Note: I found myself agreeing with most of "Stewie Griffins" template so I'm using that one as a frame. Here are my changes.
I'll try and keep this realistic, too:

Entry Draft:
#2 Overall - Nate MacKinnon
#17 Overall - Curtis Lazar
#28 Overall - Robert Hägg

Free Agency:

Roman Cervenka
Leland Irving
Krys Kolanos
Bryan Cameron
Ryan Howse


Mikael Backlund - 2 years, $5 million ($2.5 million AAV)
T. J. Brodie - 4 years, $11 million ($2.75 million AAV)
Chris Butler - 1 years, $2 million ($2 million AAV)
Lance Bouma - 2 years, $1.4 million ($0.7 million AAV)
Greg Nemisz - 1 year, $550,000, two way (last chance really)
Mark Cundari - 2 years, $1.3 million ($0.65 million AAV) two way
Reto Berra - 2 years, $1.6 million two way ($0.8 million)
Kari Ramo - 2 years $ 4.5 million ($2.25 million AAV)
Nathan MacKinnon - 3 year ELC, $3.75 million AAV

IN :
Al Montoya - 1 year, 1.5million, one way
via trade: Ballard + 2nd & 4th 2014 for Butler.

Abbotsford re-signings:
Brady Lamb, Akim Aliu, Paul Byron, Danny Taylor, Markus Granlund, John Ramage, Ben Hanowski, Brett Carson, Berra

2013/14 Lineup:

Tanguay - Backlund - GlenX
Baertschi - MacKinnon - Cammy
Stempniak - Stajan - Hudler
Bouma - Reinhart - McGrattan/Jackman

Giordano - Wideman
Ballard - Brodie
Smith - Cundari / Sarich

Ramo / Montoya

The lineup is obviously getting younger, and this should be the last year Cammy plays for us (deadline trade). There is a good mix of skill: Mac, Baer, Backs, Brodie, Cammy, Stemp. & a quite a bit of grit/muscle: Gratz, Jackman, Gio, Ballard, Cundari, Bouma.

I like the idea of keeping the toughest guy in the league incase any idiot makes a run at one of our young guys.
