That's kind of like saying the Head Coach has a responsibility for everything.
Go to the Devils board and post if you will. They don't like him. They say he helped in some ways but failed in most.
So he was an assistant coach on a team that went to the Stanley Cup finals. Are you saying that DeBoer was responsible for all their success alone? You are kind of contradicting yourself.
I know that there are Boudreau romantics here, but the reality is that his 'system" was not only failing in the playoffs, but was failing in the regular seasonas wella t the time of his departure. He lost the players to boot. He is the NHL version of Mike D'Antoni. The Caps were a fundamentally poor team with sharpshooters,, and the league figured out that if you crowd them, problem solved.
i was wrong about something, though. I had been a McPhee supporter for a while, and his coaching choices have pretty much put be in with the "fire McPhee" crowd. I'm not sure why he fears experienced coaches, maybe his ego.
whist its still just 3 games with everything new, i think i agree with some that McPhee has done his dash. we just dont have a strong list. there is not much scoring talent and there is not enough strength.
ive always liked mcphee but its just not working mate.
Not sure where the 'devils fans hated Oates' stuff is coming from
Most of us liked him, didn't care for how he ran the PP (some dislike him for just that reason alone), but he was influential in helping the centers notably on faceoffs and throughout his time here he was praised by Parise, Elias, and a lot of other forwards
Nuck fan here. Sorry to ask after a tough loss but I saw some interest in Lu. I understand he doesn't have the greatest contract in the world, but he's still in his prime and an excellent starter. What would you guys be willing to offer?
I'm thinking something like a bottom 6 roster player, one of your goalies and futures?
