These guys have been mostly worthless all year. I don't see how rearranging them is going create the winning combination. Heatley, Bouchard, Cullen and Setoguchi have had their moments but they haven't been on the score sheet much during this losing skid. Clutterbuck and Brodziak have been complete offensive zone non-factors. No shots. No chances. No possession.

Somebody has got to get moved.
I agree to a certain extent, but making extensive changes into the lineup in the middle of the season will only make things worse IMO. There would just be more guys looking at least as lost in the system as Suter has looked and that wouldn't help us make the playoffs. A trade or two at most may take place, but any more than that would be overkill.

However, if we're still doing this badly close to the trade deadline, then making another trade and focusing on getting the prospects acquainted to the team and the league would be justified.
