I am on the fire Bylsma bandwagon. just think it's time for a change. The talent is here for at least next year before we have to start thinking about major free-agent decisions.
I disagree. Bylsma has done a great job with this team if you consider all the shit this team has been through over the last 3 years. Crosby, Malkin, and Letang missing significant time. This year you had the lockout-shortened season, and Crosby still missed 12 games. I'd like to see him get a chance to coach this team a whole 82 game season without Crosby and Malkin having major injuries.
I understand the logic of not playing young players in the playoffs. Despres should have played more though. Engellend was seemingly on the ice for every damn goal. Dude couldn't get out of his own way.
I can justify Glass playing over Bennett most of the season. Glass is a career 4th liner. I'm not sure Bennett gains much playing on the 4th line. He's a top six prospect. So I think bringing him up sparingly to play with Geno was better than throwing the guy on the checking line for the sake of him getting more ice time. When Shero brought in Iginila, you knew he was going to play on the 2nd line with Geno and Neal. And you knew Morrow was going to play on the 3rd line with Sutter and Cooke. So I'm not sure Bennett's skill set would be utilized properly on the 4th line.
