It's a catch-22.

On the one hand, you can say (and, I think I'd agree) that if this team finds a legitimate second line to ease the scoring burden on Hags-Richards-Gaborik then it'll be better.

On the other hand (and I find it compelling, but perhaps not convincing) that the team has an identity, a very gritty identity ("jam") and as you bring in more skill, that jam goes away so we get away from what's gotten here.

My conclusion? Enjoy the ride, don't worry about next year. (Though, gun to head, I'd rather add skill...if Gaborik is blocking shots, I think Torts has a system in place that players will buy into and follow).
