Brent Johnson was great 2 seasons ago so there was no need to bring in a new goalie prior to last season. I don't think bringing in a new backup is necessary when the backup doesn't play in the playoffs anyway.

3 years of poor play? Do you have the memory of a gold fish?? Last season Fleury was every bit as valuable to the team as Malkin. If not for Fleury the Pens would be a borderline playoff team regardless of Geno's performance. Fleury was also the main reason the Pens made the playoffs in 2011 when Sid and Geno were out.

Yes, Shero hired DB and then gave him an extension, and rightfully so. Bylsma had achieved the 2 ultimate awards a coach can achieve, won a championship and won coach of the year. Bylsma is one of Shero's best moves as a GM.
