Today the New Jersey Devils have announced the hiring of Jacques Lemaire to take over the reins of the club that he originally led to their first Stanley Cup, which was won in 1995. This was long rumored since Lemaire left the Wild organization after coaching that program since its inception in 2000 and also since Brent Sutter left his post as Devils head coach to ultimately take over the Flames. Lemaire would seem to be the perfect fit as he still advocates the same defensively responsible style of play that Lou Lamoriello favors. However, I have my doubts that Lemaire will be any more successful than the last several coaches in Jersey.

I read your article, and frankly, Im not impressed. see below. That was 15 years ago, this is now. How good were the Wild last year? Pretty darn good (and they couldn't score to save their lives) Look at it that way. Dont just jump on the "trap" boat, thats too easy. Look a little deeper, numbers, offense, ect.. You dont want your blog to look like an AP article do you? or do you???

typical devils hiring they will never sign an up-tempo coach. Here's to more years of boring devils hockey. That's why i love the rangers.

Michael-Yes I mentioned the trap but basically I just didn't see where Lemaire is going to have more success with this roster than Sutter did last year. I even pointed out the Elias has had some great statistical years in the Devils system. And while I used the word "trap" I also describe it as a system of "defensive responsibility.
