I think the fans will take to him well and give him the time he needs in order to get this franchise on the right track. But, the results of last year will not fly with Penguin fans nor should it, but putting a solid hockey team on the ice will.

Unlike the Pirates, there is light at the end of the tunnel with this franchise, a very bright light in my opinion. The near future will be something to watch and I think most knowledgable hockey fans can see that and will give Shero the time to map out this franchise and get things rolling in the right direction. Personally, I'm not expecting a playoff run next season. I am expecting to witness a young and solid product with high expectations in the years to come.
