I'm not sure what some of you guys want. They just did exit interviews a couple of days ago. The playoffs haven't even gotten to the second round yet. The staff probably haven't finished dissecting this debacle. I'm sure Shero has had or very soon will be having a meeting with Lemieux, etc.
Neither Shero nor Bylsma was going to say anything impactful in that interview. And I for one am quite glad they didn't. They said what they needed to say: they took their fair share of responsibility, and said they would have a summer of review, thought, and action. Just because they didn't come out and say, "Martin sucked, Fleury sucked, etc." Doesn't mean they don't think that they did. If Shero decides later on in the summer to seek a trade for Martin, for example or for anyone else, why on earth would he do anything to harm his ability to negotiate?
I'm sorry fans, but as a rule, what they're really thinking is just not for our consumption. Someone earlier in the thread said it - we'll know what he thinks of this team by what he does this summer... actually, we'll just have a "better idea"; he may try to make changes to the team that he just can't.
