Pittsburgh Penguins fire GM Ray Shero, retain Coach Dan Bylsma for now - Vancouver Sun
Penguins notebook: Agent takes name out of running for GM post The Penguins’ search for a new general manager apparently still is in the early stages, but you can cross one name off the list of prospective candidates. Agent Pat Brisson indicated by email Monday he is not a candidate. Brisson, of Creative Arts Agency, represents Penguins center and team captain Sidney Crosby, Chicago star forwards Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, and many others in the NHL. He is based in Los Angeles. Penguins Hall of Fame center and now co-owner Mario Lemieux and Brisson are longtime friends. Brisson said in the email that he “never pursued the position” with the Penguins and added, “I’m happy to be at CAA and to continue representing players.” Two years ago, his name came up when his hometown Montreal Canadiens were looking for a general manager. The Canadiens hired Marc Bergevin. Friday, the Penguins fired Ray Shero after eight years as general manager. They retained Coach Dan Bylsma, who is under contract f ...
Mike Babcock seems to be a favorite coaching target of columnists in other NHL cities. First, a Toronto writer said this month that the Maple Leafs should try to lure Babcock away from the Detroit Red Wings. Days later, the Leafs signed coach Randy Carlyle to an extension. Now it’s Pittsburgh coveting Babs. The Penguins reportedly planned to fire Grand Haven native Dan Bylsma as coach today, though they actually only fired general manager Ray Shero. The new GM will review Bylsma’s job status, the team said. Before the announcement that Bylsma was still on board, local radio talk-show host Mark Madden, in a column for the Pittsburgh Times-Review, said Babcock would be a perfect replacement for him. “Babcock is exactly the coach the Penguins need. He knows how to work with stars and, in particular, knows how to work with Sidney Crosby,” Madden wrote. “Babcock coached Canada and Crosby to the last two Olympic gold medals. He has a Stanley Cup ring and has coached in three finals. Babcock packs lots ...

By Gene Collier / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Penguins co-owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle both told the Post-Gazette today that head Coach Dan Bylsma “absolutely,” could keep his job in the wake of Friday’s firing of general manager Ray Shero. “That’s why we didn’t fire him,” Lemieux said. “He’s a good coach. You look at his record in the regular season, in the playoffs. If he was fired today, there’d be a lot of teams lined up for him. “He’s done a lot of good things for the organization and he’s been a great asset. A new GM will come in, evaluate the hockey operation, and we’ll go from there.” Morehouse announces firing of Penguins GM Ray Shero David Morehouse, on behalf of the Pittsburgh Penguins ownership, announces the firing of General Manager Ray Shero.

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced the firing of GM Ray Shero today, which on its own wasn't terribly shocking. But few were expecting Dan Bylsma to still be the coach of the Penguins today. Could it be they're hoping to have a crack at hiring Mike Babcock next summer?
The Pittsburgh Penguins started cleaning house today by firing general manager Ray Shero and have left it up to the new GM to decide the fate of head Coach Dan Bylsma. Do you think it was a mistake to get rid of Shero? Do you think the new GM should get rid of Bylsma? Or do you think the Pens' stars are to blame for the lackluster playoff performances over the last few years?
Mario Lemieux being asked by Gene Collier if there was chance, Dan Bylsma could keep his job.
I'm rather appalled that the media has stirred a frenzy up looking for Dan Bylsma's head. If you watch hockey all of the time like I do, you must admit that we have had tons of entertainment from our Pens since Dan has been the coach. Today the team relieved Ray Shero of his duties, which may be appropriate. It is his job to equip the coach with the right players. What we need is a good leader like Billy Guiren was. Sid is a superstar player, but that doesn't necessarily equate to a great leader. Dan is a winning coach. How many games did we win this year? How many teams are in the hunt for the Stanley Cup? How many will actually win it this year? Remember folks, this is the toughest trophy in sports to win. This is not football. With the parity in the league, it is unreasonable to believe that you can win the cup year after year. It is the team that is peaking at the right time of the year, that has the hockey gods looking over them (cross bar hits, good bounces, etc.), and the right balance of playe ...
What do you think Bill Cowher thinks about what Dan Bylsma thinks about what the Penguins think about coaching hockey?
So let me get this straight, the Pens fire GM Ray Shero but keep Dan Bylsma? I understand that once a new GM is hired he will probably fire Dan, but why not let him go now based on his track record?? This makes absolutely no sense at all. This also hurts Dans chances of landing another coaching job since they are waiting to fire him and other teams may have their vacancies filled. This organization is total disarray right now...CLUELESS

I'm looking into the Penguins future and I see one without Dan Bylsma, Tony Granato, Rob Scuderi, Brooks Orpik,, Kris Kunitz! Should they go? Ray Shero, Mark Andre Fleury, James Neal, Pascal Dupuis?
A few thoughts on the Pittsburgh Penguins: 1. Dan Bylsma needs to go (assistants too). He by far doesn't deserve most of the blame (that's on the players), but he doesn't illicit passion or focus. That is on the coaches. 2. Marc Andre Fleury needs to stay. Most of the goals he gave up were from lack of back-checking or crease-play, or simply lack of physicality in front of the paint. (Yes, he let in some soft goals, name an elite goalie in the playoffs that hasn't). 3. Improve the power play. I never thought the power play was good, even in the regular season. The Umbrella doesn't work all the time. It's not hard to adjust a power play mid-game. Even the league-worst Ranger power play adjusted in Game 6 and 7. 4. Bench unproductive players. I don't care about 'lack of depth'. If your forwards can't fore-check, play two-ways, or pass well: scratch them. If your defensemen can't back-check, hold the blue line, or commit too many turnovers: scratch them. Wilkes-Barre has players who would dream to play in th ...

