We don't have forward prospects.
As it stands, we've got one more NHL defenseman than we need right now, and I'm not sure how Gelinas or Urbom or Burlon could earn a roster spot given all the NHL depth ahead of them. And that's about a third of the defenseman who
be worthy in the next couple years.
Right now, we have six defenseman signed through 2013-2014, with Zidlicky and Harrold becoming UFAs. It seems that one defenseman has to go, which would give us five defenseman signed through 2013-2014.

I could see us resigning Harrold as well.
