Like I said, I've been a Bylsma supporter, but I don't think he's the right coach for this team anymore, he doesn't hold players accountable, he makes poor lineup choices and he sounds like a broken record when we lose, "we didn't get to our game".
We won the Cup in 2009, he was an important part of that, but the Pens played a different style and we had a lineup that was deeper and younger, yes we have some of the same guys, but 4 years later, they're not the same player.
He changed the entire style of our team and ever since he did, we have failed.
Ray Shero is also at fault
, he did the exact opposite of improving the team in the offseason and the on ice product is proving that.
That definitely is worth mentioning.
