If you take a look at the Crunch record after Yawney took over, the team played as a team and were decent enuff to come from the league basement to make the playoffs. Just fill a couple of holes with vets, and the team should be fine.
Must fill is on ice leadership. Guenin was up with the Ducks a lot last year and that left a leadership void at Captain. Even when he was here he seemed out of place in the leadership role with the Crunch.
Toughness is another issue. The Crunch put up decent total fight numbers, you can probably count the wins from that total on both hands. Both teams in the finals had legit heavies (Nor-Laibre and Neilsen/Tor-Orr and Rosehill) and their toughness was never questioned.
