You're crazy if you think there will be big changes. Cameron is sticking around, and we'll have probably two different roster players next year. Keep in mind we were a playoff team until Turris got hurt. He's very important to this team.
Even though we were in a playoff spot (hell, we were a point back of Detroit for 2nd in the Atlantic with a game in hand) we were playing very poorly from a possession point of view. The analytics nerds were correct in saying that our team PDO (SV% plus SH%) were not sustainable. Giving up that many shots on goal would eventually lead to problems when our shooting percentage and goalies' save percentages regressed to the mean.
If Turris hadn't gotten injured, even MacArthur stayed healthy, we would have made the playoffs, sure. Very possibly even gotten home ice advantage in the first round. But we would have trouble getting past the first round.
This team has already moved Michalek, Greening and Cowen from the roster. Good chance that Wiercioch will not be qualified, either. One (if not both) of Hoffman and Smith will likely be playing on a different team. This team will be very different from the one that had that miracle run last year.
Cameron only got a 1 year extension and Murray hasn't decided yet if he'll be back. I'm not entirely convinced that returning is *his* choice.
According to this site (who knew this info was available? I didn't) http://www.otherleague.com/contracts/nhl-head-coach-contracts-salaries/ Cameron has 2 years left.
It goes team, head coach, years left, salary (when available), former HC
