Personally, I think the core forwards we keep are Thornton, Pavelski, Couture and Havlat, although I would trade Couture (sorry) if it allowed us to pick up Rick Nash.
Marleau is a connundrum. His NTC makes him hard work and his value around the league will be depressed again because of his disappearance this postseason. I would definitely consider moving him but I doubt he wants to go anywhere...
Clowe when on his game is integral. But if we can add Nash, I think he becomes the odd man out and has some reasonable trade value.
Defensively, honestly? I'd move Dan Boyle. I think his best days are behind him. Keep Burns, Vlasic, Braun and the rest, I'm not fussed.
Niemi will stay because of his contract length but I agree, the goalie spot needs to see an open competition. If Schneider can take away a spot from an allstar goalie like Luongo and his 400 year contract, the spot should be open in SJ.
As for McClellan... I'm not convinced.
Wilson needs to stay and oversee it though. But the changes need to be significant.
