I would like to have whatever Lamoriello is smoking. This just does not make any sense! Why fire a coach three or four games prior to the playoffs and when your team is fighting for second place overall in the conference?

Devils fire Julien in a surprise move


Canadian Press
4/2/2007 1:09:31 PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CP) - Lou Lamoriello is back behind the bench in New Jersey.

The playoff-bound Devils have fired head coach Claude Julien with less than a week to go in the regular season with the veteran GM Lamoriello taking over for the second straight season.

Lamoriello also stepped behind the bench last season after Larry Robinson stepped down as coach in December.

The surprising move Monday comes with the Devils second in the Eastern Conference with a 47-24-8 record and 102 points. The Devils have won four of their last five games, including Sunday's 3-1 win over Boston. They went 6-6-2 in March while battling key injuries to Brian Gionta, John Madden and Patrik Elias.

Julien, a former Montreal Canadiens coach, took over the Devils on June 13, 2006, after Lamoriello relinquished the coaching duties.

It's reminiscent of the 1999-2000 season when the Devils fired head coach Robbie Ftorek on March 23 and went on to win the Stanley Cup under Robinson that spring.

The last time the Devils did this they won the Cup. Maybe, it'll work again.

Well, it's down to the wire now - I wonder if the Islanders deserve 8th spot after the Habs' and Leafs' performance tonight

Oh, ha ha, I was implying that was a poor performance by the Canadian teams (the Habs for sure but the Leafs I'm assuming from the final score)

Canucks/Kings game on Tuesday was fantastic.

Tonight's game? Not so much. We lose 3-1 to the Avs. Hopefully Saturday will give us a win, and the NW Div.

I'm an Islander's fan, so I was hoping you were correct and that the Isles get that 8th spot. And we need the Leafs to win tomorrow, hence the GO LEAFS GO chant.

Ahem.....Go Leafs Go? I don't think so. All the Habs need is one point so I'm hoping the game goes into OT.

What a game though! The ratings in Canada should be through the rooof!

Go Habs Go!!

Actually, even if the Habs get only one point the Islanders can still make it if they win both games this weekend.

Wow, who will Crazy Lou put in nets on Sunday against the Isles?

Whoa....the Islanders just beat the Flyers 4-2. This means that Montreal has to win! If Toronto wins in regulation or OT/SO and the Islanders win tomorrow against the Devils then the Islanders get in.

If Montreal wins then they're in and if the get at least a point,coupled with an Islanders loss tomorrow they're also in.

What a scenario! I can't wait for tonight's game!
