My guesses:

Erat - Probably gone.
Setzinger - Gone.
Suter - Probably gone.
Niskala - Re-signed
Bochenski - Gone
Weber - Signed on a short term deal
Ellison - Re-signed for depth
Grumet-Morris - Re-signed for depth
Klein - Either traded on draft day or signed to replace either Suter or
Koistinen - Probably back to Europe - Not enough playing time here
Peverley - Re-signed - Depth
Vigilante - Gone

Unrestricted Free Agents:

Gelinas - Probably gone - Will probably retire
Hlavac - Probably gone - Might look at bringing him back if cheap
Hordichuk - Probably gone - waste of space on the ice
Ellis - Probably gone. Someone might take a chance based on the playoff performance and we have Mason (untradeable) and Rinne on one way deals
Langfeld - Probably gone
Henry - Re-signed - depth
Willis - Gone
Yonkman - Re-signed - depth

Probable roster (imo) (before FA, draft):

Radulov - Arnott - Dumont
Fiddler - Legwand - Hornqvist
Pihlstrom - Bonk - Tootoo
Smithson - Nichol - Ortmeyer

Weber - Zanon
Hamhuis - de Vries
Zidlicky - Klein

I think you should change your name to " Stranger- The pessimistic thread killer" lol No really We are not gonna let Erat, Suter and Ellis walk. New ownership isnt that stupid.
