I think I like it, but don't know too much about him in terms of coaching. Im def a fan of the foligno lineage though

Devils Trap 07-19-2013 02:04 PM

I dont know anything about him. I wont comment on it

Classic Devil 07-19-2013 02:04 PM

Okay. Whatever.

Don't know anything about him except that he got fired along with the rest of Randy Carlyle's staff in Anaheim.

phew, I was afraid that hack on twitter was going to be wrong and we weren't going to have big news today. i guess we should trust him now.

How long will it be before Lou acquires one of his sons?

He was a tremendous goal scorer in the NHL, especially in Buffalo.

One of the Sabres' best in the 80s. He scored a big playoff goal IIRC for the Leafs but his best years were in Buffalo. Was a good coach for Sudbury.

He's Italian....I approve of this move

He was never an NHL player.

Haha I know! I was just being a goofball.

I never expected him to get the job, though he was a Lemaire buddy like Shaw and Barr. He also never coached with Lemaire either like those two did.

I'm relived it isn't Sarge.

He would of ran our PP amazingly. :sarcasm:

The assistant coaching spot is as relevant as John Maclean

Disagree. Good assistant coaches have had noticeable impacts.

Jersey Man 07-19-2013 02:43 PM

No opinion. Just want results on the PP.

Stevens 4 07-19-2013 02:43 PM

Don't know much about his coaching record, but I'm happy someone is in the position now.

I don't think so. What the coach says as far as tactics is the way it goes and assistant coaches just work with what the coach wants.

DEVILS ALL THE WAY* 07-19-2013 02:52 PM

Foligno... meh. We should be talking to the couple of solid free agents and Henrique ATM but whatever.

I think you're correct, but I also think it's almost impossible for us, as fans, to tell when assistant coaches are making that good impact.

Bleedred 07-19-2013 03:07 PM

So the million dollar question. It probably doesn't matter (It didn't with Shaw) but how was Anaheim's PP when he was there? I know they had better offensive talent than us, so it was probably better anyway.

KovalSNIPE 07-19-2013 03:08 PM

What kind of coach is he? I mean obviously we're gonna play our hard forechecking system, but what specialties does he bring to the table?
