LOL Regier hangs up laughing.
Sign Clowe and Mcgratton as FA
I don't mind these moves, but is Clowe and his anticipated over-paid UFA contract (likely 3.5-4M+) worth it?
Buyout Belanger and Smyth
Neither make 3M+ - I'm not 100% on this but some posters are saying there's a 3M minimum on compliance buyouts - I'd opt for buyout out Horcoff/N.Schultz instead
Let jones, and Whitney walk

Next year:
Hall Gagner Eberle
Lucic RNH Yakupov
Ott Horcoff Clowe
Mcgratton Smithson Brown

JSchultz and (FA. Not sure who)
Smid Petry
Fistric Klefbom
Yikes. Kid has been failing miserably in a 2nd pairing role and suddenly he's a top-pairing defenseman?

I think a top-2 C set of Gagner-RNH is terrible if you're going to compete against Sedin-Kesler, Thornton-Pavelski, Kopitar-Richards, Getzlaf-Holland, Hanzal-? next year. Gagner needs to be replaced with a bigger 2C (yes, even if it means losing his offensive touch).
