He did, but Lemaire also got a fair amount of blame for not letting Nieds take more chances.
True, Lemaire did get flack for that. But I remember soooo many fans wanting to trade Nieds. It was ridiculous how impatient people were being. The moral of the story is that defensemen take a long time to develop. Larsson just recently became legally able to drink. People need to relax about his development.
well someone hasnt taken their medication..clearly.. take a fvckin breather boss, if you cant figure out why a lot of fans are frustrated with this guy then i dont know what to tell you..maybe your blind or deaf? there is plenty of reason to feel aggravated with a lot of sh!t around here the past couple seasons. Our fan base doesnt get to enjoy a lot of things that others do because lou doesnt allow it.. we miss out on a lot that other fans get to see ..that is aggravating as well like when they had that whole documentary thing leading up to the stadium series the other teams had all kinds of behind the scenes footage and what did we have.. NOTHING. a short clip taken on jagrs cell phone that wasnt even in english.. but that has nothing to do with why were all annoyed with player decisions and moves.. rant over.. take a chill captain butt hurt this is a forum board for people to discuss things.. youve clearly spent a good chunk of your life posting on here with over 14,000 posts someone like you should understand what is done on these sites.
Someone that takes a bit more risk instead of filling up the roster with 3rd and 4th liners because they're safe bets. Do you think for one second that if not for JVB Lou would have signed Kovalchuk?
And how do we know Quenneville is a 3rd or 4th liner? That's all Brendan Lemeiux projects as. Would you have rather seen us go with Barbashev instead? I mean, I don't get it- everyone agrees we need to take a forward. So we do. A pretty decent one at that, given that we were picking 30th (not 3rd, 30th). And still people aren't happy. I have a feeling people would be bitching and moaning no matter who we took. If we took Lemeiux it would've been 'oh Lou did the predictable thing and drafted Pep's kid, typical Lou'. If Lou took a defenseman it would've been 'stupid Lou took a defenseman, typical stupid Lou.' If Lou took a goalie it would've been 'dumb-ass Lou took a fvcking goalie at 30, typical idiot Lou'. He can't win around here. I really don't know exactly what the hell everyone wanted out of the 30th pick in a weak draft...
