Kunitz-Crosby-Cheechoo
Caputi-Malkin-Sykora
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Talbot-Zigomanis-Adams

Gonchar-Eaton
Letang-Orpik
Gogs-Tollefsen

Fleury
Curry

Looks alright to me.
That. Well, just about that. Bolded players I hope will be different, but Cheechoo might indeed prove a great gamble.
I'd like to retain Scuds rather than Eaton, who - if we can deal him - I would like to replace with a more physical guy who can play second pairing defense. Still high on Witt for that position, and I think he and Letang could develop into something pretty nasty together. Hopefully Eaton keeps his present form going and creates a market for himself.
