Penguins fire coach after he leads team to 109 point season
Nothing like waiting till Friday afternoon to make a bunch of personnel moves, but it happened. I am sure none of us should be shocked that Dan Bylsma was fired by the Pittsburgh Penguins today, because we were told that it was probably coming. Bylsma’s crime, his team didn’t make it past the second round of the NHL playoffs. Wrap your finger around this, Bylsma led his team to a 51 win, 109 points season. No seriously.
Bylsma is a good coach and won't be unemployed very long. The Grand Haven product led the Pengiuns to a 252-117-32 (.628) in five plus seasons.
