I see us keeping one, maybe two at most of their top-6 guys.
I think they'll go the same route with Johnson as they did with Conacher last season: Despite (looking good in camp and) having a breakout season they'll let him enjoy it and learn from it as much as possible by keeping him in the AHL.
In case they think we need a little competition among our top-6 I could see Connolly returning (he knows the system and has had a great year so far) or Conacher (who fits Boucher's critera of the always buzzing and pressing hockey player; he has also kinda earned it last season but he hasn't quite found his groove yet).
I think many of us would love to see Killorn work his way in the lineup somehow, maybe centering our 3rd line but management might play it safe with him, too. Which brings us to Wilson, Tyrell, Wyman (and Angelidis). All of them have played for the Lightning or an NHL team already and should have a good chance of cracking our bottom-6 or at least our extended NHL roster.
