We've sucked for five straight years. I don't think there's any particular reason to start rushing now to fill all the holes by opening day.
People forget that even playoff teams, particularly those on the bubble, still usually have at least one large hole on their roster. The 05/06 Oilers notably had a serious goaltending issue until we acquired Roloson. So expecting MacTavish to fix every single weakness before training camp is akin to asking him to build a contending team... it's just not realistic.
