DAN BYLSMA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Former Penguins defenseman ridicules decision to fire Dan Bylsma

Defenseman Matt Niskanen had some harsh words about the Pittsburgh Penguins and their decision to fire head coach Dan Bylsma back in June. Now with the Washington Capitals, Niskanen was open with his remarks and revealed that he thinks that – to be blunt – that the decision was a poor one. Niskanen’s comments, as seen on Trib Live, were pretty candid regarding Bylsma’s firing...

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.

Source: Dan Bylsma has one job offer already waiting for him if the Pens lose tonight and he is fired.

Huge news. Source confirms: “NASA is always interested in people that look at stars and can’t figure it out. Bylsma is impressive in that category.” (Stole that joke from last years season recap. Thought it was worth it.) Read some real Bylsma stuff from Puck Daddy, and another really well written piece by Dejan. The pressure on Bylsma tonight is extraordinary. It has something...

Penguins lose to Blue in familiar fashion

After a thrilling 4-3 overtime win against the Lightning on Saturday, the Pittsburgh Penguins dropped the second game of their back-to-back home stand against the St. Louis Blues in a game that was eerily reminiscent of their loss to the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Finals last season. St. Louis clogged up traffic in front of their own net and prevented the Penguins from...

Putting Dan Bylsma into Context by @PandaPSU

Is there a more polarizing topic right now than Dan Bylsma? Prior to this season, Pens fans were divided, and I would say fairly evenly, about whether Bylsma should stay with the team this year. After a few years of disappointing playoff exits, many fans were at their wits end with him. Yet many others pointed to his success in the regular season and the injuries the team has faced...

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 to lead the team...

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...
