Championship teams have a goalie in net who can make the stops and a team who plays as a group in the coaches system. This team is not doing that and they lack a goalie. Championship teams also do not have guys like Bartulis as their #6 and a player like Read who has little/no professional experience.
And this is by no means a blow up, some tweaks in the right areas.
Lose Carter, Carle, Hartnell, Leino(UFA), and bring in guys who have won a Stanley Cup in Larose, Cole, Bryzgalov, and a high end prospect who is under contract for a couple more years.
And IMO this team needs a little overhaul, too much complacency. There has been a belief that they are so good that they just need to "flip the siwtch" and they can win on a whim. It does not work in the NHL, time to get guys who want to come and play on a nightly basis. The window is small, make whatever changes helps the coach get the players he needs to do his job, which is coach, not babysit.
