Though I think coaching is an issue...I don't think the Pens "future" is a concern. Seriously...for drafting late in most years we have Morrow, Pouliot, Hanowski, Agostino, Maatta, Bluegers, Bennett Harrington, etc. Though most aren't "blue chip", they can help us in the future. Shero needs to create a team that can compete year in and year out and the fill in the holes with these draft picks.
We NEED faith in the players we select. We don't know what we have until we see them play at the NHL level. Any one of them could come here (regardless of their past) and rip the **** outta this league.
Hes a franchise goalie in the sense that he belongs to our franchise. He hasnt done anything to step up as a FRANCHISE goalie.