Pittsburgh Penguins... Please completely dismantle and make a new team. Clearly an all star team can't play together... it's much less embarrassing to be a team full of scrubs losing than what we presently have. Also, no penguins are ever allowed to play in the Olympics ever again... P.S. Bylsma is allowed to start with the team next year, but will not be allowed to coach in the post season. .scratch that.. Dan Bylsma is Fired!!!

The Penguins have absorbed 215 hits from Columbus in the first four games of their opening-round playoff series. That’s easily the most of any NHL team in these playoffs, and that total doesn’t even include the one their own coach delivered Thursday. Dan Bylsma, asked what aspect of his team’s perfo…
Dan Bylsma is the worse coach ever instead of giving the Team the day off they shoulda been practicing yesterday ..there is no reason for a Team that has players barley good enough to be on the pens 3rd or 4th line Marx ande flurey needs to stay in the Net and crosby well he isnt no leader on that Team if he was the pens woulda had the series wraped up already
During a joint press congress after "mandatory" practice Disco Dan and Iceberg appeared together and commented on the closed to the public skate. Bylsma did report Sidney Crosby was on the ice, a place he has not been seen since the beginning of the Stanley Cup playoffs except for one photograph where it seems that the star forward and team captain thought he was a goalie and had "tagged the Flower" out late in Wednesdays loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. When asked for photographic evidence that the Art Ross trophy and two time Olympic gold medalist Captain had been on the ice and was actually making shots on goal, Iceberg remained silent and stoic on the subject. Dan Bylsma, the Stanley Cup winning coach of the Penguins had also said that the defense had shown up, and they all apologized for their tardiness. In a strange turn if events, the Defense's alarm clock didn't go off and the dog ate the white board that the signature 1-2-2 defensive scheme Bylsma had drawn up was on. The Columbus Blue Jackets ...

Pens Heed Bylsma's Call: On Thursday afternoon Penguins head Coach Dan Bylsma was asked what has been the most...
Coach Dan Bylsma is not holding back. Normally reserved in public comments, Bylsma offered harsh words for his team following a 4-3 overtime loss at Columbus on Wednesday that tied the first-round Stanley Cup playoff series at two games apiece. He said goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury misplayed a puck, the Penguins needed better effort from all players, and franchise centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin need to score. “The work and compete and the battle level has probably been the most troubling thing from our team,” Bylsma said Thursday, a Penguins off day leading to Game 5 on Saturday at Consol Energy Center. Asked whether Fleury was correct to play a bouncing puck behind his net late in regulation — a gaffe that led to Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky's game-tying goal — Bylsma didn't take his goalie's side. “Typically the rule of thumb is the puck's on the glass, you stay in the net. Puck's on the dasher, you have a truer read on the play,” Bylsma said. “Given the time of the game, t ...

Penguins Coach Dan Bylsma calls out his team on work ethic against Columbus. has the story:
So Dan Bylsma calls out his team, and we'll have clips of that today at the opening of the show. He did it through the media, but did he say it directly to them? About time, or is it too late for that? I have been searching for a word that describes what/who the Penguins are missing. I finally came up with it last night while watching Boston/Detroit. I'll tell you at 12:15, and Rob Rossi will join us at 12:30 with the latest from Pens practice. It's not too early to think the Pirates are in trouble. Is it Gregory Polanco time? And Matt Williamson will join Tim and me at 1:30 to talk about the draft, and specifically 2 players who are shooting up the charts.
With his goaltender in the crosshairs, Dan Bylsma called out his whole club on Thursday.

Dan Bylsma go take a spa day n let my lil bro coach..he makes better calls at 15.
More proof that Dan Bylsma is a Jack *** Watch Jarome Iginla play and thrive on the right wing in Boston. Funny how Bylsma couldn't figure out that a right wing should play right wing. I hope Iggy gets the cup winning goal this year.
You know I blame Dan Bylsma for Pens underperforming but had Shero kept Jordan Staal and traded Geno this would be a different team.
Dan Bylsma: Please stop playing Paul Martin, he is the worst defensemen in the nhl.
Dan Bylsma is in disbelief over the call to Adams, on the Penalty Kill now
If Penguins manage to win this game, not sure which coach should offer post-game reaction, Dan Bylsma or John Hynes from Wilkes-Barre.
Congrats to Dan Bylsma on win number 250, fastest coach to reach it in NHL history
Dan Bylsma's playoff record is 36-29 with 1 Stanley Cup Championship his first season as coach. With all that talent that's not good.

