Lamoriello and Gainey

Lou Lamoriello jolted the NHL world by firing Claude Julien in his first season as coach of the Devils 3 games before the playoffs despite the fact that the Devils were winners of their division and had won 4 of their last 5 games. The explanation he offered was that he didn't think they were playing well. Bob Gainey didn't follow suit. He allowed Guy Carbonneau to finish his first season as coach despite the team's rough patches, a lame effort against the Rangers in game 81, and an atmosphere of controversy. Should Gainey have relieved Carbonneau, who couldn't lead the Habs to as much as 92 points?

No. Stability is important. NJ is an exception to this rule because Lamoriello is responsible for the team's structure, system and personnel; the coach is merely the middleman in NJ.

In most franchises, the coach plays an integral role in the success of the club. And stability is very important.

Stick with Carbonneau, better or for worse.

In NJ , the group is so stick together that they could be in an auto-self-coached mode . They just need someone to call the lines on the ice .

Clearly 24 coaches should have been fired the last couple weeks, not just Julien. It'd be like a game of musical chairs.
