Here's a well written piece that lends further credence to the fact that Bylsma could probably ice a better team night after night.
I really like the lineup he presents.
Once again Bylsma's love affair with players is hurting this team. Does DB sacrifice winning to keep his vets happy? You would think no, but lately it's getting really difficult to believe that, it seems he'll live and die with his favorite players.
Yea, at this point it is nearly impossible to argue that the lineup decisions are based on merit. How does he watch Scuderi, game after game, stand next to or in front of opposing forwards while they deposit pucks behind Pens netminders? Sitting Engo, Despres or Bortuzzo over Scuderi at this point is blatant malfeasance and we are all lucky it hasn't gotten Fleury seriously injured already.
And Adams is clearly getting a sweater every night because he has the streak goin' and DB ain't gonna break that streak no matter how much it hurts not only Adams, but the team. Craig Adams could still be serviceable playing 50 games against the right opponents.
Reading this article and viewing the stats posted above regarding 5 on 5 play is absolutely mind blowing that Bylsma can be so ignorant, stubborn, and blind. You don't even need the stats to realize this, they just further support it!
I can't wait until this clownsuit is relieved of his duties.
HCDB simply can't believe that Adams and Glass are better hockey players than Gibbons, Megna and Vitale. The author starts to concern me when he vouches for Goc though. That dude is a total stiff as well
