A season banner is something, right.

If DB is retained, then confidence will be lost in Shero. He will no longer be beyond reproach and will face greater scrutiny through next season.


Face scrutiny from who?


I should have said confidence would be reduced in Shero. By who? By fans and the media when the Pens face adversity. This is clearly a critical decision about a topic that's been heavily debated by the public. If we see the same results at the end of next season, Shero will bear the brunt of that blame. The same way some people now question the trades they previously lauded.

He's basically had a free ride up until now.

I thought I'd be mad about this when he announced it, but I simply don't care.

Im really disappointed. I knew it was coming after the press went all in for him to stay. I just am not seeing the same things they are seeing.

Seems like the only people who hate this are Penguins fans... just about everyone else (Dreger, et al) thinks it's a smart move.

Perhaps Pens fans are spoiled...

Perhaps Pens fans are aware of what has happened with both the Penguins and the Capitals and Sharks over the past decade.

Perhaps Pens fans are tired of seeing their team get beat in embarrassing fashion in the playoffs while coaching and GM says "it's all good."

Indifference is fine. Not everyone is indifferent to their team.

The sort of media that follows the NHL is almost always going to agree with keeping a coach. Just as they'll usually wait until the last moment to criticize one.

I'm sorry but as a fan if you think the results this team has gotten over the last 4 years with the rosters they have had is acceptable(I'll give the Tampa Bay year a pass)... then I don't know what to say. Especially the last two years with how they went out. I just can't see accepting that as status quo.

So I guess this thread will have to go into hibernation until our embarassing playoff exit next year.
