Nieto and Hertl probably aren't ready to play top 6 next year, but then again, nobody thought Couture would score 30 goals in his first season so meh.

I'd like to see us go after Viktor Stalberg and Jaromir Jagr. If we trade Boyle for futures and JT for stuff from the Blues and Perron we save 13 mil cap space, and these guys would only cost us about 8m, which would fit with the decreasing cap, and re-sign Raffi for 2. Then we can run

Stalberg-Couture-Marleau
Havlat-Pavelski-Perron
Jagr-Hertl-Torres
Desjardins-Sheppard-Wingels

Vlasic-Burns
Stuart-Demers
Braun-Irwin

And also fix that prospect pool.
