And I do expect Lats to come back so atleast he could slot in instead of Clutter on that 2nd line. And Powe, I love him. He brings a lot of grit and heart in every shift and thats what you need from a 4th line guy. Nothing to say bad about him really.
Well there really isn't a ton out there for free agents. Aside from Suter as an UFA and Weber as a RFA about the only notable d-men available are Carle, Campoli, and Wideman.

For forwards it's a little better but not a ton. Besides of course Parise, and I'm not positive on all of these but I think some of the notable upcoming FA forwards are Hudler, Stoll, A. Kostitsyn, Semin, Penner, Ray Whitney, Doan, and I believe Mason Raymond is a RFA.

I'd rather just re-sign Lats than go after most of those forwards.
