Sids playing some piss poor hockey and not just by his standards. Turning over pucks in every zone and really, REALLY bad defensively.
This is difficult for me to say....but I agree.

When an entire team is playing this poorly, you've got to point the finger at the coach, I agree.

In fact the hiring of "Disco Dan's" buddy Tony Granato is one of the many stubborn and very silly mistakes Bylsma has been making. Didn't think much of Granato as head coach of Colorado, so I never really wanted him here in Pittsburgh to start with.

Lots of theories, but we don't really know.

All we can say with any degree of certainty is everything they're doing wrong somehow ties into things the coach is responsible for. Either his tactics are wrong or being ignored in favor of just doing whatever and it not working. Might be a little bit of both.

And it doesn't matter anyway...if some fluke occurrence (namely Bylsma runs over a cop in the parking lot and drives away) happens resulting in Bylsma getting fired you know it'd just be Hynes getting promoted. Gotta keep that faultless system in place!
The reason I say Ron Francis would be a good choice is because the guy has an insane amount of hockey knowledge and an endless amount of credibility.

It seems like Bylsma has lost the team, and I don't think he ever knew how to get the most out of the talent he was given.

Hardly.. both big momentum swings came from Fleury flops. This is a much tighter game if we had some goaltending.

I called Strait last season. My quote was "if nisky and strait are wearing another uniform next season, I'll ****ing lose it"

Well, I'm halfway there...

And does anyone else think Fleury is still elite? I'm pretty sure when u put your paddle down on the wraparound and the guy doesn't show up after five minutes, chances are hes probably going to try the other side...

Thank god for the lockout. It soured me on these a holes and all I feel right now is go 9ers...

I agree with this too. This coaching staff, country club atmosphere, nobody is held accountable. So friggen frustrating...

announcers need to wake up, no one is asking they be creative. String together ONE PASS.

Steigy's constant washing of Letang's balls is embarrassing and bordering on creepy.

Jeffrey with the closest thing this game has seen to a good PP shift by a forward on Pitt.

Our 2nd PP looks 100x better than our 1st.

He'll sit next game. You can't have that on this team. Turnovers, and shoddy stickhandling are the norm on OUR PP.
