There should have been no question about whether Devils coach Pete DeBoer is returning for next season. But this is, after all, the Devils. So general manager Lou Lamoriello put to rest any questions when he said today that DeBoer will be back next season. "Yes. I've said all along. Put it to rest," Lamoriello said. "I'm never going to answer those questions one way or the other during the (season). But this coaching staff worked as hard as any coaching staff I've had here. I'll just leave it at that."
