Sure they suck now, they could be better next game and from then on, or in a week, or a month, or just in time to miss the playoffs by a point, or next year. Montréal isn't projected to suck next year like say, the Islanders, so why blow them up?
Well on the plus side, this can essentially happen of its own accord if Gainey is dissatisfied, due to all the expiring contracts this summer. He only need retain those players who deliver. Finding able bodied replacements in the silly season... that's the challenge.

"You can't have two superstars on the same team for X amount of money!!! It just doesn't work, you gotta SHAKE THINGS UP. SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE OH YEAH!!!" -tsn
"Oh all of these players have no drive, no effort, no heart. The roster is a mess, it needs to be cleaned up, all of these guys were never all that good anyway.
