I like Maclean as our coach but Dan is a top 3-5 coach in the league, no way would I say no to him to be Ottawa's coach.
Exhibit A as to how hockey doesn't matter on ESPN:
Last night an ESPN program was discussing how the Detroit Pistons needed a hero citing the heroes on the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions and no mention of the Detroit Red Wings. All this despite the Red Wings probably being the most succesful team in Detroit right now.
I think Bylsma may have become complacent, which happens often when you've got so much talent driving you forward. But look at the playoffs: he's being out-coached and out-matched by Laviolette so far this series, last year he gets a pass because Crosby and Malkin were out, but then in 2010 with a prime Crosby, Malkin and Fleury he was badly out-coached by Montreal's Jacques Martin. Since their Stanley Cup and Crosby's breakout year, there's been a huge disconnect between the Pens' talent and their playoff success. I see that as a coaching issue.
