I doubt it, but I think this upcoming homestand is huge, if they play as poorly as they have on this roadtrip, I think there could be some serious discussion about replacing him because then, the biggest excuse of all (the horrible travel) is gone. And you can talk all you want about the two major injuries, but every team has to deal with them, Pens lost Crosby and Malkin last year for an extended period of time and didn't miss a beat.

So I think this upcoming homestand will be huge, one way or another.
Agree. This homestand will be important and every team does have to deal with injuries sooner or later. However, using a team like the Penguins to illustrate your point isn't such a hot idea because they are loaded talentwise and so they can and will continue to win despite missing 2 of the 4 or 5 top players in the world.
