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.
Yes, I guess I should have specified and said that I didn't think there was anyone we'd have a shot at or legitimately be going after.