I'm old enough to remember when people talked about Bill Cowher the same way they talk about Dan Bylsma.
I would never root against my country but I guess Dan Bylsma you get what you get for not starting
I'm way more sad for Jonathan Quick than anyone else. As usual Dan Bylsma can't figure out how to alter his game plan on the fly.
“Dan Bylsma's probably going all Herb Brooks in the locker room right now.”
Ok I get the fact that Oshie was the hero in the SO against Russia but Dan Bylsma *** were you thinking not shooting Patrick Kane at all? Always thought he was moron!
SOCHI, Russia — As the United States and Canada men’s ice hockey teams stare down a potential Olympic semifinal meeting with only quarterfinal matchups today standing between them, Canada coach Mike Babcock has a problem on his hands that Team USA Coach Dan Bylsma can’t really comprehend: Of all thi...
After the weekend events at the Olympics in Sochi, the Netherlands leads with 17 medals, while Russia is 2nd with 16, while the United States is 3rd, also with 16. That is because they both have 4 gold medals, but Russia has 7 silver compared to the U.S.’s 4 silver medals. T.J. Oshie scored four times in the shootout and got the winner in the eighth round, leading the United States past Russia 3 to 2 on Saturday in the thrilling revival of an Olympic hockey rivalry. Cam Fowler and Joe Pavelski scored in regulation for the Americans in the marquee game of the preliminary round. Jonathan Quick made 29 saves and stopped five attempts in the shootout. International rules allow the same player to take multiple shots after the first three rounds of a shootout, and U.S. Coach Dan Bylsma leaned on Oshie. The Saint Louis forward went 4 for 6 against Sergei Bobrovsky. Phil Kessel scored two of his three goals in the opening 4:33 and became the first U.S. player with an Olympic hat trick in more than a decad ...

Fans aren't the only ones looking for stuff to do during the Olympic break. Being slightly too old for new parts, Pascal Dupuis has his ACL rebuilt using parts from cadaver pigs. No word on how the Flyers felt when they woke up without their parts. Dan Bylsma has sent to the US for some new coloring books to keep Peter Laviolette busy. Dan remarked that "Some of those 'Spot the Differences' books would be cool, too." Team USA GM Ray Shero trades 4 chickens, and a promise of using more maple syrup during team breakfasts, to Team Canada in exchange for Sidney Crosby. As Sid leaves the Canadian team's hotel, he remarks to a confused Steve Yzerman, "You know, we don't even HAVE team breakfasts." There are also confirmed reports that Shero traded a broken, empty Yuengling bottle, some expired catnip, and Peter Laviolette to St. Louis for T.J. Oshie before today's epic shootout was even over. Filming for a new documentary called "When Good Arteries Go Bad", starring Tómâs Vokoun and Kris Letang, is constantly ...
Dan Bylsma is looking like a genius for pairing Joe Pavelski and Phil Kessel on the first line.

Dan Bylsma is banking on Jonathan Quick coming up big again for the United States on Saturday.
SOCHI -- Any curiosity American Coach Dan Bylsma might have had about how a team he’s still getting to know would respond to some adversity went away quickly in the second period Thursday. After watching Slovakia forward Tomas Tatar get away with going into the zone offside to score a game-tying goal 24 seconds in, the Americans responded with six unanswered goals before the second intermission, blowing what was a tight game wide open en route to a 7-1 throttling of the Slovaks in the tournament opener for both teams at Shayba Arena. The U.S. had six different goal scorers and 11 players with at least one point, led by Phil Kessel’s three. Paul Stastny scored twice, John Carlson had a goal and an assist, and T.J. Oshie, James van Riemsdyk and Patrick Kane each had two assists. Ryan Kesler, Dustin Brown and David Backes also scored for the Americans. Jonathan Quick made 22 saves in his Olympic debut to help the U.S. beat Slovakia for the first time in the Olympics. The Americans previously had tied the ...
SOCHI, Russia -- Five thoughts from Team USA's dominant 7-1 win over Slovakia: 1. Kane-Kesler killing it: Yes, Phil Kessel led the Americans in their dismantling of Slovakia on a goal and two assists, including a nice drop pass to set up the game's first goal by John Carlson. But the guy who was most impressive in the surprising blowout win was Patrick Kane. His handling of the puck on the wider ice in Sochi was a treat to see, and Coach Dan Bylsma clearly is sold on the Kane-Ryan Kesler duo as a keeper. The two finished the 2010 Vancouver Olympics playing together, and they picked up where they left off, enjoying a dynamic game Thursday. Kane had two assists, and Kesler and Dustin Brown each had a goal. If both of Team USA's big lines keep rolling, it will put a lot of pressure on the Russian defense Saturday. But keep your eye on Kane, who could be adding to his already impressive hockey résumé. 2. Stastny kicks it down: Great start for Paul Stastny, who had two goals against the country in which both ...
