But let's be real with ourselves for a moment. The signs were there. You knew Parise was torn. It was home or the only team he's played with, and he chose home. Suter followed him.
Shero held a conference media call soon after the signings were announced. The cliffsnotes are the Penguins were never on Parise's or Suter's radar. Also, Shero seems content holding steady with the meat left out on the market. Sounds like he's willing to listen to trade offers, and if the right one comes along (without overpaying) he's pulling the trigger.
The summer is long. #SheroWatch is on.
