"It's basically, 'Take a few weeks to get over the first-round loss,' " Shero said Tuesday. "And that hasn't happened yet."
"We have a good team," Shero said. "We have had a good team. ... That's good, but certainly we need that to translate into playoff success."
Shero said that while the makeup of the coaching staff won't change, adjusting duties and responsibilities hasn't been discussed yet. That could come up next week, in conjunction with the talks to assess player performance and potential.
Shero confirmed he has decided "in my mind" about some free agents-to-be he will not try to re-sign, but declined to identify them.
GM Shero is not over it... but decisions looming.
