Ugh. Not happy Smyth will be back. Where do you put him when he's barely a roster player on this team that is supposedly going to have major changes in the off-season? Does he take a role as a Press Box player who jumps in every once in a while? Doubt it..

MacTavish confirmed we should see around 8 new players next season.. doesn't seem like there will be that many spots available to me. I think Hemsky is guaranteed to be traded. Belanger, Jones, Smithson, Petrell?, Whitney, Peckham, Potter (please), Fistric?, Khabibulin will all be gone.

So..

Hall - Nuge - Yak
xxx - Gagner? - Eberle
Paajarvi - Horcoff? - xxx
Smyth - xxx - Brown
xxx - xxx (Petrell)

xxx - J. Schultz
Smid - Petry
Klefbom - N. Schultz?
xxx (Fistric)

Dubnyk
xxx

The question marks are maybe the bolder moves Mac was referring to. A Horcoff buyout, or a Nick Schultz trade seem the most likely to me. The way he was talking about Gagner today makes me believe he'll be back.

Really tough to predict what will happen. I don't think there's any doubt Belanger, Jones, Whitney, Peckham, Khabibulin, Hemsky, Smithson, and one of Potter or Fistric will be gone, however.
