Kessel is an elite winger. Phaneuf is a very good dman. We need to add to these guys.

Time to quite overpaying 2nd liners like Grabo, CMac. Trade both of them.

If we can good value for Liles and Komisarek trade them. Not likely though so they probably stay.

Trade Franson cause his skillset is redundant here.

Trade Bozak and Gunnarson if they want significant raises.

Build around Kessel, Lupul, JVR, Kadri, Rielly, Phaneuf, Gardiner and our 1st rounder. Have lots of extra picks in a good draft and loads of cap room in a good free agency group.

This team isn`t as far away as people think. We`ve got some nice pieces but we need to add 2-3 more core pieces and just give our youngs guy like Gardiner, Rielly, Kadri a bit more time. Add in a top 5 or 10 pick and a key free agent plus stocking up on lots of extra picks in a deep draft is the way to build this team up for years to come.
