It doesn't matter who we have in the line-up, as long as Bylsma is our coach, no one is comfortable about the playoffs.

That's being honest.

Yes. We have the same problems as we had last year plus another year of evidence that nothing will change. And an inferior roster to last year, including no Vokoun.

Playoffs are just icing for this franchise. It is about the regular season and maxing out the revenue. As long as the arena is a sellout and people buy crap that is the goal. if they win good, but there is no pressure to do so anymore.

Bylsma's the only scapegoat standing between Shero and our poor playoff performance. I'd imagine Shero would want him back. If they don't win when DB is gone he's next on the hotseat.

He should so be playing right wing. Bortuzzo sitting against Philly is moronic, too.

Rinaldo taking runs in the final minute. Malkin on the ice. Take him off!

No fight in this team, from whistle to whistle. Nice.

You're right.

I'll admit that I didn't see it until MTLPensFan asked me to take a 'glasses removed' look at him.

Now, it's hard not to see him as being as much a part of the problem as Bylsma.

If anything, I see Bylsma as a junkie and Shero as his dealer.

I missed the first 40. Looks pretty bad and all i see this period is a bunch of wasted money in the garbage we have in the bottom 6. Yuck.

It didn't look to me that the Pens got 25 shots on goal.

It should, but it won't.

If there is any brightside to this, its that the Pens won't enter the playoffs as favorites to win the cup. That pressure will be gone.

You know, I'm not sure Dan, Ray, and Mario are the 3 Stooges.

They're the "See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil" monkeys.

Sid and Geno should be released to the masses in southside right now. What a ****ing joke those two were.

I wouldn't necessarily be comfortable if he was gone, not with how Shero has constructed this team.

But, at least there would be hope.

no, but I'd be much more comfortable going into the off-season knowing that Disco wasn't giving any input on the moves we make. The core is there, we mostly just need to cut the fat and replace them with better complimentary pieces.

For me, the assumption is that some of the guys on this team are here because they are Bylsma's type and Shero might be listening too much to what Bylsma wants/wanted for this line-up.

I really am not a fan of Bylsma like everyone else here, but I am also starting to dislike Shero.
