Homer is either going to sign 1 or two older vet players to cheap contracts, or hopes a prospect comes in and wins a spot. Its a tricky situation, and we wont be able to keep the same team as this season.
I think Lappy will most likely stay on LTIR for the remainder of his contract, seeing as there is only a year left (not sure if there is any rules against this though, so someone with better knowledge, please explain).

I would also not be surprised to see Shelley waived in order to make room for Leino.
Also, could anyone see Matt Carle traded? I hope he's not, as he is still fairly young, and could be integral to our blueline as Timonen and Pronger get longer in the tooth.
