There absolutely is a systematic problem. McLellan's system has become less and less effective as time has progressed - I think most would believe he'll be replaced in the offseason for this reason. A replacement coach would change how the team would approach free agency and what players would be targeted.

As per individual players, I would vote on getting value for anyone that has a close to expiring contract and won't be sticking around past next season.
