Yeah, they fired Scotty Bowman after winning a Cup.

Needless to say I don't agree with the move today. Especially keeping the assistants around as well. There is now officially no accountability from top to bottom in this organization. But I will continue to root my butt off for the Pens because I love them so much.

Having said that, Ray Shero better be right. Because if he isn't then he should absolutely be gone by the end of next year along with his boy Bylsma.

Bylsma had so many options this year with an absolutely stacked roster. Pens got very lucky with injuries. Only Martin had an injury of note in Eastern Conference finals and he was able to play through it.

We had a heck of a roster. Basically our healthy scratches could have played for any other team, sans maybe one or two. Next year our line-up won't be as good. That's a hard fact. But does anyone believe we will also be as lucky with injuries? That's one more reason that makes this extension very hard to accept. We had the opportunity and definitely didn't make the most of it although everything was going for us. Our world class roster was pretty healthy - but the outcome an utter failure. Last year everyone thought it couldn't get worse than the series against Flyers. It just did, and there might be more in the bank if nothing changes. Seldom do I see people being rewarded for failure. Now it happened.

The extensions for coaching staff make me very cynical about next season and beyond. We needed a change of direction for the team - and as a fan, I needed one as well. Now I'm just going to be grumpy and call for firing of HCDB and his staff at slightest setbacks. No one is going to enjoy the gameplay - or the whining :scared:

Agreed, the get-along-gang is back for the long haul. Just like sid always says "I don't think we need to change anything", that should be the mantra for next year, lets put it on the ice, so everyone knows that arrogance rules this orginization!

Inmates run the asylum, with full backing of the owner! Can't wait for Moustache boy and get to our game and play in the offensive zone!
I'll always root for the team, but I won't spend my money to do it in person anymore.

Oh, and I see some "dan's on a short leash" comments out there........he's not , if he was he'd be unemployed today.

Forget about everything that's happen since 2009.

How can you stand your boss saying the same thing to you every day at the office?

I don't think he really says anything to them. Watch him on the bench during a time out. Take cap off water, drink, recap, repeat

The Snapshot wrote:I supported Bylsma when the team struggled earlier in the season, and he righted the ship and they finished strong. They faced adversity in round 1 (mostly Fleury IMO) and they came through. The next series we overwhelmed a strong defensive team. The last series we had no puck luck and faced a "hot" goalie.

The problems I have with the extension are these:

1) Bennett and Despres - mishandled
2) Iginla - mishandled
3) Stating now that Fleury is "our franchise goalie"
4) The fact that the entire team took Game 2 at home off
5) Four years now of Playoff disappointment - which would seem to indicate that the system he refuses to deviate from somehow needs to have alternative paths defined - can he do that?
6) Departures to FA are going to give kids like Bortuzzo, Doumolin, Harrington and others looks. Can Bylsma handle these kids better than he handled Bennett and Despres?
7) Craig Adams never scratched, ever.

He should have been fired. I really hope that the decision was a joint agreement to change the approach to coaching as well, not a vote of confidence for a coach who has failed.



Lawl. The Irony is delicious.

This place is going to be fantastic next year if the Pens lose their first game of the year, or lose two in a row early.

If Shero is married to DB I would have at least liked to have seen a legit assistant or associate head coach come in. Someone like Guy Boucher or someone who can preach defense and structure. Fresh voice isn't a bad thing...

I bet you're so pumped and excited about this contract extension, you cannot wait for training camp, but don't get your hopes up. I already heard Byslma said 1st day of training camp is optional.

No, not really.

Just enjoying watching you freak out over it.

I've said it's not going to affect how I watch one way or the other? If he stays, fine. If he got fired? Fine. i trust Ray Shero's judgment.

Hopefully all of this puts the expectation level of the fans a little lower than Stanley cup or bust. It's not realistic. Shero is right, you don't win the cup every year.

Dang, how didn't we win a game against the bruins?
