First step, create space for prospects and/ or free agents.
Regin: let him walk
Lattendresse: likely let him walk
Condra: try and trade him at the draft, otherwise let him walk
Daugavins: same as Condra
Gonchar: let him walk
Lundin: let him walk
From there, I see six forward prospects and four defencemen prospects who are all close and could push for a spot next season, they are:
Forwards: Zibanejad, Stone, Silfverberg, Noesen, Hoffman and Dziurzynski
Defencemen: Boroweicki, Gryba, Wiercioch and Ceci

Next step, UFA targets
Iginla, Perry, Morrow, Horton, Clowe, Clarkson
Defencemen: Regehr, Edler, Murray
