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.

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..

Pens Coach Dan Bylsma told me it was the best example of the Penguins playing thier game and not varying from it. Can they do that tonight - Will they do that in the 3rd to grab a 3-2 advantage in this series?
why does everyone in the world know that Dubinsky is frustrating Crosby except Dan Bylsma
is Dan Bylsma's job in jeooardy with another lackluster playoff performance?

It's neck and neck right now: Should Dan Bylsma or Peter Laviolette be the next coach of the Cast your vote:
Dan Bylsma should probably win an Academy Award for his portrayal of Captain Edward Smith right now.
your guess is as good as mine. Like Dan Bylsma tells us, it a day-to-day thing
Dan Bylsma I see u in street I suplex u 10 times make u humble old country way
“Unfortunately the bouncing puck behind the net in the last 30 seconds of the game cost us, but he was our BEST PLAYER IN THE GAME.” Tonight on Channel 11 News at 5:10, Dan Bylsma strongly defends his goaltender, plus more on how the plan to rebound from last night’s heartbreaking loss.
Brooks Orpik isn't playing and that further shows just how stupid Dan Bylsma is
So who replaces Dan Bylsma in Pit when they lose?
I wonder if Dan Bylsma is regretting not taking Jack Johnson on Team USA
Maybe Dan Bylsma should tell Sid to stop getting involved post whistles.
DP- The Dan and Dan outtakes were the best! It shows a totally different side of Coach Bylsma! Thanks for the laugh!
Interesting that Dan Bylsma will go with Bortuzzo/Rob Scuderi. Kris Letang will start with Paul Martin and Olli Maatta a…
I love how both Todd Richards and Dan Bylsma spoke at our hockey banquets
Dan Bylsma. let's see him win a Cup without Tom Fitzgerald on his bench. (It won't happen)
Dan Bylsma with nice reference to NY Islanders 4 Cups, + young Oilers walking by the Islander's room after getting beat, seeing ice-bags etc
Awkward silence after Cassie Campbell asked Dan Bylsma about Marc-Andre Fleury in a CBC interview.
Dan Bylsma: "Marc-Andre Fleury was the best player for the Penguins in game 4"
Rember that time the Penguins had Jerome Iginla and Dan Bylsma wasted him? Me too.
Man, Dan Bylsma is so out-classed in this Stanley Cup playoff. It's especially evident watching the Detroit-Boston and St. Louis-Chicago series.
,Penguins play @ 4:00 I hope Dan Bylsma has a line thru Fleury's name In the lineup card an Pencils in Zatkoff
Dan bylsma knows how to make a girl crazy. The thought of Brooks Orpik and David Backes practicing together makes my heart race. Whew.
Dan Bylsma has been this teams week spot for nearly 4 years. Therien's team won the cup and talent gave Dan his winning record.
For the next head coach, my guess would be Barry Trotz, Peter Laviolette, or Dan Bylsma who I doubt will survive the postseason.
Dan Bylsma would be a dream, his era in Pittsbourgh is over
Laviolette sure... Trotz is a solid "maybe". Disco Dan is a "not only no, but *** NO!" Bylsma's cup is really Therrien's.
Dan Bylsma would be great. He would demand respect by everyone. Somehow I don't think he will be released.
coach wise...I think you're looking at Barry Trotz, Dan Bylsma (depending what happens there), Peter Laviolette...
If you are expecting Dan Bylsma to change now, you don't understand coaches. They will die on their own sword than admit change.
should hire Bob Woods (Boudreau's assistant w/ Caps & Ducks), Peter Laviolette, Guy Boucher, Or Dan Bylsma (if the Pens fire him).
Todd Richards saying Dan Bylsma has been doing a good job. How cute...or he's just hoping he continues to dominate him strategically.
Todd Richards says Dan Bylsma has done a really good job at designing plays/formations/strategies for faceoffs.

Also see: Schottenheimer, Marty and Lewis, Marvin, and maybe soon, Bylsma, Dan.
it will be egno because Dan Bylsma that's why
Dan Bylsma elicited laughs by opening his remarks saying, "Brooks Orpik skated at an undisclosed location with David Bac…
if the Penguins falter in these playoffs, they should replace Dan Bylsma with that mustached overactor playing the Pens coach in that movie
Perhaps Dan Bylsma's message got through. A day after Bylsma questioned his players' effort and passion in their first-round Stanley Cup playoffs...
Dan Bylsma questions teams effort the day after the game? in save your job mode right now. a very nice person but a horrible coach
Crosby, Malkin Know They Must Be Better: On Thursday, Penguins head Coach Dan Bylsma said the team needed more...
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 ...
And the Pressure mounts little one .MARIO has spoken .WIN OR LOSE ...THIS WILL BE A GRAND OFF SEASON, witnessing a major overhaul with this club starting with you, Dan Bylsma ✌️
