>> 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.

awww pour Dan you could potentially be paid millions of dollars to sit at home and not doing anything. (Something Therrien actually did before taking another job)

I see where he is coming from because he does have a kid and probably wants to move to the new city so the kid get acclimated before school starts.

End of the days, i am sure ownership will allow any team that wants to talk to him and they will gladly let him out of his contract if that happens. But why fire a guy where you are going to have to keep paying him if he just resigns.

Someone else alluded to it. Like it or not, he's probably the most sought after coach on the market. Why start with the dominoes falling before our own house is in order? Firing him now would handcuff our soon to be GM. This week of limbo isn't gonna kill him.

Well there is no way to say that it is about the money and sound right. I do not think they are trying to insult the fans, rather deal with an individual with a bad contract in a way that maybe gets them off the hook from having to pay and also prevents a divisional rival from also getting better.

Either way, as a fan i am not feeling insulted and i do not feel any sympathy for Dan. We all know that he will be coaching somewhere and for a lot of money.

They don't owe it to you or anyone to say that in public. So why bother?
