I think it's a mistake to pin this on Sherman, and hope it's more of a sign that he's trying to get a pulse of the team, and Sacco is the one that will be replaced.

I really wouldn't be shocked to see Roy take GM/HC jobs though, even keeping Sherman as assistant GM. It almost seems like the whole team was waiting to spend extra money in every area until around this point of the re-build, and Roy also wanted to wait a bit longer for his sons to graduate, and re-assess things.

Maybe this was their plan all along.
Much as I have maligned Sherman, if indeed Lacroix merely used him as a placeholder for his son or Roy, then that's even more upsetting to me than the prospect of Joe Sacco continuing as coach next season.
