Totally agree here. Take out Boyle and Murray and bring back Irwin and our D has already been re-built with youth and skill, added a veteran or two. Add we have youth in the goal. Up front, our main issue is we probably have one of the worst bottom six mix's in hockey meaning; teams simply focus their grind on Thornton, Marleau, Couture, Havlat and Pavelski knowing we have little to nothing to follow, thus the other issue of why they are being shut down in scoring as we see. So youth needed up front but going to need youth with hockey skills. Thornton and Marleau are only 33, putting pieces around them in the forwards would keep us in contention. ... eg. Moving Clowe, Handzus, Murray, Burish and Galiardi immidiately to soon and thus revamping the 3rd and 4th lines almost completely, albeit holding on to the only pieces of value there in Sheppard, Wingels and Desjardins and mix them in with 3 competent newcomers. To me, this is almost a must, nevermind trading your top line players, this should be first and formost.[/B]
