In golf, there's a saying: You shoot for show, and you putt for dough. Well, Bylsma has proven to be quite the shooter.
Jesus Kirk,

Rags went to TWO seven game series against inferior teams and had nothing left for round 3.

And you're really reaching with Laviolette. They got swept by Boston and looked terrible doing it, prompting them to trade two core players who eventually helped the Kings win the Stanley Cup. If I wanted to mess with you and play your game, I could argue that Richards and Carter weren't properly nurtured by Lavs and needed another coach to push the right buttons. I'm almost positive that's what you would do.

And Jersey ran them over last year in their series to boot. You're acting like they brought Jersey and Boston to the brink during their last two eliminations.
