I'm pissed he's giving up these aweful goals as well, but even a goaltender change doesn't solve the dominating zone time by the Isles, the seemingly overwhelming speed, the high quality scoring oppotunities, or the dumb penalties, the dumb turnovers, and the terrible breakout.
We have so many issues right now, it's almost inconcievable that this is the same team that we saw playing a few weeks ago.
Agreed on all points, although I would say that Bylsma needs a helluva lot more than this series. I'm not yet of a mind that this series is a done deal at 2-2, even though they've played like utter crap for the most part over the past 3 games, but the 2nd round isn't enough for this roster. A good run in the ECF is a bare minimum, in my book, to keep the axe from swinging freely. Honestly if I were Shero, even that would give me reason to give it a good hard think.
I'm not one to be too hard on anyone, but I'm with Gaucho - there is absolutely no reason for this team to look so bad against the Islanders. It's not so much being even after 4, but the way they're even that is the cause for concern.
