It's amazing how badly coached the team D on the Pens is and how horribly the team is able to adjust to Boston's strategy. They always make the wrong plays (Pens). Bylsma is not the great coach people make him out to be. He hasn't learned his lessons. After that cup win, what have they done (including losing to us in 7!)?

I would honestly fire Bylsma if he loses this series. No gameplan, just let your horses onto the ice and see what happens. The amount of dumping and chasing that they've tried is stupid, particularly against their opponent. I do, however have tons of respect for Crosby so he's going to have to lead quite the turnaround if it's going to happen. After the last two games, seems like they're out of ideas.
Agreed with you here, the GM did a ton of moves to help you and Bylsma keeps being hard headed and going back with the same lines and strategies. He makes no adjustments during he game, he's like a spectator
