He got them 60 minutes from the ECF.

60 minutes. You can say what you want about not winning the game, the Pens looking better or whatever, but when it came down to it, he wasn't that far off.

The team is still young, there's a ton of good players on the roster and coming up who are getting better. Does the composition need to be altered a bit? Yeah, probably. but, he's not that far away from being able to taste that success.

One team can win the Cup each year, so I'm not sure how you are doing anything other than setting yourself up for being disappointed by feeling that every year he has to win the cup to not be a failure. If we're getting into another year or two down the road and progress is not being made, then the failure label can be applied. However, at this point, McPhee, like it or not, is a rousing success.

Does he go without question or bad move? No. He has made mistakes. But the team right now is a team that can compete for the Cup at least for the next 2-3 years without significant changes. Probably longer.
