I'm on the same page as Dan-o, a lot of goalies will be on the market this summer; Nabby is aging and won't be able to play 60 games anymore, Poulin hasn't shown he can be a viable NHL backup at this point, Nilsson basically missed a whole year with a B12 or RBC deficiency (not sure which one), Koskinen resigned for two years in Finland, and I want DiPi as far away as possible from this team.
On the defensive side of things, it's not looking like they're going to resign Streit, and I doubt Marty is resigned either. I expect Hickey and Donovan to compete for Streit's spot and veteran to be signed to split time with Carkner like Marty did.
Offensively, it's not a secret JT needs another wing but I don't the see Isles making much noise, maybe a minor signing like Boyes from last year.
