Since everyone is singing Babs' praises about his Olympic record, we should do well to remember Blysma preciding over the embarrassing effort and collapse of Team USA at the Olympics last year. That was a good roster.
This gets brought up a lot, and I don't think its fair to Bylsma. Their 'embarrassing effort and collapse' was a 1-0 loss to CANADA in the semi's, a hard fought match that could've gone either way. They were there to avenge a loss from four years ago, which is probably why they didn't care about bronze.
Not saying Bylsma is a great coach, not saying Bylsma over Blashill, nor am I denying that the talent he's had was a huge part of his success. All I'm saying is that his performance at the Olympics wasn't a complete disaster.
