Panthers hiring Bylsma is a no-brainer. Best available coach out there.

If I were the Pens, I’d be more interested in Wille Desjardins.

Or the Pens can stay internally and go with John Hynes of WBS.

Bylsma deserved to get fired. But he deserved it when Shero was let go, not 3 weeks later. Shabby treatment by the ownership.

Shabby treatment by the ownership.

The NHL’s model franchise.

+19 Awould. A clean slate would have been logical. A piecemeal clearing only serves to show they don’t know what they’re doing.

I was looking foward to not having to listen to mcguire on tv.

Also, I would have loved watching that train wreck of a hiring.

Instead, they went with Rutherford??

I know jimmy Rutherford, I got his autograph when he played for the wings almost 40 years ago!!! What is he like 70!??!

Seriously,  why not hire Scotty Bowman while your at it?

What a weird hire.  Despite the one Cup win, Rutherford has had a pretty unimpressive record and only lasted as long due to Karmanos’ absurd loyalty.  The team has two of the best forwards and several decent tradeable resources and they hire Jim Rutherford?
