Well, it's a good point. His last cup win was a year before Bylsma's with last finals appearance the year after. Every year since then he has taken a team that's been one of the preseason favorites into the playoffs and not been back to the conference
finals, including 2 losses to San Jose and one to Nashville.
He's won gold medals, which is great if we're trying to win gold medals with Canadian all star teams.
The more I think about it, the less thrilled I am.
