Shero has had one the the best, if not the best, core in the league since he got here so the "how many GMs have a better track record over that period" argument isn't as strong as it sounds.
That was just addressed a few posts up. Malkin and Sid were gone for one of our 1st round exits, and Sid was still calibrating after a long, long layoff when we played Philly, IMO.

Even if you believe Sid was 100% that series, that still leaves only one 1st round exit since '08 with both Sid and Geno in the line-up. How people believe that's an unacceptable track record worthy of potential dismissal after all the good Shero's done is beyond me.
