http://blog.triblive.com/chipped-ice/20 ... z32GUIedzu>> Head coach Dan Bylsma is said to have expressed his displeasure to ownership about the situation that finds him employed but unlikely to be retained. Ownership is said to have understood his concern, but remained unwilling to let him out of his contract.
Bylsma wants to coach somewhere next season. He is said not to be interested in another job with within the organization. His salary, over $2 million, would seemingly make him overpaid for anything other than head coach or team executive.
Deal with it Dan. The pens know Dan is a good coach, but simply does not work with the team we have. I think the last thing the pens want is for him to go to Washington and turn things around there. I am not sure why that is viewed as being an unfair thing.
This team is a **** mess. Burkle and Lemieux both said any of the coaches can explore other options right now. Pretty sure moorehouse alluded to it too.
Only thing I can think of is he needs to ask out of his contract right now to take another position then the Pens don't need to pay him. So it's really all about money?
Why is that looked at in a negative way? But maybe it is all about money. I would not want to pay someone 2-4 million if i there was a way out of it... contract or not.
Then say that. This stupid notion that he's not fired yet because they want the new GM to decide if the coach that ownership had no faith in causing them to bring in another coach to babysit is the right guy or not is insulting to the fans.
