You're giving Shero entirely too much credit, IMO. The real reason everything panned out was the growth/play of Crosby and Malkin.

Kunitz and Guerin were decent moves, but they scored 8 goals combined in the playoffs. The Staal pick was a reach, and the extension is a major overpayment, and the Sykora and Satan additions were disasters. The only other thing of note he's done didn't pan out, and that was trading for Hossa. He's basically ridden the talent acquired during the Craig Patrick regime.
