This team is nowhere close to being a SC contender with just some tweaking, even if Jesus floated down from heaven to coach the team.
And it wouldn't happen the first year, too much turnover. Adapt system to players, etc. I agree with your general principle as turnarounds such as suggested are very rare. The largest odds for the Sharks next year are a very marginal bubble team, barring a miracle or catastrophe. The team assuredly lost ground this year vs a number of opponents.
