TSN Interview with Lou

21 September 2015 - 11:03 PM

It's 28 minutes... which is a surprise to begin with... hard to imagine Lou sitting down for that long for a media interview.




He talks about the last five years with the Devils starting at 3:50. He attributes missing the playoffs four of the last five years to losing "certain types of people because of the status of the franchise". I'm assuming that's Zach and because we were poor? I've heard people speculate about that but that's the first I've heard Lou say it himself (kind of).


On team rules:


-9:20 "I've never had a written rule in 28 years." Doesn't say which of his rules will come along to Toronto. Says everyone will agree on the rules. If someone wants to grow a beard this year can they? "You'll just have to wait and see."


-Team flights will no longer allow team broadcasters on the flights in Toronto.


-11:35 - He's asked if he once didn't allow Nets minority owners on a flight with the team. "I don't recall that situation happening."


-20:15 If the Leafs are fighting for a playoff spot at the deadline... are you buying or selling?: "You really expect me to answer that question?"


"I really don't have an answer for that." - most other questions 


Focuses mostly on the Leafs... I've mentioned about all of the Devils stuff.
