Deal Booth, Ballard, Luongo for whatever futures you can get. At least of them should return something, buyout the rest.
Trade Bieksa to TBL for Purcell.
Sign Lydman (no NTC!!) and promote Corrado, keep AA around for insurance.
Sign Filppula
Sign Regin and amnestied Upshall for cheap
Start with Gaunce with an experienced core that has a lot of competition and pieces that can be traded in the middle of the season if they fall out with the new coach / lose their role.

Bolded names to illustrate the volume of change in the roster from last year.
I like this team, except for the Peter Regin part. He is soft as pudding, and not the kind of player we want to add with the division we're going into.

I also like the idea of Gaunce at C, but if it doesn't pan out, we would be extremely weak up the middle in your scenario. We need someone more reliable in the 3C spot in case Gaunce were to falter.
