It's not really blowing up the team though. It's replacing the UFA's with younger players.

Heatley, Koivu, Cullen, Schultz, Backstrom, Setoguchi, Bouchard, Latendresse, Clutterbuck, Powe would still be in the lineup more likely than not.

And a thought occurred to me that, despite ripping on him for his productivity, Cullen was brought in to be a good locker room vet after some issues a couple years back (Nolan?). Clearly there's been issues with Havlat and Zidlicky, and with guys like Koivu and Zanon refusing to talk to the media after losses (especially Koivu, who's supposed to be the captain)...Cullen might actually be doing some good.

Yeo needs to stand up and be a voice to rally around here. A "with us or there's the door" speech might be in order. To assert himself going forward and set the tone for next year and the youth that comes up.
