7. Winchester

RFA's likely re-signed:

8. Butler
9. Z. Smith
10. Greening
11. Condra

12. 2011 1st round pick? (Landeskog, Nugent-Hopkins)
Murray seems to think their 1st pick will play next year

13. Murray said during the STH conference call that the club might try to sign a top 6 forward via free agency this summer.

14. Other possibilities (prospects): O'Brien, Silfverberg

I just don't see where Ryan Shannon fits in.

Before you answer that we can send a guy or two on the list above to Binghamton, keep in mind that guys like Butler, Z. Smith, Greening and Condra would have to clear waivers to be sent down to Binghamton next year since their entry-level contracts will have expired.
This. Let the guy walk, he is redundant, has maxed out his potential (I can't freaking believe some people are saying he has not had a chance!!!). We just don't have room for him, he'd be taking up a roster space that would be better served being used by a young guy with potential (Condra, Greening, Smith, Regin) while not being good enough to justify that (like a legitimate top 6 UFA would be).

Michalek - Spezza - Butler
Foligno - Draft pick - Alfredsson
Greening - Regin - Condra
Smith - Winchester - Neil

No room for Shannon.
