As an outsider that saw his team (Coyotes) turn around after a decade of similar mismanagement:

1.) Fire everyone remotely associated with the losing culture, no matter how small the position, or how strong the ties to the glory days.

2.) Replace them with respected, established personnel. Spend the most $$$ here.

3.) Give the new management and coaching total control of the team. If a player is deemed unfit, they are traded/cut, no questions asked. If that means every piece of the 'core' has to go, so be it (I doubt it).

Trying to do any of this piecemeal or half-hearted will only make the situation worse. You can't just fire a coach. You can't just make a token trade. You can't just swap the GM out. It has to be everything all at once.

As fans, you need to voice your displeasure with your wallets and your attention.
