Default Pens making news again: Blysma to be Head Coach of Team USA

2014 Winter Olympics will have Blysma as head coach

Shero and Poile will be in charge.

Very interesting stuff. If Bylsma gets USA a gold medal his expectations as head coach of the Penguins is going to go through the roof..... Again

So we got Blysma/Shero vs Crosby

Hope the team is ready to do stretch passes and leave their goalie out to dry consistently.

Pretty sure Vokoun is a good goalie. Especially considering his defense is not required to play in front of him.

Why does this guy keep getting these type of accolades when he stinks as a head coach? he has had the most talented team in the NHL the last 3 years and has NOTHING to show for it.

Awesome! Less competition for Canada. Just need Russia to name Alexei Yashin and Sweden to name Ulf Samuelsson head coach and we're set!

Because the media report that anything and everything Pittsburgh Penguins is the best thing in hockey. I could go into more detail, but that is why. It's also why they're ALREADY favored in Vegas to win the Cup next year. SMFH.

You now know the pain of us Pens' fans.

Ivan Hlinka

I will never forget Ryan Miller getting a standing ovation at the Pens game and people chanting USA then Crosby got a few cheers haha.

It was awkward

Can't say that I'm excited about this choice!

I WAS looking forward to the 2014 tournament, but now have mixed feelings that Blysma has been named the coach.

With Shero and Poile behind them. I'm sure they are going to pick a solid team.

I don't care if you hate HCDB, you gotta support the players too. They are going to rep our country

Plus who knows, maybe HCDB will be rejuvenated if they win Gold!

My feelings on Blysma has absolutely nothing to do with me supporting my countries players, as I have always supported Team USA and will continue regardless of who the Coach may be.

That being said, as far as DB I'm not so sure his style of 'hockey' will be successful in a Tournament that not only plays out on larger ice surfaces, but tends to be more of a European style of game that has to be adapted to!

I wasn't really directing that at you , it was more of general statement bc there is some hate for HCDB

I do agree his "style" may not work well on a larger surface but I'm sure he would be able to adjust. It's going to be an awesome tournament, I wonder if Vikingstad will be playing again

Indeed it does. No matter who Team USA's coach is, the team will be just fine with Quick in goal and Miller and/or Anderson backing him up.
