That's just too much of a turn around. Part of being a team is growing together as a group. When you're adding like 3-4 new players come the deadline, that'll likely hurt how the team responds.

Again, i'm assuming that some of Brule, Hailey, Pyatt, Rupp, Halpern, and Asham will not cut it for the entirety of the season, while at least one of Bourque, Yogan, Miller, and Fast will shine in the AHL.
That's a pretty lofty assumption. Bourque can't stay healthy, Fast will be in Sweden for another year, and Miller could possibly go back to Plymouth. Really only leaves Yogan who has had one healthy year of hockey since he's been drafted.

Besides, just a player from inside the organization can be just as detrimental to chemistry as a free agent can be.
