Would you trade Dan Boyle to shake up the team in the offseason?

I think its silly to be debating on whether or not a player trade will shake up this franchise. You have to get to the root of the problem first. The players are there to execute on a system.
In my opinion, its the system, not the players that are failing. The Todd Mclellan system is basically the Detroit system. The last time the Red Wings made it past the 2nd round was in 2009. Things have changed a lot in the NHL since then. So either Todd changes the system to that of teams that are excelling in the playoffs, or he goes. It's simple. Doug Wilson's role in that is to build that system out when its established.
So in summary, figure out the system first, then decide on the players that will execute on that, even if it means letting go of fan favorites like Boyle, Pavs, etc.
