Penguins fire Bylsma
One thing is for certain: Dan Bylsma won't be part of the process.
The Penguins fired the franchise's all-time winningest coach on Friday while hiring Rutherford away from the Carolina Hurricanes to replace Ray Shero as general manager. Rutherford's first decision was to end the three weeks of limbo for Bylsma, whose star-laden teams had fallen well short of the Stanley Cup since winning it all in 2009.
"What ownership wants here is a complete change in direction, one with the GM and one with the coach," Rutherford said.
