This team makes me feel nostalgic for the days of my youth. Where Americans everywhere became family.

I take my avatar comments back. Sister Sledge Avatars this summer and into next year are appropriate. If painful.

Pretty much he said he's not a coach and that he asked the players about other coaches they had in the past. Then he somehow ended up on that coaches can make too many adjustments at times, and that game 2 killed us.

I'm just going to start mourning next year's playoff elimination, now. That might end Bylsma, maybe, possibly, probably not.

The issues start at the top, there's nothing that can be done for that. Not unless they start making less money. Things do unfortunately make a lot more sense now.

It feels worse.

Way worse.


Things won't change, and this team is a bunch of losers. This is not 2009 anymore.

It's worse than that; it feels like another sweep is coming and everyone is content to accept it.

On the one hand, I DO ADMIRE the willingness of the staff to put together a culture that does show some respect and allegiance to player who had a bad season. And we always talk in sports about how good teams never stay together anymore that FA ruins everything... so there's that.

But the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction. Having allegiance to a fault is no better than having none, IF the #1 goal of the organization is winning titles. I'm not sure that it is right now. They may THINK it is, and they may feel like they're "doing the right thing" with all this. But from an outside perspective, the accountability definitely takes a hit.

2. adjustments were made by the time they got to game three. has no idea what happened in game two. actually nobody from the players to the coach has any idea what happened in game two.

3. SOMETIMEZ 2 MANY ADJUSTMENTS ARE MADE!

We have to face some hard truths today. This organization doesn't care about winning as much as we thought they do. They just want to be a big happy family together. This is one of the saddest days in Penguins history. I feel worse today than when the Red Wings took the cup in Game 6. At least I could believe in the future of that team.

Hopefully this kills the church of ray that has been established here over the years. The man is the most overrated GM in the league. He gave up Joe Morrow a guy who was one of the teams top prospects for a guy he apparently knew was going into the bottom 6. We all knew it was a trash move and it played out as one. He doubled down on the failures of Bylsma and Fleury. He went out to get Iginla.. why? If he knew full well there wasnt a RW slot for him why on earth did he shell out what he did for that? The man was gift wrapped two generational talents and most all the core pieces of the team and the only thing he has to show for it was 1 cup win years ago. Meanwhile teams with less now are approaching their 2nd in a shorter duration of time. It's time for the buck to stop with him and people focusing their anger soley on Bylsma perhaps need to rethink their manlove for the guy who apparently believs Dan Bylsma is just a swell coach.

Absolutely correct. He is just as stubborn and arrogant as Bylsma. I think he is the president of the church of ray. The guy literally believes he can do no wrong. Let's also not forget he tried to extend Staal last summer and keep the 3-center model that got picked apart by Philly and was no longer viable. He is like the kid a preschool trying to pound the square peg in the round hole.
