But Bylsma's teams have so underperformed in the playoffs, that I think it's clear his brand of hockey doesn't win in the playoffs, which everyone agrees is a different kind of hockey. This of course assumes that the Cup victory was not pure "Bylsma hockey" being played.
You can assume correct.

The season after the cup win he implemented his philosophy/system. Needless to say he has been a winner in regular season mostly, one second round oust since the cup. Granted the injuries any coach would have had trouble with what was left, but you're up 3-1 in a series and you can't get your guys to close it out?
