Bylsma must be fired. If he's not fired, I will not follow this team until this entire staff is gone. I was his biggest supporter, but he's done here. Shero can't allow this to happen and then tell the world that it's alright. The players will stop playing if they think Bylsma can take this top 5 team into the playoffs and not win a single game.
That's where i'm at. I was a supporter too, but he let this team completely collapse over the past month. He's the guy in charge and it happened under his watch. It's his fault. This roster is definitely not perfect so Shero doesn't escape blame, but there's no way it's this bad.
I know it's got nothing with winning and loosing but Cookie has been invisible
He needs to be gone. He's outlived his usefulness. He's neutered his game, and gets penalties just for being Cooke. Just like Ruutu before he was let go.
Replace Cooke with Tangradi, Trade Kennedy and Martin to try to upgrade with a top 6 winger, Give Bennett a shot to play on Staal's line in Kennedy's place and Despres to play in Martin's, Trade Orpik for anything just to get his ****** attitude and piss poor play out of the locker room, Give Morrow a shot to play in Orpik's spot, Trade Lovejoy for a bag of pucks, let Strait and Bortuzzo battle for the 7th defenseman position, get rid of Adams and let Jeffrey play everyday NHL minutes on the 4th line.
