Next year's roster will look pretty much the same as it stands now. Only players to leave will be Hejduk (retire), McLeod and Hunwick (both UFA). They will be replaced by calling up Patrick Bordeleau, another forward (preferabaly sign Grabovski, but will probably just be Malone making the team) and a UFA defenseman (would be nice if it were Suter, but most likely Matt Carle).

The thing that concerns me with the Avs supposedly planning of waiting till the new CBA before spending money is: Free agency begins July 1st, and the current CBA expires Sept. 15. Unless a new CBA is agreed upon before July 1st (haven't even started really talking), there is no way on knowing what the upper cap limit will be prior to July 1st, and thus each team will have their own in-house salary cap based on what their owners believe will be the new salary cap.
