The system we have now is a lot different then what we were doing 2 months ago. That's what makes him a good coach, he doesn't force a system on talent that can't do it.
Truth is if we didn't have to blow up the team a few years ago we would have had a couple of deep runs in the playoffs. Think of Weber, Suter and Timmo on the backend. Think of Wilson, Hornqvist and Hartnell on a line.
Poile and Trotz have done an exceptional job considering they were thrown under the bus by a previous owner.
It's also possible Radulov stays if he thinks he's going to be competing for the Cup every year. Not to mention free agent attractions. Also we might have a goalie tandem up Vokoun and Rinne, though it's more likely we would've traded one of them (Vokoun) to save money.
