From Now On

Postby Fire0nice228 on Tue Mar 12, 2013 10:07 pm

I admit to being a negative nancy lately, and I do believe that the Pens have some issues that need addressed with regards to personnel and coaching decisions, but for me, from now on,

Never. Give. Up.

I still can't believe that Byslma had his dmen stretch passing THAT late in a game, while protecting a lead against a team that dominated the faceoff circle.

Two unforced icings because of horrible systems and coaching. Really? Stretch passing that late in a game from our OWN goaline while trying to protect a lead? Those icings were the sole reason for the Bruins pressure at end. Absolutely could have been avoided, and these are the simple things that Bylsma NEEDS to figure out.

Where should I live? The USA where people are shooting each other everyday? Where people walk around with automatic weapons and kill multiple people at a time? Where I'd have to pay for health care?

Canada is a great place and there's zero reason to be unhappy here. I take great offense to your ignorance.

This isn't a pee wee team. This is a professional hockey team that is supposed to be coached by a professional coach. These mistakes should not happen at this level. Bylsma constantly makes it tough on this team, rather than helping them. Yes the wins are there, but the wins were there last year going into the playoffs too and what happened?

We need to clean it up and it starts with Bylsma.

I'm still shocked how Mark Eaton is on this team again, let alone getting all this playing time over Despres.

To be fair, Mark has been way better than Engelland. Engelland should be benched until there's an injury

Did you ever stop to think that just maybe Bylsma DID NOT instruct the d-men to make such plays? It is entirely possible that the player had a brain-fart all on their own.

I'm as critical on Bylsma as anyone, but I highly doubt Bylsma told Orpik to throw the puck down the ice like that. That was just a dumb play by him.

What team do you coach, again? HCDB certainly has a few flaws, but how are you comparing this team to a pee wee team? Mistakes happen all the time at this level.

Spoiler:
Heads will explode when Bylsma is coaching the US olympic team next year.

I think people are too sensitive about being positive. The truth is that despite their good record, an objective argument can be made that then Penguins, as a team, have not consistently played in a way that is typically required to be successful in the playoffs. It seems this has been an issue for at least two of the past three seasons. Some argue the past three.

What is the root of the cause? It is impossible for any of us to prove. That's why we have discussions based on our opinions. Who cares if I think Bylsma is the problem? I don't see him being replaced this year, so I hope as much as anyone else I'm wrong.

Why do I post about it? Because I'm concerned about it. Like most of you, for some reason I cannot explain, I care about the performance of a professional hockey team. For some, possibly dumb, reason, I invest time and energy following them and analyzing their performance.

I don't see a problem with a civil hockey discussion. Hating on alleged haters is what's dumb and creates true negativity.

I was very nervous every time a puck was dumped into Eaton's corner. He can barely muster up enough speed to avoid being destroyed.

Definitely a head scratcher as Despres provides escapability, toughness, offense and so on.


Feels great to see a glimpse of our "cardiac kids" once more. They were pushing so hard and checking everything!
