By the way, I think you're right about how Bylsma is going to interpret tonight's game.

Anyway, did you see that too, not just a change, but that it really looked like he was going to go over the edge (again, not talking the 'pissed at the Flyers' type over the edge)?
Seriously, do you think Bylsma tells Geno to forget D and focus completely on O?

I can tell you that he doesn't have any different of a rule as far as defensive play for Geno as he does for Sid, Sutter, or Vitale. Sid and Geno both really like Dan so unless that changes he will be here.

On a side note, there is also a really good chance that he coaches the US Olympic team in 2014 if the NHL reaches a deal to continue to allow for NHL players to go to the Olympics. He is one of 2 under consideration. (Tortorella being the other).
