Sid and Geno I agree with but Letang..we could have got 2 solid players for that much cabbage. It's time we bring up our youth and get them going. If Blysma doesn't change his style of coaching which I highly doubt he will, we are in for another frustrating season. Defense and Speed Shero has not addressed. Let's hope he does come July 5th but with limited funds, I look for the Pens to go nowhere. BTW.."Didn't Season Tickets go up in pricing? For what reason?
During the Bylsma extension press conference Shero basically all but said that they are content with a successful regular season team, who will obviously gain a playoff birth. I'm not sure if he meant to give that notion or not. It did however come off as a consultation in brand marketing and profitability.
In other words, Dan Bylsma and Marc Andre Fleury are regular season juggernauts. Crosby and Malkin will fill the arena. People will still buy into it regardless if we have astronomical failures in the playoffs. Money will be made. All is well. If we win a cup in the process, cool.
