Devils Fans React To Retirement Of Jacques Lemaire

SBN's Devils blog, In Lou We Trust, recated to the news that head coach Jacques Lemaire has retired, with some additional thoughts on replacements that some Devils fans are already considering.

An excerpt:

Let me be the first to state that while the results speak for themselves, Lemaire's season as head coach wasn't all that bad.  The Devils did win the Atlantic Division, they did finish second in the Eastern Conference, and did so in defying many people's explanations.  The Devils didn't win games in 09-10 by sitting back in a 1-2-2 and relying on a counterattack for their offense. Lemaire was more than willing to play offensive lines moreso than Brent Sutter did, allow defensemen to pinch in on offense when necessary, and putting 4 and sometimes 5 forwards on a power play. The coaching style by Jacques Lemaire of 2009-10 was clearly not coaching like Lemaire did in 1994-95.
