you guys made simple and plain the mistake many lower end teams had made before
Edmonton as example.
A goalie not something worthless or nescessary.
You need at least a good goalie to play constant at top level.
The arguments were the same as Edmonton or Islanders or Toronto had for years.
There are plenty of goelies available at UFA, it's enough to offer 5th rounder for top goalies etc...

Just collecting offensive players is doing absolutely nothing.
You guys just learn the hard way that a hockey rink has 2 ends with a goal.
And of course that is effecting your offensive players.
I always read they are not producing, they are not stepping up.
But it is really difficult to do something when your defense is completely overrun on a daily base.
Ask the Oilers......... they thought they have top end offensive players and simply have to score more than they get.
Problem is that other teams have Doughtys, Webers, Charas who are able to completely shut down these guys.

Your GM made a huge mistake when throwing big bucks at Bryzgalov who is mediocre at best.
If he would have gone after Bernier you still would have some of your former great guys.
