This team isn't suddenly going to be contending with a few tweaks. Although that Subban trade would be tempting depending on what is being sent. Beyond that just let the kids play and grow. Keep Oleksiak in the AHL, don't rush him, but give him a full season down there for the extra time to help make sure his offensive game develops.

The one change though would be to the minutes for the defense. Split them up closer to even, instead of giving one pairing the bulk of the minutes making them a "#1" pairing. Beyond that change the powerplay units to what's been said a million times before already.

Eriksson-Benn-Jagr
Goligoski-Whitney

Smith-Roy-Ryder
Daley/Dillon-Larsen

This team isn't going to be competing as any wins and points are just gravy, what really is the point of the season is to see how the young players develop over these 48 games to see what you've got.
