This latest mysterious move by Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello might foster less skepticism if it wasn’t his ninth coaching change since the last lockout. The 100-day hunt for a coach to lead the team back to the playoffs yesterday produced one who has never been there.
It is clearly more philosophy, work ethic and intangibles than his NHL track record that made Pete DeBoer the Devils’ coach. DeBoer never coached the Panthers to the playoffs during three years in his first NHL job, yet that is his task for a Devils team that missed the postseason for the first time in 14 seasons.
