It’s Not Exactly The Kiss Army…

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun:

“As far as (Julien’s) on-ice approach, it’s not much different than what we’ve been doing. I never talked to (Lamoriello) about (Julien) at all,” said Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, the longest-serving veteran in Lamoriello’s Army.
“I had lots of different conversations with (Julien) about coaching or whatever. You always turn around to look at yourself when these things happen.“That’s tough to do here because we gave him 102 points. It’s hard for us to feel bad. When coaches are fired, it’s because the players aren’t responding. Well, we’ve done our share, I think.”

The players aren’t just players here. They’re disciples of the system. They live by Lamoriello’s strict rules of no facial hair and mandatory shirt and tie on the road — and the players seem to enjoy it.
