I think they might want to consider Hartikainen as a C as well. He's played at that position as a junior.
Really, this year is a bit of a wash and cap wise next year is pretty easy to sort out.
Klefbom replaces Whitney - about 3.75M in savings
Resign Smid - 4M - long term - 1.75M increase in cap hit
Hartikainen (or alternative) as 3rd line centre - 1.5M - 4M in cap savings
Maybe Lander becomes the 3rd line centre he's been hyped to become in 2014/2015?
Then you hope that Musil, Marincin, Gernat, Tuebert of Davidson is able to become a no.6/7 in 3 or so years.
These moves save 6M in cap space - additional savings could come from losing Hemsky in 2014 (or resigning him at a lower rate).
Backup (could be Bunz or Roy - if not, then a 1.5M UFA)
