Wow, I so agree with Dejan. How can that stupid ape Bylsma say these things. Not that I expect him to throw Fleury under the bus - keep or trade him, better to be political in that situation - but I see his comments as very disrespectful to Vokoun. Dejan is right that Vokoun may have saved Dan's job. And now this:http://triblive.com/sports/dejankovacevic/dejancolumns/4164486-74/bylsma-fleury-coach#axzz2USIgbMhX
And I really couldn't believe it when Bylsma was asked to expound upon what this declaration meant to Vokoun and came up with this: “Tomas ... um, I don't think is in any different boat than when he came in last year. He's going to play games for us, big games, but ... next year, he's not going to get that opportunity because Marc-Andre Fleury's going to be in net for us winning hockey games.”
Oh, for real.
The coach outright tossed into the trash the goaltender who just (maybe) saved the coach's job and who just (undoubtedly) was his team's playoff MVP by a preposterously wide margin. Bylsma exhibited zero timing, zero awareness of what Vokoun means to his teammates.
