-Re-sign Winnik, Galiardi, Braun, Desy, all our RFAs, etc.
-Let Vandermeer, White, and Winchester go. Re-sign Mitchell if he'll take less than $1M.
-Trade Handzus for a 7th rounder, or buy him out if need be.
-See what offers you can get for Boyle. Don't shop him, but listen. If you can get another young top-6 winger, or a very high pick, do it.
-Move Pavelski down to be the third-line pivot. I think he and Winnik could be a very good combination, not to mention that they'd be a legitimate shutdown line.
-Sign a depth #6 defenseman. Sign a PKing fourth liner.

I would not be surprised if Boyle gets traded. He has a clause this summer with a window. Mitchell needs to go. Sorry, there are better players then him for that price.

Not sure if Couture is ready to take top line duty. I like Pavs as a center, even on the third line, but I think you have to give him someone with a bit more scoring touch. Maybe Wingles could fill that, maybe not.

Handzus will probably be bought out.

Also, very curious if a goaltender will be gone after. I am looking at you Harding.
