I also like Robinson as the next coach. I just think as presently constructed, the Pens are simply not defensive first. I admit that the Devils don't have a Crosby or Malkin or Letang, or Staal, but the Pens quit playing D by game 50. Martin is a waste and Michalek is really average when he has to work the boards. Bylsma has to go and Shero really has not developed anyone of note since 2009 on his own. Get past the Stall pick and all he has done is make trades, some good. But he or Bylsma keep playing or rewarding players who only play his BS system. Tangradi is not as good a skater as Cooke, really? Kunitz is a very good forward, but the Pens just place no fear into anyone now with a forward who hits you with all he has and doesn't make a dent. Rupp gave them a big hard checker who would bang your butt. So they keep a bunch of 5-10 200 pound wingers who lack presence. Staal hits only when he wants to. I like Neal, but he is god awful defensivly sometimes.
