Colorado Rockies 1976 Posted March 17, 2022 Share Posted March 17, 2022 32 minutes ago, DevsMan84 said: A part of me still wonders if Fitz is indeed being handcuffed by ownership. That would at least explain the current state of the coaches. I can see the owners not wanting to pay a "relieved of duties" Ruff and the replacement coach as well as having assistant coaches who are willing to work for on the cheap (relatively). These owners are all about ROI and I am talking about profit and not wins/losses. I can absolutely see them spend up nearly to the cap ceiling only to cheap out with pretty much every else around the team (coaching, conditioning team, scouting, etc). We've said it a bunch, but I really hope the plan is to can this staff (ALL of them), and then bring up Dineen and give him considerable say in picking the assistants...with Utica having a fine season and a coaching change not likely to help in-season (given the goalie issues), I'll live with The Three Stooges serving out the remainder of this season with the big club, but they better be gone within a week of the Devils' season ending. If nASS sticks around, then I need an explanation as to why...of course, since the Devils don't allow anyone to ask them tough questions, I don't expect them to allow the press to ask what we're all thinking: "Nasreddine has been with the organization for several years, and even with some clear upgrades on defense, play in the Devils' end continues to be a serious problem, with player often left uncovered for wide-open chances. Why should we believe that Nasreddine is the right person to solve this issue, as it has continually been one during his time here?" 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
