I cannot and will not acknowledge this team going forward. Not after how they treated Lou. The man should have been given the choice to be GM until he was ready to retire. 3 Stanley Cups and a decade and a half of ongoing success have earned him that!

The owners did show respect for Lou they kept him on as President of hockey operations with the GM reporting to him. No way Shero brings in Chris as AGM he would be surrounded by Lams


The man's powers have been stripped. How is that showing him respect!!?? Lou was poised to turn everything around, starting with this upcoming draft and free agency period. But he gets cast aside right before he has the chance to do so. Fvck these owners and fvck this team.

Simply the best. Ever.

But in all honesty, we shouldn't even be having this discussion. The fact that Lou was forced out of the GM position on this team is a travesty. I'm sorry, but I'm just finding it very difficult to like this team going forward after the disrespectful stunt these owners pulled. I may just follow another sport until they leave or Lou is reinstated. At least show some respect for Lou and bring his son Chris into the fold as Assistant GM under Shero. It's the least they could do. Just pathetic.

I wish someone like Dr. McMullen was our owner. At least he recognized genius when he saw it and didn't meddle. Lou had a plan to get us back to greatness but these 2 stooges will ruin and dismantle everything and cause us to be a laughingstock. I seriously will not and cannot watch another game. I won't root for another team because I bleed red & black. But I will just refuse to watch.

Lou being forced upstairs was the ultimate disrespect. What a joke.

I see a lot of parallels

A. Inability to draft forwards
B. Inability to hold onto biggest UFA (Parise for Lou and Hossa for Shero)
C. Overvaluing stay at home dmen (To Lou's credit, he has gotten away from this)
D. The focus on NA players

The owners made a big mistake forcing Lou upstairs, he had a plan, and was executing it quite well. The Devils have tons of cap space going forward, they have an elite goalie, and a stable of young d-men. I hope Shero doesn't botch the groundwork Lou has put in place.


I agree. The owners absolutely suck. Telling Lou to lose his GM responsibiities is the ultimate disrespect. What the hell do they know in comparison? Lou is a legendary GM and is the smartest man in the business. He built this franchise into what it is today and is responsible for their 3 Cups, take it or leave but that's the truth. But these two buffoons buy the team and cast him aside like he's irrelevant. I can't watch this team anymore. I'm done.
