But most of it starts with ridding the roster of inconsistent players who do not add to a teams battle level, or play demotivated with less than 110% effort.

Size, speed, toughness, hunger, tenacity, and commitment to winning are the traits that I want, and not a bunch of Euro-league bound mercs who play passive hockey.
5 - 7? Unless you're talking replacing the entire 4th line and 3rd pairing that's a lot of spots to fill. Personally I think 2 or 3 additions can make this team a legit contender.
