I put a lot of trust into what Shero does. If he thinks that Bylsma is the best person for the job I find it hard to disagree. I also think Shero already has Dan's replacement in Jacques Martin if needed.

I like how you try to make an IQ test out of this.

If he could legitimately get this team of high paid, offensive superstars to legitimately buy into playing a team defensive system, then he will have done a tremendous job.

Many coaches have been fired because players refuse to acclimate their game to the coaches system. 2 games in. So far so good...

I will admit, that I answered yes, but was someone that would have been okay seeing him go at the end of last season. I didn't want him out of town like many, but I would have been okay with him gone. So far, so good this season. Looks like the defense is doing well, but it's really too early to tell. Maybe I'll do one of these polls at the all star break to see how opinions have changed over time.

I am not a fan of replacing a head coach with an assistant coach. It's a tough transition to ask of the coach and the players. You have a guy that is used to being the good cop to the players and now all of a sudden he has to change hats and be the bad cop. It's a tough assignment to ask of the players and the coach.

Regular season - yes
Post-season - no

Post-season > regular season so the correct vote is no.

Good thing this isn't the "Admin approval rating poll" ...he'd have one emphatic "no" vote from whoever that was... :lol:

My apologies. I thought it was a duplicate and disapproved it which apparently deletes the original. I'm sorry about that. Those responsible will be dealt with swiftly and sternly.

Don't need a poll to know how that vote board-wide would go.

I was able to dig my post up in the cache, but not happy with this whole approval process. I understand it helps keep out the trolls, but it doesn't actually help with discourse...anyway....

Can the vocal majority please stand up and give me your alternative for HCDB?

You all seem to exist in this world were there are plentiful defensive strategists out in the hockey world ready to bring a different light to the Pittsburgh bench. This also presumes that said mystical coach will maintain a sufficient level of offense to succeed (see Bruce Boudreau in Washington circa 2011). You seem to believe that the hockey world is being fooled by the sham that is Dan Bylsma, and Pittsburgh is the biggest fool of them all. Surely the Olympic committee has made a mistake. RIGHT?

No one will ever be good enough the dissidents because there is an irrational belief that dynasties are not only possible, but likely in this day in age. This isn't the Canadians or Leafs pre-1960 when they had exclusive territorial rights for prospects. There is parity and systems to maintain it. The haters are setting themselves up for disappointment right away just based on their irrational expectations.

You can all b*tch and moan about how HCDB made no adjustments (debatable mind you), but until anyone has another idea, he continues to be a positive force behind the bench and giving us an opportunity year on year to chase a real dream, another Pittsburgh cup.

If you don't believe that Bylsma is good enough to get the team to a cup win, then you don't need to supply a replacement. Your answer can be "a rock". This isn't a "you're the gm" thread, its a "do you approve of the coach" thread. its a yes/no question. If your real dream is to hang up regular season champion banners, then he has certainly proven to provide that opportunity year after year, but he has also shown that when he comes up against a coach with a good team that knows how to get their team to change their style to match an opponent's strengths/weaknesses, he has proven that he is done.

The Olympics really have nothing to do with this because you aren't playing 4 straight 7 game series in the olympics, you suit a gameplan to your team and you play it game after game until you're done. He's perfect for the olympic tournament.

He has gotten the team to a cup, so your point is null and void. You wrote a lot of words saying nothing and copping out on the question. Try again please.

So if the Pens fail again in the playoffs, would you keep Byslma on for another year?
