(all statements true as of 3/02/13)
There seems to be a disturbing trend happening on the amazing collective consciousness we call the internet. Calling for the immediate termination of Pittsburgh Penguins head coach, Dan Bylsma.
Now this curious movement is coming from the most educated corners of twitter, Facebook, and other social media.
Right now there is a small subculture of Penguins "fans" who are fervently calling for the head of Head Coach Dan Bylsma. They want him gone, no questions asked. They want to see his resignation in the Trib, framed, with bold letters. I don't understand this undying need to shake up a first place team.
As of 3/02/13 here are the standings in the entire NHL.
- First in Atlantic Division
- Second in the Eastern Conference
- Fifth in the NHL
- Third Ranked Powerplay
- Second Highest Winning % Active NHL Coaches
- Second in Total Offense
- Jack Adams Winner 2011
- Stanley Cup Winner 2009
I'm sure you'll find something right?
I was going to go over possible replacements for Dan Bylsma but I don't see a point.
Anyone can say anything they want on the internet it doesn't make it a fact. I include this post to that list as well. Maybe I should stick to silly pictures on twitter - who knows. I'm fairly swayed by facts and numbers and until a compelling argument come along I'm going to rely on the facts I found tonight to support my stance of not firing Dan Bylsma. (today)
