Komi being bought out is a no brainer. After July, the only real bad contract is Liles (Connolly's expires).

Keep Grabs. His numbers suffered because Carlyle used him in a checking role this season. If Bozak isn't resigned, highly likely because he and his agent think he's a #1 centre, then the Leafs will need Grabo. I've never understood why Grabo and Kessel haven't spent more time together.

The defence needs to be upgraded. Phaneuf needs a good partner he can share some of the heavy lifting. Gunnar's good and should stay, but he's not Dion's ideal partner.

A #1 center is also needed.

The problem is there's no real UFA solution and trading for any of these assets won't be easy or cheap.

The most pressing concern is coaching, figure out why the Leafs kept having trouble clearing the puck out of their own zone and fix it. It cost them this series and who knows how many more wins they would've had.
