The two major things are to sign Richards and get rid of Drury's contract. After that work on the RFA's--starting with Callahan and Dubinsky--hopefully starting with 4 year deals which I figure will be in the $4 mil per year range. Anisimov should get about half of that for about 2 years. Boyle somewhere around $1.5-1.8 for 2 years. Sauer somewhere between $1.3 and 1.5 for two years.

Bringing back Fedotenko--good idea. I think Prospal is shot and that's too bad because the last two seasons I think he's given the team a lot of spirit but I don't think we're going down that road again. Bringing in one veteran d-man--depending on how much cap space--I'd aim at mid-late 20's d-men like Bieska, Ehrhoff, Pitkanen, Wisniewski, White etc.

As for the Hagelin's, Thomas's if they can earn a spot then fine--but I wouldn't be counting on them right away.

Draft wise--I'm hoping that a Schiefele, Armia or a McNeill might still be around--if not I'm not against drafting a d-man like Oleksiak or Klefbom if they're still around at 15. I don't think we'll be moving up now that we've traded our 2 2nd's. Then again if all those forwards are gone we could trade down in the draft and maybe pick up an extra pick or two and get the same quality player.
