    Let's put up a productive thread among the misery that is Amacs 6th season in Philly and identify what are the needs that need to be addressed.

    No 1 goalie (hopefully Hart)
    2C (hopefully NP)
    3C (when NP is 2C)
    Provy to be 1D
    Sanheim to be 3D or better
    4/5D aka Myers (who hopefully will be more than that)
    Whole new coaching staff, getting rid of Hakstol was a start but Gordon is not much better.

    The center depth is terrible. Can't win games consistently with the dreadful production of Patrick and Weal.

    This.

    Plus:

    1- change the mentality towards giving responsibility to as many prospects as possible as early as possible (both AHL and NHL level). This slow cooking with such as deep prospect is doubly stupid. They need to see what that have as early as possible.

    2- quit being a scared franchise instead of an innovative franchise (see Tampa)

    Did something happen to Gudas after the 1st period last night? Because otherwise we have that guy.


    My priority would be making sure that MacDonald is never on the roster ever, ever again.

    Two round things that hang between the legs of most men.
    Hextall/Halstol neutered them. When your PK is horrible you have to play a temid game.

    This team needs a solid veteran dman.
    Sniper
    Head coach that has a system and history of success.

    First and foremost an NHL caliber coach with his system of play. Then evaluate personnel and trade for missing pieces to fit that system (Lavy in his last year had a great system, but did not have matching pieces).

    Top-down.

    A coherent plan. Then to pull the individual parts on board with it. Then fill gaps.
