Devils Coach Compared To Lemaire

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,
A key question is the style of play Julien will employ in relation to traditional, defense-first, Devils hockey. “The approach of this hockey club is a perfect fit for me,” said Julien. Julien‘s appointment follows weeks of speculation during which names such as MacLean, Pat Quinn, Lemaire and Brian Sutter were bruited about. When all was said and done Julien was Lou’s choice because, as the boss put it, “we have a similar philosophy.” My personal take is that Julien – while not a household name – will make an excellent leader. It reminds me of the hiring of Jacques Lemaire which surprised a lot of people. But when all was said and done, Lemaire turned out to be a winner Julien will be likewise.
