It's easy to throw out imaginary numbers like "3-4 players in each of the top and bottom 6". Actually doing it and doing it WELL is another thing.

Do we even have the assets or cap space to make the trades and signings you're suggesting? I don't see it. And even then....still doesn't answer the biggest issue on the team. How do you turn around Ovechkin? This team isn't winning a Cup with him playing like this.
From this year's top-6: Ribeiro, Wolski, Brouwer/Ward

From this year's bottom-6: Crabb, Hendricks, Ward/Brouwer, Fehr, Perreault

Both Johansson and Laich should be made available for a package for an upgrade, but no idea whether to call them top-6 or bottom-6.

Make some moves, and yes, we have the cap space and assets to do what I'm suggesting.

And nobody really knows how to turn around Ovechkin. I think changing the complexion of the team around him is the best strategy. Get more speed, skill, and toughness.
