"No no no I didn't say that stuff. That was another Fitz."

Fvck it, you get the rarely seen tribute meme.  

I might not be into jerseys as hardcore as you, mfitz, and CR76, but I appreciate the knowledge you guys bring on them. I only bought jerseys from NHL Shop before finding this board. Didn’t know about

I mean, yeah me too, but no team in the league has that, and it's not necessary/required to win a Stanley Cup.  

MOAR PATRICK KANES!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently the consensus #1 for this coming draft is supposed to be even better than Hughes.

Yup. That’d be good. Not willing to tank an entire season after 6 games though. 

Building the hockey equivalent of the GS Warriors does sound enticing if it means sacrificing a couple more years of complete suckage.

This, and I also don't understand the logic of wanting to lose to fire the coach. Isn't the goal to win no matter who is coaching? If they're winning you won't want to fire him... Cause they're winning. So just win lol. 

EDIT : Not to mention we're only 6 games in and people are already writing off the entire season and looking at the draft. Like bruh, up to like December last year Buffalo lead the league, they ended up not even making the playoffs. 

Just listened to Fitzgerald interview and you can tell he knows what he’s talking about unlike Hynes he has the same donkey answers every interview and looks lost. So yes lose wtv you need to In order to get rid of him once and for all

Fitzgerald saying in his interview "Right now we are trying to find solutions from within to right this ship"  I think confirms what we are all thinking, Hynes is on borrowed time. 

When one of your bosses comes down to the bench to oversee, that’s exactly what it means.

Additionally I think it's a case of getting the guy who is going to be the interim coach of this team involved as early as possible. 

In his interview without any prompting Fitz starts talking about maintaining continuity. Why would you say that if big change wasn't in mind?

Yeah, I don't mean to repeat myself from earlier, but this isn't just, "Let's bring another voice in." The assistant GM puts on skates, it's not about just adding a voice of positivity to the group - he's going down to the ice to make a diagnosis. Who, if anyone, is the weak link? Don't get me wrong, the team can use his experience - he was a responsible two-way forward in the league himself - but if he has to come down to coach then that negates the whole point of paying a coaching staff.

If the team delivers a loss tomorrow and another to Vancouver - you might see Hynes go but don't be surprised if Kowalsky, Nasreddine and/or Grier is dismissed first.

Hynes may be on the hot seat but I don't think it's imminent as in a game or two away.  If they fired him this weekend then Fitz would literally have had like three days with the team, I doubt that's really enough to get a full understanding of what's going on.  I think you're talking about 7-10 games for a change now, and that might be too late to save the season if this keep spiraling badly.  I also don't think he's JUST here to watch the coaches.

Of course there's the possibility they pick it up at least short term with everyone on probation at this point and then a move really won't be imminent at that point.

I agree a move like this buys some time - but the Devils need a win still - if the Devils lose the next two games and go into the break 0-6-2, I think there's a good chance you could see a change - and by then Fitz will have been able to form an opinion about what's going wrong on the ice in regards to coaching.

I think the only thing the Fitz move guarantees is that Hynes gets at least two more games until the five game break.  I don't think it should take him that long to figure out that Hynes is or is not beyond saving especially based on the results on Thursday and Saturday.

According to Ray, Hynes came to him to ask for Fitz to join them on the coaching staff. Maybe not what we thought but I am not sure what to think.

I saw that mentioned a few times earlier too. @MadDog2020 where's that gif of yours, I need it.

Too many cooks in the kitchen. I really don’t see how this works unless Fitz is the de facto head coach now. Coaches are incredibly territorial. I don’t think they would put him there to babysit. Is this moneyball and Hynes isn’t using the players properly? 

So strange.

I don’t find it so strange. Management is trying to figure out what Hynes is doing wrong and whether it can be fixed. This is not a long term situation.
