Clowe will be here for a while.

Nash, Stepan, Cally, Boyle, Hagelin, Clowe, Zuccarello, Dorsett, Brassard, Staal, Girardi, McDonagh, MDZ and Moore.

Even if they buyout Richards, that only leaves 4 forwards spots open and 1 on defense. That's with Fast, Lindberg, Kreider, Miller, McIlrath and Thomas all close to making the team.
Our only spot on the blue line next year is likely for a seventh defenseman, for which it would be good to have Steve Eminger in that role (Roman Hamrlik and Matt Gilroy have become afterthoughts with Torts choosing to play a much younger John Moore instead). The next spot in the Top 6 to open up would be then when Stralman is a UFA, and then after that when Staal is a UFA (presuming he leaves to join his brothers in Carolina).
