Doug's lack of interest and his gliding back on D is a concern, there should never be an appearance of a lack of  effort especially from the new  guy with the biggest wallet and highest  expectations back there imo.  Obviously he's more known as a offensive D but sh*t, do better.

With the exception of Tatar and Johnsson (I just don’t think they bring anything) and the “temporary warm body” goalies, I’m willing to give just about everyone else who’s still here next season a clean slate once a new staff is in place.  I’m sure some guys are mentally spent…not saying it’s right, just the reality.

Got it. 

I just disagree when it comes to established vets who've been around especially someone like him. He didn't or shouldn't have forgotten how to try hard every night or the fundamentals of playing the game. I just don't put it all on the coaches. Sure they suck but come on we're seeing some brain dead instinctual stuff now all season. Give the kids a pass sure I guess. Total free pass, nah not imo. There's plenty of blame to go around stating with the invisible GM.

Oh I’m not saying the players are blameless.  Some of them had better get it together for the next staff.

So it was the worst blown lead for the team in 35 years, and it came directly after a 8-1 drubbing…

it really feels like Ruff’s only being allowed to finish out the season because Fitz doesn’t want to screw over Utica by bringing Dineen up. I have mixed feelings about that tbh. On one hand I get it, and the Utica guys deserve a shot at a Cup, but otoh I want these coaches away from our young players like yesterday. And the big club should always take precedence over the minor league affiliate. 

The Winnipeg home opener only missed that cutoff by thirteen seconds since their first goal came at the tail end of the second period.  But they scored all their goals in like thirteen minutes, just like Florida scored their four goals in thirteen minutes - they just started later

Huh? How does that mean I have to acknowledge his goals? I still stand by what I said. Kuokkanen shouldn’t be on an nhl roster. Does that mean I have to acknowledge any time he posts a point?

You don't "have" to do anything. Just pointing it that what you're doing is the typical negative fan sh!tting on a player or a team when things are bad and going completely silent when things go well or still focus on negative sh!t. Again, you can do wtv you want, im just calling a cat a cat.

what do the graphs say? cause the optics over expectations are short most nights. Sometimes even looking disinterested in playing the defensive side of the game. 

I know you were being sarcastic, but here you go…

*hint* not great

Thank you -  I was but honestly because I don't understand half of what this stuff say's or means. So I appreciate the hint (interpretation) even more.

Whether it's sports, business or anything else for that matter I think it's easy to often find numbers to backup whatever position you want to side with going in hence my sarcasm. Add that in with an effort to just laugh off and through another crap season.

Well, let's play a hypothetical game of "what if?"...

Fitz brings back the entire staff next year citing team injuries and lack of stable goaltending as the culprits for the team's woes. What are the odds Dineen sticks around? 

I think we have to prepare ourselves for such a scenario.

I know there's an expectation/hope that the coaching staff get canned - and I'm 100% in favor of a clean sweep in that department, but is Dineen really the right guy? He's only coached 146 NHL games and has a 56-62-28 record, which doesn't seem so great. I know he's got Holtz playing well (which we really need) but I hope there are better options out there in the summer. Having said that, I'd take just about anyone over the circus clowns we've got now.

It’s been a while since he coached at the NHL level…maybe he’s improved and learned since then.  Yeah I can’t say that he’s an absolute sure thing though.

I could be totally wrong of course (wouldn’t be the first time), but I just have a feeling he’s the next hire.  What I’m curious to know is would Dineen be hired because the Devils fully believe in him (and like that he’s been working with the Utes), or because he’s a guy who won’t be in a position to demand too much power?  To me, if fvcking nASS is still here, we’ll have our answer.

I personally want Torts but dont see that as a possibility.  I think Fitz takes the "safe route" and hires from within. I just hope that wont mean keeping the staff intact or bringing back the immortal nASS as you said. Worst case scenario is the entire staff comes back, we dont get Torts or anyone else at the NHL level, and Dineen walks.

I don’t think the entire staff comes back; if they do, then I really have no words.  But I’ll also be at a loss for words if ANY of them come back.

Yeah if Torts was a possibility, I suspect that he’d already be here.
