Remind me in five seasons when Lundqvist is on the decline how blowing up the foundation of a team that made the ECF and missed out on the President's Trophy by a point the year prior was a prudent course of action.
Exactly how long do we let them live off of last year before we do what needs to be done? Gaborik and Richards aren't cutting it as the centerpieces of the offense and they're useless when they're not scoring. The team has gone from the hardest working in the NHL to one of the softest, so you have to wonder if the coach has lost them. If some of these guys need to go they shouldn't be kept around because Lundqvist will be 35 someday.
