CBC starting to make sense - time to change up that top-6. There's no point to keeping all these guys when you're going to have to pay them 6M+ a year.

-we need a PF in the top-6
-we need to grab support guys like Dupuis, etc
-we need to grab DEFENSEMEN

These are things I've been clamoring for a while here - getting criticized harshly for it as well.

You don't need 6 superstars comprising your top-6. You need 3-4 and then good supports.

That bottom-6 isn't going to fix itself through development of young players- there are a plethora of UFA vets available that can play an NHL game.

And for the love of god - please trade Eberle for one of Carlson/Mcdonagh - the difference it will make to this team when Nick Schultz/Whitney/J.Schultz aren't getting top-4 minutes is exponential.
