holes that got us eliminated:

-Injuries (everyone): fixed/fixing
-Mistakes on D (everyone): Carle gone, Mez back
-Bad defense (defense): Carle gone, Mez back, Schenn in, Gervais in
-Bad backchecking (forwards): JvR gone, Jagr gone, Giroux healthy, Fedotenko in, another option at 2C over Briere (God I hope)
-Goaltending (Bryz): Bryz healthy, settled in, knowing what to expect from Philly fans/media

It just needed to work itself out really. I'd call it a sufficient patch-job.
