RYAN Finnerty has shrugged off criticism of his decision to re-sign goalie John DeCaro for Steelers.

Some fans have been critical of the goalie’s style and blame him, partially, for the Sheffield’s inability to land silverware last season.

“I read some of the comments being made and think some are just making Johnny the scapegoat for what happened at the end of the year, Johnny saved our backside for the most part of last year, he wasn’t the reason we ended on a low.

“I have no doubts that he is the right guy for us.”

While Finnerty concedes the fans “haven’t seen the best of DeCaro”, he added: “He will make those who doubt him eat their words by the end of March next season.”
