If any roster change/upgrade is a shakeup, then like every other team in the league, they can use one. Otherwise, no.

If AV does not go far in the playoffs this year, he is gone.
Booth could well be gone one way or another in favor of an upgrade.
For better or worse, the team will probably look much different at the first of next year. I think the degree it doesn't has to do directly with the successes or lack there of of the present core. AV has a good record this year, and has a good track record. He should not be gone unless he yet again fails to make it far into the playoffs with this group. Everything else is secondary to me at this point this whole regular season could be an exercise in team preparation and working out the kinks for the playoffs for all I care.
Losing both Higgins and Raymond would be pretty dumb, IMO.
