Not as fast as the Flyers thread did.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Keep telling yourself and the Devils that.

That mentality is why the Flyers long streak of abject futility continues to this very day.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

AWESOME...............it wouldn't be so bad if the guy would admit failure, and implement some changes. But no, he goes with the theory that, if you smash your head into a brick wall enough times, eventually it will break through. I can't wait to see more of his garabage pond hockey system...........everyone will just trap to death, and eliminate the stretch pass, and take advantage of the fact that our d-men get to pretend they are forwards............unreal, totally unreal

Re: The 2013 Penguins Season Thread

The Pens were 44-19 under Bylsma this year. Four wins from being in the final. I call that a good season. If he had failed to make the playoffs then I could see him being fired, but come on his record as a coach speaks for itself. This team is not in a rebuilding mode and still has two of the best players in the world on its team.

Bylsma is a good coach. I'm glad they kept him. They won a bunch of games, and almost got to the big show. Crosby and Malkin could not find the net, not the coaches fault!

I see said the Blind Carpenter to his Deaf Helper as he picked up his Hammer and Saw!

The problem lies in the fact that Disco refuses to adapt to situations as a coach.............as soon as a team can go into a trap, and prevent the ice length stretch pasees, the Pens are pretty much done, and he refuses to find some kind of system to break the trap, the reliance is all on the long pass........if D-men are forced to try and skate through the trap, they end up turning the puck over, or go for the stretch pass resulting in a turnover IE: Letang, and Engelland against the B's.........

Sure, SID and GENO didn't score, or have an outstanding series against the B's but for Pete's sake, the coach could try and do something to help them out a little bit.......it doesn't matter how good the players are, if they are playing in a broken system......
