The entire style we played reeked of lack of structure. I just told you a big one... lack of player support. How our guys would constantly go 1 on 2, 2 on 4, and either lose battles/puck when outnumbered or randomly throw the puck at the net in desperation because there was no one to support that player. That's structure, or lack of it, and that's on Bylsma.
How do you know it's not just players trying to do it by themselves?
That would reflect on Bylsma as well. He's the coach. If he's afraid of his players or is unable to control them, then forget about it. May as well have Sid turn player/coach and say bye bye to Bylsma. As I said - and I think we all know it, just sometimes one person takes a stance then keeps at it - it was certainly a combination of a lot of things. I just don't see how Bylsma can get a clear pass on his performance. It wasn't good and guys on the Canadian broadcast pointed to him being possibly fired after the series.
I didn't hear it in person, but I have to trust the poster. Read post #594 from sexyllamma.
