You picked Bylsma...when given Tortorella or Lavi...
You should open your eyes...look out at the ice and see...
Seriously though, there is no reason why Bylsma should even be compared to the other two. Yes, Torts sucks with younger kids, but there are no rookies on a world stage such as the Olympics. And realistically, nobody inspires better short-term than Lavi. Sure whether or not his ability to install fear becomes a eye-roll worthy gesture in front of his team over years of time is questionable, but it still has an immediate impact.
Tortorella and Laviolette are legitimate team USA candidates. Bylsma is not.
