1) Buyout Drury, but not Wolski or Avery

2) Re-sign RFAs (except Gilroy)

3) Sign Richards ($7m cap hit or less, up to 7 years)

4) Keep Prospal or Fedotenko (hopefully in a wink-wink deal where that player remains "un-signed" until training camp, but is promised the contract now to give us even more summer cap space)

If Prospal is the UFA LW that returns:
Prospal - Richards - Gaborik
Dubinsky - Anisimov - Callahan
Wolski - Stepan - Zuccarello
Avery - Boyle - Prust
Weise or Christensen (should try to trade Christensen at the draft for a late pick)

If Fedotenko is the UFA LW that returns:
Dubinsky - Richards - Gaborik
Wolski - Anisimov - Callahan
Fedotenko - Stepan - Zuccarello
Avery - Boyle - Prust
Weise or Christensen (should try to trade Christensen at the draft for a late pick)

Defensively, Staal, Girardi, McDonagh, and Sauer are locks. Erixon also looks like a lock based upon recent comments. Del Zotto and Valentenko will also compete for a spot in camp, with the possibility of Kundratek surprising or Eminger coming back at a <$1m cap hit to fill the #6-#7 d role.
