Dan Bylsma Approval rating (1st quarter)

Postby count2infinity on Wed Nov 20, 2013 8:59 am

At the beginning of the season I had posted a similar thread, as I was curious if all the "FIRE DB!" people were the majority or just a vocal minority. DB's approval rating then by LGP was a 67%. It is now just over a quarter of the season down. I'm curious, once again to see what the numbers say.

I would think with the talent we have we should be doing better. Although we are not doing terrible there is plenty room for improvment.

I think it would of been better to have everyone grade Dan (A+ A, A-, B+, B , B- Etc...) on his performance. To hard to totally go one way or another. Or base on a scale of 1 -10.

Sid and Geno are not producing in this latest losing streak, i can't fault Dan totally for that.

I give Dan a 5+

I'm not voting, because I'm biased. I've never liked him. I'm thinking you are looking for votes on his current performance. So me voting would skew the metrics you're looking for.

I'm not voting because hockey is played in three equal parts not quarters. :pop:

The multiple options thing was brought up last time I did this as well... I am trying to phrase the question exactly like government approval polls. I'm not really trying to start any sort of big discussion, I just want to see the numbers.

After getting dominated in line matchups at home against Craig Berube there is nothing Bylsma can do to restore any faith I would have in his ability to lead a team.

Do you really need to ask this question?

1) The level of expectation that LGP has for the Pens is absurd.

2) The pens are/were in a slump.

3) Disapproval votes are more likely to be cast.

Just curious,
are you going to mail the results to Ray Shero?

calm down.

1) I agree, but on this board there are numerous people that just read rather than post whatever is on their mind. Giving this poll allows people to put a little bit of input without actually having to post.

2) Agreed, the last poll was done during a winning streak, amazing how the numbers change based on that

3) Yup. Agreed.

I plan on doing this again at the halfway mark of the season as well. I'm a numbers guy. I like actually seeing numbers rather than reading a thread where there are 3 people loudly arguing DB should be fired, 3 people saying wait it out, and 3 people staunchly defending him while everyone else stays out.

When your best players are struggling and look pedestrian, it's more than just a player's slump. Sure Malkin has had his linemates struck by the injury bug, but he should still look better than he has.

Crosby isn't up to snuff, Malkin is a team worst in plus/minus and has been non existent most nights (save for lately), Letang is frustratingly bad, Dupuis looks nothing like his normal self, Kunitz while having 9 goals still doesn't look like Kunitz.

Are all of these players in a slump and struggling all at the same time? Or are they forced into a system that isn't working, easily solved, and therefore put behind the 8 ball before they even step on the ice?

Special teams, which are a reflection of coaching, are also not performing. Our PK is nowhere where it needs to be and our PP with the talent we have should be much better. Sure it's doing alright, but you can't deny that it looks disorganized, lost, clueless many nights. I'd be fine if we at least had a consistent system that was creating chances regularly, but some nights we can't even get a shot on net or gain the zone with control.

I said it before, Bylsma's shortcomings, arrogance, refusal to adjust, and player selection hurts us more than he actuallly helps us. In my mind, he's been holding this team back for the past 2-3 years. I hate that Shero believes in him like he does.

our team GAA is good, and we're scoring at a rate that's in line with the overall talent we have. so i guess i can't say he's doing a bad job this year. i don't like our forward roster, but that's not his fault. it's also not his fault that malkin is being "enigmatic".

i don't have any faith that he can succeed in the playoffs, but based solely on the current state of things, i don't think he's doing a bad job.

How would you rate Dan Bylsma this year? Is this better or worse than you expected? What percentage of fans do you think approve of Dan Bylsma? Is this higher or lower than what fans around the league think?

He should have been fired immediately after the Boston series last year. You cannot expect a different ending when you do the same thing over and over.

Kunitz hasn't looked like Kunitz? His HART rating is one of the best in hockey and leads the team in virtually every statistical category imaginable.
