If we get some big fish forward from free agency, and Bertuzzi returns, then buy Patrick Eaves out. Or in general, if we get better UFA players, shed those lower end over 30's guys out.
A few things.

1. CC has a rep, well deserved, for being made of glass. Gives us 6 D, as long as we keep Kindl and Smith (Kindl who some of us suspect is going to be dealt...) and then Sproul and Ouellet? Seems mighty thin and mighty inexperienced. I'm a fan of bringing up young talent, but the young talent I'm talking about has already spent some time in the AHL and proven themselves over a season or more.

2. The main reason people want to keep Filp, if they do at all, is because Datsyuk is very likely leaving after next year and there aren't a whole lot of proven NHL center talents lying around. Filppula can do that. Not nearly to the same level as Datsyuk, but he's a completely known quantity. With Getzlaf getting locked up and fewer big guys going to FA, what are the chances we can replace him? Right now he's playing wing so yeah you could get Nyquist to take his spot, but when Datsyuk leaves... Nyquist isn't a center. And expecting Jarnkrok is his likely first year in the NHL to fill those shoes... Whoa man. Whoa.
