We have about 8.0M of cap space this summer with Stastny, O'Reilly, Landeskog, Duchene, Downie, McGinn and Barries contract up next summer. Unless we are going for someone with a 1-year contract, I think not much will happen. It wouldn't make much sense from a cap-perspective to sign some d-man like Scuderi for 2-3 years with a big salary. Unless they want to handcuff themselces for thar 2014 summer.
Edit: After the re-signing of Landeskog, O'Reilly, Duchene etc we might go hard on the free agency at the summer of 2014. Would make more sense then doing it now. Not really any attrative pieces in the market now and we don't know how much money we will have availble for the next few years until AFTER we have re-signed our courplayers.
I feel like they'll make another trade for a defenseman. At the draft maybe.
I think they'll try to unload Jones and one of Zanon or O'Brien (hopefully Zanon) too for whatever they can get, and look to replace them with mid tier UFAs.
Or they could do very little like you say, but I feel like they'll push hard to get those things done.
