Game On!!!! Nashville going down like a Trailer Trash Whore tonight!!!!!
Not sure how I feel about superstar players demanding coaching changes, but I definitely am not a fan of Bylsma and he had similar issues with Sydney Crosby in Pittsburgh...

With his evaluation of the season complete, Sabres General Manager Tim Murray is presenting his findings to owner Terry Pegula. They could contain a bombshell.
Jack Eichel reportedly has no desire to sign a contract extension this summer if Dan Bylsma remains the coach, Paul Hamilton of WGR-AM 550 reported Wednesday. Differences of opinion between Eichel and Bylsma have been mentioned throughout the season.
If it indeed comes to an either/or scenario, Bylsma is the overwhelming underdog. Murray has made it clear Eichel is his guy.
“He showed some nights that he’s an absolute top, top player in this league, and that’s exciting going forward,” Murray said last week while affirming his desire to lock up the center. “I assume that July 1 we’ll get a call from his agent and start that. If I don’t by July 1, I’ll call him on July 2 and start that.”
Bylsma has three years left on his contract, but Murray has offered several condemning statements about the coach. The biggest was that the coaching staff did not talk to and get to know the players well enough.
Blue Jackets fight back but I think they're done.
Blackhawks looked like shit again last night and deserve to be out of the playoffs. The Chicago sports universe is fucked. The Blackhawks get swept, the Bulls are up 2-0 vs. Boston? The Fucking Cubs won the world Series? And I am stuck as a lifetime White Sox fan (and they ain't going anywhere soon).................
