“This was my fault, too.”
I can understand why Shero was moved to axe Hynes, who had been the longest-tenured coach among the nine New York-area pro sports teams. Consecutive no-show performances against the Rangers at home and in Buffalo dropped New Jersey to 9-13-4. Their 22 points rank next to last in the NHL.
“When you’ve got 23 players that aren’t playing at the level nearly that I (expected),” Shero said. “I think they’re better than this.”
Not once did Shero say, “Maybe some of these guys — the guys I drafted, signed or traded for — aren’t as good as I thought they were.”
When is it his turn to point the finger at himself?
