The next coach has to put in a system that sacrifices offense for defensive stability and being difficult to play against. It will suck to watch but it will win in the playoffs. The NHL, especially in the playoffs, is going back to the 1990s where being able to interfere and obstruct is the #1 key to winning. There was no difference in the last two games of this series and a New Jersey/Dallas or Dallas/Buffalo Stanley Cup final from the dead puck era.

Ron Francis please


I'm afraid he would just be another players coach.


Agreed. Time to bring back the bad cop coach.......Any of the above I am fine with. No to Francis...


Bad cop coach......Bob Boughner is ready.


Boughner is a great choice, actually. Dude is a great coach that has worked with so many different types of teams.

If he goes, I hope Disco takes the trash this roster is littered with.

If he comes with King Henrik, then I MIGHT be happy.


There is zero chance Tortorella is hired by the Pens in any capacity so no need to worry. I'm not even sure Bylsma will be fired. I won't be surprised either way, but I think he'll be back next season.

You can generate alot of offense off of playing defense, look at the first 2 games of this series. You don't have to disreqard defense to score goals, the pens just don't like to play defense, because its hard work.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think Lindy Ruff would be a good fit.

Tried to figure out how to be subtle before I remembered we have spoiler tags.

Spoiler:
I'm not sure I want Bylsma reincarnated and hanging every member of the Pens he captures. The Red Wedding doesn't work out too well for the Freys.

He's probably coming back which is inconceivable to me. Like it or not Sid calls the shots & has ownership's ear.

Everyone wants Fleury to go because he 'fails in the playoffs'. SO DOES BYLSMA!!! Why does HCDB get a pass?
