You would have said the same thing looking at the roster that won the cup. It is very rare that you have a perfect team, more so with a cap in place.

What defines a good coach/manager, in hockey or business or elsewhere, is to get the most out of your resources. Be that masking deficiencies, creating systems/work flows that suit your players/staff and developing their abilities/correcting their flaws.

Dan Bylsma is not that. He is a bumper sticker. He is an unwholesome diet program where the effects wear off as soon as you stop cheating yourself. If you can honestly look back at the Philly series... or just the game at WPG.... or untold other games where our systematic failures were on full display, and say that coaching is way down our list of problems, you get much, much less about hockey than I otherwise give you credit for.

No offense, but you must be saying this more to suit your past arguments than because this is what you actually see.
