Not sure who your list includes, but I suck at tracking this kind of stuff. However, the scenario you paint leads me to ask: what about Boll and MacKenzie? (I'm assuming Gillies isn't qualified. I guess I'd offer him a two-way.) But Jared and Derek each have one more year left and good prices but if they're taking up a roster spot for someone who's going to play higher in the lineup an bump someone down...? It's an interesting puzzle to be sure. Like you, I'd like to think at least one of this year's draft picks will be up and at least one FA forward can be signed.

Also, I have a feeling that one of our three pieces of "chaff" - Umbergerg, Brassard, and Mason - will be back nxt season. I don't know which one, and I don't have a good reason for thinking one or another, but it's just too "clean" to have all three be gone.
