You gotta remember; the Penguins are coached by the same guy who coached the second-most talented team in the 2014 Winter Olympics off the medals podium altogether, and had the players openly questioning his gameplan in the aftermath.
The trouble with being a fan is when you know that somebody is holding your team back and preventing them from being all they can be, like Dan Bylsma is with the Penguins. On one hand, if they win, then it just gives everybody a false sense of hope, and the problem remains. On the other hand, people will label you a dick if you'd rather the team blow the short term out its ass in order to finally get the problem removed and the team better positioned (and coached) for the long term.
