This is an outline of what I think the roster should look like next season.

According to capgeek, they have about 11,000,000 left to spend. (Lets say they sign Ryder for around 4,5 million.)

-They need to trade Gionta and Desharnais get a 3rd liner in a trade. (maybe craig smith for cheap.)
-Sign someone like Clarkson or Clowe for Galchenyuk's wing.
-Sign a big defensive partner for Diaz. Maybe Regehr?
-Sign a 4th line centre and depth forward. Maybe Steckel or Lapierre and Bickell?

I don't see the point of sticking Galchenyuk as #2 center at 19. That goes against one of the things MB keeps saying about young players, he hates rushing them. That's why Drewiske and Weber are playing instaed of Beaulieu and Tinordi. Better to hold up your prospect and have them be ready to succees than rush them into a no win situation.
