I can argue with a few names on that list. And, again, it depends on what type of prism you're looking through when you mention these players being good at anything. Good for a 1st/2nd round loss team? Sure. Good for a championship team? Nah.

This team needs a ton of work in the offseason. I don't envy Vigneault's job - he needs to coax more offense out of a team thats not very offensively gifted all while not abandoning the things this team actually did well. Thats a tough balancing act - you seem to be convinced that a net-net gain is a foregone conclusion. Im highly skeptical.

But I'll see how things shake out this offseason and what the roster looks like - thats more important than any coach, and thats a position that will never change for me.
