It takes a lot for me to wig out and I'm not really there yet.
The Pens will start winning again, they will have their streaks, etc.
We will forget about this meltdown in a week or two.
The thing is, these problems we are seeing will be masked, but they will remain just below the surface and will undoubtedly spring up again at the worst time.
I know several things to be true:
DB is going no where
Shero is a good GM
DB needs to evolve as a coach and his stubbornness is his own undoing
This team will flame out in the playoffs if Shero keeps the status quo
I won't be fooled by winning streaks that these problems are fixed
The roster needs tweaked and that is on Shero. DB needs to look in the mirror and accept some blame. I never see him take accountability for losses and problems with the team publically. So I guess he can't ask his vets to be accountable when he isn't either. He needs to make a number of changes to become a legit top tier coach.
I think he can, but I'm not confident he will.
There are a number of issues I have, but I'm just going to wait and see if these two can work things out.
