I believe Bylsma is a huge reason the US were puny in the elimination rounds and against tough teams.
I also think there were issues with the teams build. Too much focus was placed on "grit, leadership, physicality" and not enough on creativity, transition game, and passing. Certain players are roster locks. But. The depth and bottomo half of the roster is not. Orpik? Martin? Brown? So many questionable decisions and it did not pay off.
Yandle and Bobby Ryan are probably the only 2 players left off that were questionable and I don't think they would have made much difference. Paul Martin getting injured really hurt. USA still doesn't have the depth that Canada has especially with d men. Look at Canada's d men compared to the US. They are the ones making the difference for Canada right now as they aren't scoring much either.
