Are we really blaming Fleury for an uncontested snipe job from one of the best scorers in the history of the game?


No just one person.

I think a foe was born.

I agree that Bylsma should go, but it ain't happening. For some reason, in Ray's eyes, he can do no wrong.


The HC of Team USA is not going to be fired by the associate GM of Team USA in the Olympic year. Shero will have a come-to-Jesus with him first, if he hasn't already.

The thing is, the players love him. If they're concerned about their play getting him fired (regardless of who's at fault for the poor play), then that's not going to help matters. They're going to grip their sticks into sawdust.

Who the freak cares about the regular season? Pens played decent tonight, but Brodeur and Jagr were better. Wake me when the playoffs begin and the games actually mean something. Or, when Disco Dan gets canned like he should have after getting owned by the Bruins!

Maybe they fooled me, but the Pens looked like this game meant something to them.
They just were not clear how to win it.

If it keeps going this way, you will need to wake up only briefly, if at all.

The realistic view is that DB isn't going anywhere for a while b/c the team is still leading the division. I can't think of a time the coach of a division leading team was fired in any sport. I have felt DB should have been let go years ago, but now that he's still here, he's not going to be fired by a 1st place team.

I would be somewhat appeased now if the team would just recognize what they are doing wrong. I'm tired of this mentality that they have it all figured out and the only reason they lose is b/c a) they don't execute it or b) there is some mystical outside force preventing it. Just **** recognize that you don't have the entire NHL figured out and you might need to bend your arrogant ass to actually do something different. Don't want to match lines ever? Well guess what? It's biting you in the ass big time. Stop pretending that's not a reason and change your ways. Everyone else matches lines. Do it. Just one example but if they continue preaching that the only reason we could ever possibly lose is b/c the team doesn't execute the flawless game plan or that some magical force prevents them from winning, I will lose it. It's borderline lunacy to believe that ****.

Which is part of the problem.

The Sharks followed that same logic with Ron Wilson and wasted years of potential on a lost cause of a coach. I'm terrified the Pens will become the same cautionary tale of the East.

I expected someone to say that, and, M10, I'm not criticizing you (no reason for that). I'm just surmising that the players may be nervous that they could get DB fired, so they end up playing at a level that could get him fired. Like many, I'm just kicking crap around.

I'm not saying it's right. But I'm being realistic. I honestly can't think of a single coach who has been fired as a division leader. It was a huge deal when the Devils fired their coach going into the playoffs. RS has more reasons to keep DB than fire him in terms of business.

Fortunately Monday is free hat night, so I'll go to that one, after that with the way this team is performing, its time to sell off some tickets. No sense wasting my time.

Go to see Teemu Selanne's curtain call. That's the one reason I'm looking forward to Monday's game.

Pretty sure the Devils fired their coach while leading, not too long ago.

Yep. 5 games left in the season and the Devils were going to the playoffs.

But we're talking about Lou Lamerillo.
