Those guys are competing for two regular spots, three at most. Kostitsyn is easy to rule out, but from there it's all personal preference. None of those guys really have significant value, but a bunch of mid- and late-round draft picks would probably be better for the organization than a glut of grinders.
Spaling should be re-signed, and Clune was solid enough in his role to assume he'll stick. Smith and Kostitsyn should be expected on the roster due to contract status. Barring trades or FA signings, definite forwards look like:

Legwand
Fisher
Hornqvist
Kostitsyn
Wilson
Gaustad
Smith
Bourque
Clune
(Spaling)
