@firefox91 "But it's okay to trash Bylsma on a regular basis who had more influence in the Pens winning their 09"

MT had more of a influence on winning the SC then Byslma did. His greatest strength was he wasn't MT and the year after then won the cup it was then that DB installed the "system" we saw for the next 5 years. That was when DB truly implemented himself into the team.


How did that system work in the playoffs? Oh yeah pretty fucking badly is how that worked out. Fucked up badly in the playoffs to the point of utter embarassment.

@Quote_The_Birdman Yeah I totally forgot. Because you won ONE cup means you buy sainthood forever within the fan base. You get over yourself. Just because you won a title doesn't immune you from criticism and in the last 5 years there can be a TON of criticism leveled towards DB because of how he approached the opposition, his game strategies, his stubbornness to change, his handling of players to his failure to believe in matchups.

Unless your the Steelers, a title doesn't immune ANY coach from criticism. Randy Carlyle one a cup with the Ducks but that didn't stop the Ducks from shitcanning him when the results went south and it was clear a change needed to be made.

@Animals @TheMoleman " The reg season is pretty meaningless and the coaches don't play the games."

That is such a fallacy and you know it. In order to even get into the playoffs you have to succeed in the regular season and obviously in order to do that you have to play the games and take them seriously. Yeah they may be meaningless to YOU, but in the grand scheme of things you need to succeed them in order to get into the playoffs and play for the best seed that can put you in the right position you want to be in for the playoffs.


Yeah it's meaningless to someone like you because you like everyone else beyond belief in this fanbase is incredibly spoiled.

@TheMoleman "Sure it's early" Yeah your right it's early and good team lose to other good teams all the time in November. Shit happens. Plus there is a HUGE difference if you look at the system Johnston has put in, it's built to win in the playoffs because there's toughness, shots, puck possession and i'm not the only person saying this.

"We know we talk about Dan Bylsma alot. We’re still not over how he ruined the last five years."

Neither are many others. Sure we can certainly put blame on the players for underachieving, but Christ that man made coaching blunder after coaching blunder from scheme and to how he approached to playing the opposition (i.e fuck matchups) that he really did have a hand in the Pens playoff failures.

"but he mangled a potential dynasty. Like it or not, that is what happened"

Yup that's exactly what happened. Making the playoffs and winning your division is great, but when you constantly lose to lower seeds, blow series leads constantly and lose in horrible and embarassing way like howthe team lost to Philly and Boston, that falls on the coach because you can't properly reign in your players when there playing poorly or constantly making mistakes and when he FO realizes nothing is going to change with this guy at the helm, he's got to go. If anything they held on to him too long.

They brought in Tocchet for one reason: To be a bad cop on the coaching staff and to provide accountability towards the players when they screw up. Something that was sorely lacking from the previous regime.

@seannnn5308 Actually in the 2nd SB he played out of his mind, espically at the end when on that drive where he threw that game winning TD to Santonio to win the SB. Not to mention no Ben=NO SB. Simple as that and it doesn't matter what type of defense you have.


But hey, keep spewing stuff that was discredit eons ago.

@Billyho I'm shocked they haven't done it already. I look forward to it if they rip it to pieces like they did when they took that shit Adam Proteau wrote about the Pens being hypocrites. That was probably one of the best post the staff has ever written.
They left no stone unturned on that one that's for sure.

@Hibbits Actually his new wingers are going to be good. As for Neal, he'll get over with it. The guy simply wasn't getting it done in the postseason. In fact since he was traded here he has never gotten it done in the postseason and when your a team that has underachieved the last 5 years something has to change in terms of personnel. Getting rid of Neal was a easy call to make.

@Rage Meh only 20 minutes of it was fulgy. The rest of pure gold.

You know whats better then seeing the Pens beat the Flyers in their barn? Seeing it in person and walking out of the building with a huge grin on your face. Last time I was in Philly for a Pens Flyers game was in 2008 for the EC finals.I was pelted with tennis balls by some asshole on the way it, was shoved into a wall and got beer spiited on my face by some douche in a orange wig as I was making my way to my seat but the team won (the next game they clinched the series) and no matter what they said or threw at me I didn't care because we kicked their fucking asses.

Go Pens!!
