Yes, he was incorrect playing them as the team's performance improved with them all gone. It's not as if he didn't have most of the personnel that he ran with after those moves already. The only guy he got was Torres. Hannan didn't play til much later and wasn't really a guy that was going to be impacted by the style change.

I'm not saying those guys should've been out of the NHL but they should've been out of this team's lineup when they had guys that would've been better if they put them in the right position to succeed which they eventually did. This team just couldn't compliment those guys well enough to get the best out of them for the team. They weren't good fits and they fought that for a long time.
