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.
If this organization really wants to make a splash, Brad Richards is also out there.
I just hope we sign someone significant. With all the money available, it will be inexcusable IMO to just make more depth signings instead of bringing in impact players.
