While many of the big names are already gone, there are still a few good players who could go to July 1. Jokinen, Upshall, Leino, Laich, Fleichmann are all young forwards who bring a lot to the table. Sign one or two of those guys and/or trade for Penner and the team could be incredibly deep with many scoring options.

Something like:

Penner-Spezza-Alfredsson
Michalek-Regin-Fleischman/Upshall
Foligno-Fisher-Butler
Silfverberg-Kelly-Neil

extra: Shannon

Phillips-Gonchar
Kuba-Karlsson
Cowen-Carkner

extra: Campoli (likely traded for a forward prospect), Rundblad

That's a team that looks like the 05-06 Sabres. Each line can hurt you and the defense is mobile and great in all three zones.

If the team can't add a big name, two middle tier players like these guys would make just as significant an impact in this system with the defense being so damn good at moving the puck. IMO.
