Hope whatever they come up with this summer works, because we're going to live and die by it in the playoffs.

Every time that the Pens have lost in the postseason under a Bylsma coached team, the loss has come against a lower seeded team.

I'm... okay with this.

For some reason, i feel this is the right decision. Total gut feeling.

And.... If I'm wrong he will be fired by December. lol.

I can't fully support a team with Dan "one look" Bylsma at the head. He can't adjust, can't win when teams really game plan and adjustments are necessary...in post season. Regular season, there isn't much time so there isn't much practice and scheming based on one team.


I'm moving on. I'll support the players but the organization is losing their prime time frame to win a cup or two with a special core.


So what is the difference between now and 2 weeks ago? Will you consume the product any less?



Two weeks ago, well before the Penguins played a legit contender.... The team was playing well... They ran into a team that is coached by a legit coach that game planned and adjusted to shut the Pens down from scoring 4 goals per game to less then 4 goals in 4 games..

What adjustment did Bylsma make? The team certainly wasn't prepared.

They should have been ready and split the home games 1 & 2. They got embarrassed.... And Bylsma should have been on a short leash after last year as is.


I"ll support the players, Geno, Pascal and others that I appreciate but the team clearly won't go anywhere based off of individual talent and All stars brought in by Ray Shero.


So, in terms of your fanship, nothing has really changed. You're not "totally done".

This is the first time in my life I feel like turning on the pens. I mean I've dealt with the X-Generation years after the Jagr trade but this is just so ugly I can't support it.

"I was very happy with our goaltending this year. We traded for Tomas (Vokoun) to help (Marc-Andre) Fleury and our team." -Shero

This team is operating on some alternate universe somewhere. I'd love to know where the management gets their drugs from.

Well...I will be out of the country for a few years so at least I will be following them from a distance now, literally.

Maybe there was a caveat that they had to revamp their system. Death to the stretch pass. Something. This year wasn't "all in" for nothing. It will be really difficult to field a competitive (championship caliber) roster in the coming years, and they are just treading water with that Empty Suit behind the bench.

I'm getting there. If they fail again, I hope Shero is fired too.

He's totally done after the pens lose or struggle. He's totally on board when they're winning.

This describes many sports fans...not just one particular dude.

I never said it was like discovering Atlantis, dude. Just speaks to another level of his many levels of failure and suck.

SOunds like the solution is to squeek into the playoffs as an 8 seed(16 overall).

If you're wrong we'll find out this time next playoffs, with another year of Crosby/Malkin prime gone.

Bylsma system is a proven regular season winner. It's also a proven playoff dud.

Not firing him is one thing, I guess I could have lived with that. But giving him an extension is just a move that is almost incomprehensible.

Remember when Down Goes Brown wrote about the plight of the penguins fanbase "...because we don't win the cup every year!"

I'm beginning to see why he wrote that.

Just really disappointed. I spend alot of really hard earned money attending games. I feel like I am being spoken down to by the Pens organization and the media right now with the DB love.
