I don't understand all of the zajac hate constantly. Yes we need him to put more points and goals up for us. ..but his contract isn't really our of line for what it is that he does. If he was on a team that produced more he wouldn't be viewed the way that he is by most people, he plays a solid defensive game ..and he's not payed like a #1 center..it's not his fault he is forced to play that role on the team its the teams for not having a true first line center.
how awesome of lou to put out that letter to the fans in the paper.. truely classy! ill miss the team having this guy as the "boss" but im excited to see certain things change like our fan experience side of things
i hope now as fans that we get to see a little more of the "behind the scenes" type of stuff, i remember when the stadium series games were going on they had a couple tv shows and each team got air time of locker room and behind the scenes stuff...every team but the devils, and i always felt shorted when it came to stuff like that. Lou wouldnt allow any of that so i hope that experience gets better for us now
For the first time EVER it feels like the Devils are rudderless. Even during this sh!tty run of 2012-now, I always felt deep down...Lou will figure it out, Lou will change with the times, everything is OK as long as Lou is here, the good times won't last forever, he can right the ship.
Now he's gone, new ownership has forced him out and all of a sudden...it's like I don't know these Devils anymore.
I suppose it might work. It did when Jerry Jones kicked Landry to the curb, it didn't when the Isles forced Torrey out.
I think this ownership group did show patience with Lou. 3 straight years of no playoffs and no forwards at all is patient enough. Still if you'd ask me who I have more faith in going forward Lou/Conte or Shero/?...I'd say Lou.
