My first priorities are Howard and Edler. If getting those two means the wings have to let Filppula go then so be it. Our need at defense is much more important than at offense. Plus, we have a Nyquist, Brunner, Tatar, and Mursak ready with Jarnkrok not far behind.

There are some pretty good forwards this offseason if they aren't resigned. I'd rather see us re-sign Fil and then go straight for the second tier guys. Burrows or Ryder would be great with Datsyuk. One of them + Edler would be awesome. Then just re-sign our RFAs and let the rest walk.

Nyquist - Datsyuk - Ryder
Franzen - Zetterberg - Brunner
Tatar - Filppula - Samuelsson
Mursak - Helm - Tootoo

Edler - Kronwall
Smith - Ericsson
Quincey - Kindl/Coliacavo

It lets FOUR rookies into the line-up and gives us three legit scoring lines if Nyquist, Brunner, and Tatar work out. If not we can always go back to the two main scoring lines with Helm as 3C. I didn't include Abdelkader or Bertuzzi as I'd rather see them traded for picks.
