The Pens today made Dan Bylsma’s position as coach a permanent one. The Pens and Bylsma agreed to a multi year contract last night. The specific terms of the deal were not released.
The transformation the Pens underwent under Bylsma was nothing short of amazing. The team went 18-3-4 in the final 25 games of the regular season. They were able to get into the playoffs when it seemed it would not happen.
I think this is great. I believe Bylsma has earned an opportunity to run this team. His leadership style and stratagies seem to be perfect for the mix of talent on the Penguins roster.
