Dan Rooney never told Whisenhunt or Cowher how to run the offense. Mario and Ron aren't going to tell Bylsma how to coach.
However, if Mario and Ron find themselves having to give Shero orders to make deals or orders regarding other aspects of hockey operations, then they need to consider parting ways with him and finding another GM not named Brian Burke.
Shero is naturally cautious, part of the thing that happens when you make your bones as a David Poile protege and during 'building years' for Nashville and Ottawa before that.
