I think the time for a "shake up" is in the offseason after we see how the players and coaching staff shape up over the course of the season - if they leave a lot to be desired then at the end of the season you have the offseason in front of you and can remake the roster or staff as you please.

Right now I don't think the team is playing badly enough that a desperation move like firing the coach midseason (I don't exactly want to see our AHL head coach replacing AV even on an interim basis).

As for a shakeup on the roster, what does that entail? Trading a player that was thought to be part of the core group? I don't see that working out too well over the short term but by all means, if Mike Gillis can improve the team without opening up a huge hole mid-season then he should go for it.

If the team falls flat in the first round again I would look to change the coaching staff and maybe cut a player or two (beyond the outgoing UFAs) loose.
