Bull. He fired a head coach mid-season that took the team the finals the year before. He traded one of his prized assets (Ryan Whitney) to address weakness on wings. He acquired key veterans at cheap prices, such as Hal Gil, Dupuis, Fedetenko, Cooke, Gueirn, etc. The year before, he gave up left-over assets for Hossa, a move that propelled them to Finals. He correctly identified the pieces to keep and the pieces to trade off, and the pieces to add in Free Agency.

In no way was his cup win handed to him.

And now, he does it again. Trades from area of strength to get a scoring winger... a move we've been longing for and needing for years now.

Shero gets it done, plain and simple.
