Wow, what's with the sudden explosion of anti-Devils drivel? And parts of this one totally contradict the published news stories about DeBoer's hire. Way to check facts before writing... "It is clear that Peter DeBoer is seen as an interchangeable part. I think he is most likely going to be replaced as Devils coach within two year and I think that is the way Lou Lamoreillo wants things. He doesn’t want a longterm coach. He would let DeBoer have a longterm run in the unlikely outcome of a Stanley Cup or runaway coach of the year, but otherwise this is a shortterm position." Yes, Lou wants short-term coaches. He wanted Sutter to quit, and MacLean to fall flat on his face so he could continue to loom menacingly over his coaches... "DeBoer is probably as good a coach as you can get at this late stage of the game. There were more choices a month ago when this move should have been made." I love the implication that Lou waited forever to even conduct his interviews, even though the stories from Chere and Gulitti say DeBoer interviewed early on and then had to wait while Lou looked under every rock.
