Also, I think Bergeron resigning means the Bruins are even more worried about Savard.
Players that I'd want: Joe Thornton(legit elite 1C), Alex Semin(dynamic offensive talent/proven).
Players that fit our mold: Brooks Laich, David Backes, Scottie Upshall
All in all. I don't see any of them coming here because their teams will in all likelihood re-sign them. JT was just named captain, barring some horrific collapse by the Sharks I'd say they re-up him. Semin could be a possibility but I don't think DT would necessarily go for him.
Laich, Backes, and Upshall are all highly coveted players by their respective teams. Unless there are severe cap constraints they will all be re-signed.
TL;DR: We're probably not going to get anyone significant.
