Things to consider:
a) There are 14 regulars signed for next season on a 20-22 team roster.
b) There are 4 RFAs that most think may likely have roster jobs for next season (Greening, Z. Smith, Condra & Z. Smith).
c) There are a few rookies who have a shot at being on the roster next season (Cowen, Da Costa & Rundblad).
d) Murray has said that he is trying to add at least one UFA forward this summer.
e) Ottawa needs a backup goalie, Bingo needs a second goalie & the organization need at least one more goalie for depth & injuries.

UFAs to Re-sign

1. Ryan Shannon RW/C
2. Marek Svatos RW
3. Francis Lessard LW/RW
4. Curtis McElhinney G
5. David Hale LD
6. Derek Smith LD
7. Mike Brodeur G
8. André Benoit RD
9. Ryan Keller RW
10. Barry Brust G
Re-sign Shannon for sure, give oppurtunities to Hale, Benoit, Smith, and Keller to find one-ways but if they can't sign them
