The goalie was good enough to win a Cup for him. He's been bad. He was out coached by Julienne this year. He was challenged by Capuano. He was severely out coached by Laviolette last year. I just don't see the Rangers being a scenario where he can be more successful, let alone as successful, as he was in Pittsburgh.
Agreed regarding Bylsma. I don't see him as a coach that got the most out of his players, especially lately. The defense and the goaltending are a personnel problem that isn't really his fault. But the fact he got, literally, nothing out of 2 of the best centers in the world vs. Boston is a big concern. What would happen here with much less talent up front? I dont think I want to know.
