I won't contradict myself and say it doesn't work the other way too.

FYI if this is all leading to Bylsma being a coach who leaves a lot to be desired you won't hear any argument from me, our reasons will just be different.
I have been defending DB since the summer, but I'm not going to pretend he isn't making mistakes I don't agree with. He needs to evolve in several ways to become the coach I think he can be. He is not a good disciplinarian, unless you count the ultra short leash he has for rookies.

It's time he steps up and makes every player be accountable, because this team is heading for another first round exit if he doesn't start to finally instill a tight sense of discipline.
