I should be surprised, but Lou also fired Robbie Ftorek from the Devils a few games before the playoffs in the 1999-2000 season. Still, the Devils just need to get it together. Maybe this change will help, maybe the players need to get fired up, but SOMETHING will happen. (An aside: Valeri Kamensky is having a bit of a renissance in NJ, 3 G and 3 A in the last 4 games)

I like this idea, kinda in the same vein as how guys who play in the NHL but don't win a championship refuse to touch the Stanley Cup, even after retirement. Kinda adds to the mystique of the trophy, IMO.
