Cleary/Helm/Sammy
Miller/Abdelkader/Tootoo
Eaves
Emmerton

Mursak has clearly been the odd man out. So we can assume he's gone. Now let's look at who's going for next year:

?/Dats/Bert
Franzen/Z/?
?/Helm/Sammy
?/Abby/Tootoo
Eaves
Emmerton

I count four spots.

Now we must use logic. They of course would retain Flip and Brunner if possible assuming Brunner works out. After that, they have the option to retain Miller and run two checking lines, or they can bring in Nyquist and Tatar and shift to three scoring lines. Maybe something like this:

Bert/Dats/Tatar
Nyquist/Z/Brunner
Franzen/Flip/Sammy
Abby/Helm/Tootoo
Eaves
Emmerton

Z, Dats, Franzen, Flip, Brunner, Sammy, and perhaps Nyquist/Tatar will all get their PP time. Flip, Z, and Dats would also likely see PK time.
FILPPULA WILL NOT BE A 3RD LINE CENTER AGAIN UNTIL HE'S OLD!!! Helm can center a 3rd line scoring, he's a decent playmaker.
