I like the fact MacLean is back working for the Devils to some degree.  I think he makes a good assistant coach, and I think he'll be a good analyst.  

 

I also think he was handcuffed by Lou during his short head coaching stint, and was dealt a bad hand.

Some kinks need to get worked out, but overall I'm really happy with the effort.

along with his offense there were PLENTY of times he looked like a total mess in his own end.. saying that if the team wants to win games he should be in the line up all year is certainly crazy though.. this team does not need a rookie dman who is a train wreck half the time in his own end to win games.. as of right now the only real upside of him is that wicked shot. With that said, i wouldnt mind if he were to be packaged up in a trade for a half way decent return.

 

Problem is, he wasn't a trainwreck like you guys think.  He was solid defensively when he was paired with Larsson.  When he was paired with Merrill after Larsson got hurt is when you saw a decline in his defense.  Merrill was just as much of a liability as Gelinas was.  Also people forget Niedermayer was a liability defensively in his early years.  In fact he didn't become good defensively until after the 2000 cup.
