DAN BYLSMA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ehrhoff and Johnston Just What Letang Needed by @MadChad412

What good is having extremely talented players if you refuse to put them in the best position to succeed? For all of the successes that Dan Bylsma had as head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins, perhaps his biggest folly was not adapting his philosophies to his players, instead forcing them to adapt to his system. Bylsma, who liked to play aging veterans as well guys that would "...

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...

Where do the Pittsburgh Penguins Go From Here? (Part 1)

With another disappointing early exit from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, a lot has been made about Dan Bylsma’s tenure as Head Coach. Seems like the consensus is to let Bylsma go and bring in a new coach. Bylsma is only part of the problem, but you have to start somewhere, right?

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...

What if Dan Bylsma Wasn’t The Penguins Head Coach?

Imagine if the Penguins didn’t have Dan Bylsma. Craig Adams wouldn’t have a job. No “Dan and Dan” show. There would be nobody to blame for everything when the Penguins go south, aside from Marc-Andre Fleury of course. Much speculation was made entering the 2013 NHL Playoffs  regarding the future of Pittsburgh Penguins coach Bylsma. [...]
