Apparently, Louie is taking over behind the bench. Now while some woud say that this is going to fu*k with the locker room chemistry, remember in 2003 the devils dumped Ftorek, and ended up winning the Cup...

So we'll just have to wait and see...

I thought that happened in 2000... Where is Ftorek anyways? ^_^

That's the first thing that I thought of when I heard about this. Maybe they're trying to replicate that success? Who knows. It's the only reason I can come up with.

It will only work if Julien threw the bench at the ice before he was fired.

He's a special assignment coach with the Devils along with Larry Robinson, Pat Burns and now Claude Julien. Odd thing they fire coaches like every other year (if they last that long) but they never leave the organization. It's like mafia.

To be honest I'm not totally shocked by this. Nothing like this with the Devils surprises me any more. I mean this is literally the second time they have done this and fired a coach while in first place with single digit games to go.

Hopeful history repeats itself and there will be another Cup in June.

All serious the team had been struggling but that was because of injuries. That said Julien was very defensive minded even for the Devils. Brodeur, who is the Devils unquestioned leader in the locker room, probably went to Lou with the players problem with Julien. On WFAN Lou said that Julien probably saw this coming ans will stay with the organization. He also said that the players know what is going on and it won't have to be explained.

Wow, the Devils are just a bizarre team, that do quirky things.

None the less, they have Martin Brodeur, one of the greatest (and possibly most under valued) goalies in hockey history. If he's on his game, the Devils could go all the way - again.

I think Lou didnt want the pressure of coaching all year & wanted to get into the playoffs & coach. Kinda' odd when you win 4 out of 5 & are 2nd in East you get fired. Owe well lets see what the Devils can do. Lous been there for 20 years or so, so he maybe doing something right after 3 cups.

You can do weird things when you don't have a fanbase to answer to.

Ba-Zing!!!!

I live in Jersey & the Devils do have a fan base, but it is kind of touch-and-go. Sometimes they are in full force & then other times no one is at the games. Maybe in the new arean "THE ROCK" some new fans will come out.

Or maybe when you have won 3 cups in the last 12 years the fan base knows that you know what you are doing. But I'm sure a Blackhawks fans know about that after all look at all those Stanley Cup they have won in the last 45 years.
