Smyth, Belanger, and Petrell are fixtures in our current bottom 6.

Ideally we have a top 6 of Hall, RNH, Eberle, Yakupov, Gagner+big top 6 forward going into next season. If we can't acquire that big top 6 forward, we'll give Paajarvi a shot there, as he seems to have become a completely different player this season. Horcoff, as much as I hate him, is still a servicable 3rd line center, and we'll have more than enough cap space to eat his contract next season with Whitney and Khabibulin coming off the books. I would give Anton Lander a shot on the 4th line, and let him play his way up, the same goes for Teemu Hartikainen. Mike Brown is basically what we expected Ben Eager to be. Ryan Jones provided he doesn't ask for too much money (think 4 years 3 million dollars ish), should be resigned, so there's 5 accounted for. Some guys I think we could get for cheap to fill out the last spot in free agency are: Brenden Morrow, Raffi Torres, Pascal Dupuis, Chris Higgins, and Dustin Penner (he was pretty good with us last time, a 1 year deal wont hurt).
