to 8 years and keeping him on a really short leash, 3 years of no playoffs is unheard of in NJ...
No it's not. This team didn't make the playoffs between 1982 and 1987. It's unheard of in the Lou Lamoriello era of NJ Devils hockey.
People seem to forget (or weren't old enough to remember) how bad this team was before he arrived and basically built this entire organization from the ground up. Our run has ended and it's time to rebuild the team again. Maybe Lou isn't the right person to do it in today's NHL environment. Maybe the game has passed him by. I'm willing to put my money on him and give him a chance at turning this around though.
