As easy as it would be to hit the panic/shake-up button, I wouldn't do it. Shaking it up only works if you have a clear vision in mind for what you want to accomplish with your trade or line shuffle. The problem is essentially the same as it has been throughout DW's tenure. No clear vision of what their depth lines are going to be. They got lucky a couple seasons when they went offensive with their 3rd line. Other years, it has been just throwing some parts together and hoping for the best. The fact that they had commented on the fact that T.J. Galiardi doesn't have a clear role on this team when they just traded for him speaks to that.

Since they don't have that clear vision, it's pointless to try to do something when you're just hoping something works. They won't dump players and sell off. They won't spread the offensive talent as much as they need to really fix the lines. They will continue to sputter until they get lucky and then it might turn around.
