In 2010, it was Brian Burke leading the way in assembling Team USA for the Olympics in Vancouver and then-Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson behind the bench. This time, the tandem at the top for Sochi, Russia, in 2014 will be Nashville President and GM David Poile as general manager of Team USA, and the Penguins' Dan Bylsma as coach. Burke, who is a consultant with the Anaheim Ducks, will serve as director of player personnel. The announcements were made official Saturday at a news conference in New York.

SOCHI, Russia - The mystique that surrounded hockey players from the old Soviet Union and Russia vanished when they began to populate NHL locker rooms and win many of the league's most important trophies. The team ethic prevails whether the guy sitting next to you is from Moscow or Moose Jaw. But if the mystery is gone, the contrast in their games remains strong and should be evident when Team USA and Russia face off Saturday before an expected raucous crowd at the Bolshoy Ice Dome.

For anyone who has strapped on skates, playing in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals is the embodiment of a dream -- one the Penguins and Red Wings will live out Friday in Detroit. Pittsburgh Coach Dan Bylsma played in a Game 7 with the Mighty Ducks in 2003. He wants his players to know one thing: they must seize every moment or risk skating off with the regret he has carried all these years.

Mighty Duck forward Dan Bylsma has been nominated for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy by the Anaheim chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Assn. The award goes to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Adam Graves of the New York Rangers won the award last season. Bylsma's skills as a penalty killer and his leadership have been invaluable to the Ducks.

Coach Larry Robinson is known to tinker with the Kings' lines from time to time, but he had second thoughts about some changes he made only hours before their 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday. "It's kind of tough to throw [players] together who haven't been together in a while. . . . The chemistry wasn't there," said Robinson, who several times had Dan Bylsma teamed with veterans Eddie Olczyk and Ray Ferraro instead of his normal linemates, Ian Laperriere and Matt Johnson.

In his Nov. 15 letter, Richard Adams was right on when he wrote of "how blessed we are in Southern California to have announcers such as Vin Scully and Chick Hearn." It would be a crime, however, to omit Bob Miller from this list. His outstanding coverage of Kings hockey has exhibited the same high level of character, excitement and consistency.

Dan Bylsma continues to grind it out, doing unsung chores for the Ducks. Bylsma, a right wing, was moved to center on the team's fourth line Wednesday, a position he has not tried since 1997-98, when he was with the Kings. He was forced into the position because Marc Chouinard has an injured right knee. "There is really not much difference, except I'll have to play a lot more down low on defense," Bylsma said. "That doesn't bother me. I just like playing."

Dan Bylsma, a hard-working forward who wasn't even considered a lock to make the team at the beginning of the season, is the only King who has played in all 57 games. Bylsma has only two goals and five points, but he has stayed in the lineup with aggressive play and became the only remaining King to play in every game when forwards Dimitri Khristich and Ray Ferraro were sidelined because of injuries last week.

Dan Bylsma and Mike Babcock were on the same side in the 2003 Stanley Cup finals, Bylsma a diligent penalty killer for the then Mighty Ducks and Babcock a rookie NHL coach who unexpectedly led a team that put defense first (and second and third) to a Game 7 against the New Jersey Devils. Bylsma, now the Pittsburgh Penguins' coach, has never forgotten being engulfed by the sickening sensation that his team was going to see the Devils hoist the Cup in sweaty glee. "I can remember vividly.

If there is a lesson to be learned about Dan Bylsma it's that the Pittsburgh Penguins' coach sees every experience as a lesson, whether on-the-fly strategic decisions that led his team to the Stanley Cup finals or a profound personal tragedy that shook him to his core. Appointed coach of a burned-out and foundering team Feb. 16 after only a few months' minor-league coaching experience, Bylsma allowed the Penguins to have fun again and led them on an 18-3-4 surge that carried them to the No.

When former Duck Dan Bylsma was named the Penguins' interim coach Sunday -- succeeding the fired Michel Therrien -- it jogged a few memories around the halls of the team's Anaheim headquarters. During the Ducks' playoff run to the Stanley Cup finals in 2003, Bylsma had a tradition after victories. He was often a healthy scratch but would come rushing into the dressing room in his suit after the game. "He would yell out, 'Duckies, duckies, duckies, quack, quack, quack'!"

General Manager Bryan Murray continues to shuffle the Mighty Duck roster and Monday, team officials got around to announcing that forward Dan Bylsma had been put on waivers. Bylsma was put on waivers late last week, although team officials claimed that there had been no roster moves before Sunday's game. Bylsma was listed as a healthy scratch. If he clears waivers Wednesday, he will be sent to Cincinnati, the Ducks' minor league affiliate.

Mighty Duck forward Dan Bylsma has been cleared to play after completing his rehabilitation from off-season surgery on his left knee. Bylsma, who underwent surgery on his knee in June, went through a full practice on Wednesday. And there was more good news from the training room as defensemen Keith Carney and Sandis Ozolinsh practiced for the first time in more than a week. But for Bylsma, it was a day he had long awaited. "I'm tired of viewing games, it's time to play in one," he said.

The Ducks juggled their lineup slightly, benching forward Dan Bylsma in favor of Patrick Kjellberg. Kjellberg played 65 games for the Ducks last season, but was a healthy scratch the first two games. Bylsma is one of the team's top penalty killers. "The other night in Dallas, I thought we didn't have enough forwards going," Coach Mike Babcock said. "I couldn't make the changes I wanted to during the game. Patrick had a good camp and is going to get an opportunity.

It is midnight in Grand Haven, Mich. Floodlights and shouts fill the air as the Bylsma boys skate wildly around the only ice rink in the city. Nobody can shoo them home, because they are home. The rink is in their backyard. The four boys helped flatten the snow, and spray the water, and make giant snowballs for the boards, and now they are playing. Well, three of them play. The other one irritates. Three of them shoot with abandon.

Before the New Jersey Devils kept the Ducks out of their net, they welcomed them into their dressing room. In bold letters. Taped to a white grease board. The quote of the day. The catch of the day. "...Playing New Jersey would be great, too, because I'd really like to shake Scott Stevens' hand when he's congratulating me on winning the Stanley Cup." The words were spoken by Duck reserve Dan Bylsma on a late-night radio show last week.
