Between the Ryan O'Reilly debacle and 17 losses in 27 games with a relatively healthy roster, there's more than enough justification to make a change.
Also, only one playoff appearance in five years for Sherman/Sacco. The team was in a rebuilding stage so you can cut them a bit of slack but the Varly trade basically signaled the end of the rebuild. I can't remember but Sherman might have even said as much after he made the trade. If (when) we miss the playoffs this season, it'll be two straight years of missing the playoffs after the team was supposed to take the next step. I like Sherman but that's unacceptable.
