of course, any coach with a positive recent record is deemed a good commodity behind a bench.  Doesn't reflect current or future performances. thought we talked about this thing called "adaptation," but I may be a bit ahead of myself here.

anything else to add to the team's diagnosis and treatment, Doctor Obvious?

No. &#$* that.  bylsma has PROVEN he can not adapt. 

lost to the lightning WHILE UP 3-1. i dont care if there was no malkin or crosby.  NHL playoffs are a team sport.  lets take a different approach: add malkin and crosby that year.  no way they would have won the cup that year anyway.  Fact. 

montreal had a hot goaltender in 2010?  so what, tuuka rask wasn't "hot" this year.  Bruins D was much better, allowing Rask to stand on his head.  If the Bruins D was on the Pens team, Vokoun would have won 4 games as well.  The pens got outplayed and more importantly, outcoached. 

 if a team is preventing your team from scoring, you gotta adapt.  Play more stringent D and waiting for hte O to happen, not forcing it.

   I will say the bruins series the pens hit some posts, had some bounces that didnt go their way, but overall they proved to me they deserved no place in a SCF.  

does bylsma tell malkin and crosby to make stupid passes, or letang to pinch?   in a nutshell: yes.  He allows it, he's the coach, he doesn't provide a backbone for the team to play a fundamental game.   I'm sick of crosby's forced passes ending up on opponent's sticks.  He's the best player in the world.  The amount of times he gives up the puck is mind-boggling.

Bylsma doesn;t reign in his players, doesn't act like a strong fundamental coach.  I actually have zero cares for the Pens next year.  If they win a cup, good on them.  I don't see Pens winning anything, they can only prove me wrong at this point.

bylsma won't win another cup in Pittsburgh with his systems.   he needs to learn adaptation.
