DAN BYLSMA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bylsma goes on the record (a bit) for first time since Pens firing

Dan Bylsma might have some hard feelings after being let go by the Pittsburgh Penguins this summer, but he certainly didn’t air those grievances during his first newspaper interview since that happened. Instead, he pretty much raved about what once was to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Rob Rossi. “I think we were a model,” Bylsma said. “We had stability, great stability...

Bylsma’s chances of starting 2014-15 as a head coach are dwindling

When the Pittsburgh Penguins fired Dan Bylsma it sent a wave through the coaching market, but as the waters calm it looks like every team that had a vacancy will pass on the former Stanley Cup and Jack Adams winner. The Carolina Hurricanes ultimately hired former Detroit Red Wings assistant coach Bill Peters while the Florida Panthers have announced that Montreal Canadiens assistant...

Pittsburgh Penguins hire Jim Rutherford as GM

Talk about out of left field. For weeks rumors had been circulating about who the Pittsburgh Penguins would hire as their next General Manager.  Names like Julian BrisBois and Jason Botterill were floated around as potential front runners. So when the team announced that former Carolina Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford had been hired instead, needless to say it left many more than a...

Dan Bylsma: Enough is ENOUGH! by @ExcitedBobErrey

I told myself I wouldn't write this post.I told myself I wouldn't compare Team USA under Dan Bylsma and the Pittsburgh Penguins under Dan Bylsma, because they're two completely different situations. The outcome of the Olympics does not affect Dan Bylsma's ability as coach of the Pens in the slightest. A Gold Medal for Team USA wouldn't make Dan Bylsma more likely...

Does Pittsburgh Deserve Bylsma? by @ChicksDigHockey

 It must be hard to be a coach or sports figure in the contentious world of Pittsburgh sports. The rabid sports fans of Southwestern Pennsylvania demand an unattainable level of perfection and accountability that leaves little room for the frailties of mortality. I offer the example of Dan Bylsma. He made the mistake of coaching the Penguins to a Stanley Cup victory the same year...

Penguins Update: Bylsma Gets a “Therrien Chip”

As a hockey fan who’s grown disenchanted with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ erratic team defense—particularly during the playoffs—I’ve often wished the Pens could figure a way to implant a Michel Therrien chip into Dan Bylsma’s noggin. Then the black and gold would have the best of both worlds—an upbeat, popular coach who could instill in his troops a sense of defensive...

Double Overtime Game Lost Thanks to Coach Bylsma’s Prevent Defense

Penguins coach Dan Bylsma lost the game last night.  It wasn’t a bad play, it wasn’t a better team, it’s wasn’t poor play by his team, it wasn’t the drop play that Bylsma kept referring to in his post game interview. It was bad coaching. It is 100% Dan Bylsma’s inability to go for the kill is what lost last night’s double overtime game against the Ottawa Senators. ...
