Jacque Lemaire Retires; New Jersey Devils Enter Offseason

April 27th, 2010 by Peter Lomuscio Leave a reply »

The New Jersey Devils once again proved their superiority and consistency by putting together another tremendous regular season. But unfortunately for them they once again couldn’t continue their success into the postseason. And with this disappointing postseason the offseason dominoes have begun to fall.


It has started with the retirement of head coach Jacques Lemaire. The 64-year-old coach has stated that he doesn’t have the energy to coach in the NHL any more. Lemaire won a Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils in 1995. He has also admitted to thinking about retirement throughout the 2009-2010 season, claiming to be worn down.


The Devils have made the playoffs in 13 consecutive years, but in the past three postseasons the Devils have been eliminated in premature fashion exiting in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
