IMO people blame Bylmsa for the sake of blaming someone. He's a great coach, period.

2010 and 2011 playoff losses were 100% not his fault. '10 Pens dominated Montreal every game. They lost cuz of Fleury and Halak.
2011 they were without Sid and Geno. Can't rely on Letestu, Kovalev, Staal, and 2011 Neal to score goals.

As far as rookies and lack of impact, it's not Bylsma's fault that Tangradi, Jeffrey, and Boychuck suck. Players like Vitale and Letestu got their chance and made an immidiate impact. Same with Despres, Bortuzzo, and Engalland. At some point people have to realize that maybe Tangradi just ISN'T GOOD and Bylsma was right to scratch him after 50 games of non existent offense.

Good coach and is on a good path for success in the near future.
