Perhaps it's time to meddle, like 2008 (the Hossa trade) and 2009 (the Therrien firing).
Go read Andrew Conte's book. There's a part in there about how Pens ownership and brass had a meeting in early January 2009 about what had been a month long full-fledged tail spin.
Burkle asked Shero point blank what his plan was to right the ship: Trades, coaching change, etc? Shero had no plans in place. He was, as always, looking for a trade, and he didn't have any preliminary plans with respect to a prospective coaching change.
