Kyper also said Dan Blysma might be on outs in Pitt. Management didn't like the Philly series last season. He has been there a while. There may be some friction between the coach and the players. Something to watch as the season progresses. The season is six days old.
I can agree with Kyper on that. I think adding Nash wasn't just an upgrade to boost our cup chances, but also as the likely replacement for Gaborik moving forward. Depends on the numbers, but I really think Gabby is going to be a cap casualty this summer.
I like Bylsma, but he's overrated, IMO. Had Therrien not laid that foundation of a disciplined two-way game, he wouldn't have led that team to the cup that year. Now that he's firmly entrenched his system on them now, you can see the holes start to appear each season. The team is a trainwreck defensively most nights.
Also, Bylsma is a really nice guy. He's not an authoritative presence, IMO. With so much ego on that team, I think they need a hardass to kick them into gear.
