Bylsma in particular. He called the extension "important" and in some ways a relief. He traded texts with his brothers assuring them he was "OK" after the loss to the Bruins. Now he can head into the offseason trying to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it.

His first order will be finding a new goaltending coach. Longtime goaltending coach Gille Meloche will move into a scouting role and whoever inherits his position will have to find a way to restore the confidence of Marc-Andre Fleury. The former No. 1 pick imploded in the opening round against the New York Islanders and lost his job to Tomas Vokoun.

Bylsma and Shero insist the 28-year-old Fleury remains a part of the team's future.

"Does he understand situation he's in? I think he does," Bylsma said. "Going forward there is not repair work to do with Marc-Andre Fleury and the coach and our team. He's a good goalie ... he's going to win the majority of the games for us."

With Bylsma at the helm.

"We want to put ourselves into situations to win the Stanley Cup every year," Bylsma said. "We felt we've done that with our team."
