My favorite line from watching the sports talks shows here is "50 years from now, we'll look back on this and still have no idea how the Pens lost this series." Watching Milbury and Jones on NBC was like watching them mourn over the loss of a friend, saying how surprising it was. The sweep was the surprise, the results was not. Sure the Pens had all the talent to win a Cup, but that's pretty much it. It takes more than talent to win it. Boston was well coached, well organized, they played a great defensive system, people were in position all the time, passes were sharp and frequent, nobody panicked when they had the puck and they capitalized on defensive breakdowns. That's how the Pens lost. Boston was well prepared. It was obvious from Game 1. Bylsma will be gone, when your expectations are that high and your roster is that loaded, somebody has to take the fall. I just hope they don't go out and get Dave Tippett to replace him. Look at how much he got out of the Coyotes, I would hate to see him in Pittsburgh.
