#784692 So, Who's Left?

I dont think they will trade Bergfors.. I think they will let him play and ultimately he will be on a line with Elias and Rolston.

I know Jacques is used to having Rolston on the wing, but he is a decent center.. or they move Elias to Center to create more space.

Pando will be playing. Especially with Lemaire as coach. He will be on the 3rd line with Shanny.


if this happens, i'm sure someone can wait outside pando or shanahan's car with a crowbar. the devils cannot have jay pandolfo and brendan shanahan playing on a third line.


I would think Jay would be the extra foward and rotate with PL3... but he's getting paid 2.5m/yr to be an extra?? Lou won't have that.

The devils might not even sign shanny.. and if they dont.. that puts Pando on line 3

#784381 John MacLean looking forward to new challenge as head coach in Lowell

"I think it's a good move for me, an opportunity to be a head coach and go down and get some learning experience as far as handling my own team," he said today after the morning sessions of the Devils' rookie camp at Prudential Center..

MacLean believes the experience of being the head coach in Lowell will help him progress as a coach.

"I don't think it's going to hurt me to have it," he said. "I've been an assistant coach here for a few years. This is something that people look at who measure you by head coaching experience. Well, I have the head coaching experience. It's just another thing to have and it will be a positive."

MacLean said it was "definitely a possibility" that he could have remained in New Jersey as an assistant under Lemaire.


I think this is a great step, not only for him but for Lowell and developing players. He has NHL assistant experience, knows the players, knows the system. He has been an assistant with alot of great coaches with different styles. Hopefully this works out. Can't be any worse than the other coach's down there.
