If I had my own way buying out Smyth and Horcoff would be the first thing I would do...

-Let Smithson, Petrell, Khabby and Jones walk as FA
-Trade Ales Hemsky for Nick Foligno
-Sign Mark Streit and Scuderi to help out the defense core
-Re-sign Mark Fistric for some muscle on the back end
-Trade Nick Schultz for a pick
-Trade picks for Rich Peverley (Cap dump for Boston)
-Trade picks for Derek Morris (Or a similar player like him)
-Sign Viktor Stalberg, Bryan Bickell, Matt Hendricks and Raffi Torres for some grit and secondary scoring to fill out the bottom six
-Sign a backup goalie (Anton Khudobin, Ray Emery or Peter Budaj? Maybe even someone from Europe like Antti Raanta?)

Taylor Hall - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle
Nick Foligno - Sam Gagner - Nail Yakupov
Bryan Bickell - Rich Peverley - Viktor Stalberg
Raffi Torres - Matt Hendricks - Mike Brown
Teemu Hartikainen??? - Anton Lander???

Ladislav Smid - Jeff Petry
Mark Scuderi - Justin Schultz
Mark Streit - Derek Morris
Mark Fistric

Devan Dubnyk
Anton Khudobin

We have a defense by committee with a puck mover and defensive guy on each pairing.

Thats a ton of changes and likely over the cap but a man can dream
