@DaedalusRoss you say "cherry pick," i say " give the honest answer in plain facts to an irrational question that has been asked more times without checking than anything." you're the one bringing outside data and now opinion into it. i could write posts about letang's pinches. or the loss to the lightning. and then maybe your opinion would make some iota of sense. but THIS post is about the last 4 years, and that the only coaches with better outcomes and records over that span have all won Cups and are currently employed. indisputable. any replacement had bylsma been fired wouldve been lesser, according to playoff record. this isnt that hard to understand.

@DaedalusRoss Re-read the title and subject of this post. This is in response to everyone who asks "what is Bylsma's record since the Cup?' Nothing prior to 2010 is in play, or Dan would have another 16 wins himself tacked on. Therrien is employed. As stated, there is no available substitute for what Bylsma has done over the past 4 seasons had he been fired, strictly responding to  the playoff record since 2010 inquiry.

@DimaChernysh You're completely going against what I've set out to prove. "Worse rosters" is a total opinion. This data is showing that for everyone that wants Bylsma gone, there is no suitable substitute. Lavvy, Julien and Sutter are all employed. The only "similar" coach in this sense is Vigneault, with his multiple Art Ross winners, an MVP thrown in there and a Quebecois goalie who becomes a headcase at times.

Re-read jamo's comment. Fan expectation needs to change. If you view our roster as "better" than others, you expect x amount of wins every series. With that opinion (again, OPINION) you'd then expect a Cup every year because hey, they're winning every series in 5-6 games! NO coach does that, but the ones with the most recent success were in the final 4 this season. The two most successful are rightfully playing for the Cup now! Does my opinion that the Blackhawks have a better roster in any way discredit Coach Q should Chicago go on to win? And Julien would get a pass because he'd lost with a "lesser" club?

"What is Bylsma's record since the Cup" gets thrown around in a negative way so much that no one compares it to any of his contemporaries when doing so. You really want Torts or Vigneault or DeBoer instead?

 @KingOfNoPants  @YinzerinCT  @not_Yanni yeah people going that far aren't worth the time. after the 1980-2001 MONOPOLY of only gretz, mario and double j winning art ross, the pens are 1 of just 2 teams with multiple art ross winners in the years since. and ours aren't creepy twins.

the pens tried a similar move, only with 2 players to shore up the blue line, and we've seen how that worked out. all eggs in the weber basket means twice the expectations. the flyers have won the weber, nothing more.

re: ahl d-men

 

got a good look at mormina and bortuzzo (as well as strait, little ulf, sneep, etc) while sitting on the glass for a number of baby pens playoff games this season. borts needs to fill out a bit more but can bring it. mormina plays with an "im a dick" edge. borts is an rfa right now, for some reason capgeek has mormina as inactive. not sure what's up with that. ufa, i believe.

 

im a fan of both. hope they're both back, can be unreal callups, potential to replace the lovejoys of the world.

@TheFandangler@dvo@JonKlimasIsNOT_PLAYING_ZANGIEF actually, we count laps by calling out the respective pens players name. so when we get to 66, we'll say MARIO. then we usually do 5 quick laps to get to eugene. then 1 more lap for kovy 2.0. then we'll rocket it up to sid
