It's not about changing personnel, it's changing the culture. I feel those two are the biggest part of that problem.

Tough to move Roy unless you're getting a comparable center back, but he needs to go.
I agree. People complain endlessly about the Rochester core, and then make dream lineups with most of them still in it. Pominville is the captain. Vanek is the best of the group. Who does that leave to trade?

The idea that you need a center who can score 80 points to win the cup isn't true. Take a look at the production of the Bruins centers during the regular season last year.

Vanek-Adam-Pominville
Ennis-xxxx-Stafford
Leino-xxxx-Kassian
Foligno-McCormick-Gerbe
Tropp

That is the core of a contending team in the future. Trade Roy to get a center in a different mold. Make another minor trade or sign someone like Stoll to get another bottom six center.
