Peter DeBoer has brought a new, aggressive system to the Devils this year.
The Devils are a faster, younger team this season than they were at this point last year.
They currently sit 8th in the East.
In other words, they are a mediocre to good team right now. In my opinion, if they reach the playoffs, they have a chance to advance to the 2nd round, but I can't really see them beating Boston or Philly (even a healthy Pittsburgh) in a 7 game series.
We all know Lou likes to shake things up with coaching changes.
If the Devils make the playoffs, I think DeBoer returns.
If the Devils miss the playoffs, I am not so sure what will happen.
What do you think: Is DeBoer a lock to return next season?
Comment and vote if you wish. I find this situation interesting because Lou is not patient but is trying to change the Devils' system. Will he cut PDB some slack?
