First off, I think we will be okay and win this series. But what are your expectations? Just getting to the playoffs? With this lineup? Pens haven't done anything in the playoffs since they won the Cup. And yes, no Sid or Geno last year but they still were up 3-1 in that series and had two home games to finish Tampa off and didn't. With this team healthy and the incredible talent it has, losing in the first round is completely unacceptable. You only have so many chances and teams that are capable of winning the Cup.
Yes, Bylsma has a lot of good qualities and has had great regular season success. But he hasn't gotten it done in the postseason lately and that is all that matters. If he can't get this team past the first round this yea that would be 3 disappointing postseason losses in a row and he shouldn't be the guy going forward.
