Wasn't MacTavish just on TV last week saying that the team wasn't as bad as it's record suggested and the coach was safe?

 

"He's a good role model for our players. He's passionate about the game. And he's growing as a coach."

MacTavish said four coaches in five years is enough. The problem, he added, is the players' execution, and the accountability they face.

"The accountability on the players to execute on the ice has to improve ... our execution on the ice at critical moments."

This organization is a circus right now and a great example of why great players from "the good ol' days" don't necessarily make good managers/coaches/scouts.

In Topic: Looking back at the '11 Draft: Larsson was the right pick

As someone who has Nail Yakupov on a fantasy team, I'm not sure I would trade Larsson for Yak's 8 points and minus 13. 

 

As others have mentioned, it's too early to say who was worth picking and how players will look in a few years.

I don't know if that was Jagr's man, but he was doggin it on that backcheck.

Please fire Deboer.  The 2nd goal had no business going in the net.  No team makes those backdoor layup plays any easier than the Devils defense.  Those backdoor plays are supposed to be the most difficult play for attacking teams to pull off, and yet teams do it on a regular basis against the Devils.

 

There is no defensive structure with this team!  Deboer only cares about having the puck.

That was such a sloppy goal.

Sucks it didn't work out. But he couldn't score, couldn't defend and wasn't physical. It didn't work out with Deboer or really with Babcock (he got off to a fast start in DET and then fizzled if memory serves). A lot of players have played well under both of those coaches. Wish him the best back home.
