It's a bit early, but it's always fun to speculate. I think Leino is gone after this season. I wouldn't sacrifice anyone of our high earning dmen just be able to resign him at least. Versteeg might be dealt I suppose if his playoffs turns out to be a disappointment, I still have hopes for him though.
A UFA forward I'd like us to look at is Patrick Eaves. He's been good for the Red Wings on their 3rd/4th line and has done some really solid PK work. He also has a decent offensive upside even if he's not turned out to be the player his rookie season promised.
If we look outside the organization for a replacement for O'Donnell maybe Mark Stuart is an option? He hasn't had the greatest season this year so his salary demands may not be the highest so we can have a chance on him. Even though he has struggled this year as a physical bottom pairing dman you can do a lot worse.
I always suck at guesstimating what the NHL GM's will fork out on the UFA's though. They always outbid me somehow...
