This is a new season under unique circumstances, and Bylsma has a better record than Therrien had in his last 25 games.

We just keep going round and round on this one. I'm confident my opinion will be vindicated here, so I won't say much more on the subject until there's been enough time for timing/rust issues to be sort out this season.

Before the year started, I don't think anyone envisioned calling for Bylsma's head after a 3-3 start. Lockout blue balls are causing impatience and a glib dismissal of the lack of prep time before this season.
