Hoo boy. I'm going to TRY and be realistic here.
-At the draft, doesn't matter who gets picked. We just shipped the 7th pick out with Ales Hemsky for Tyler Myers.*
-We also trade Gagner for Adam Henrique and a 3rd
-We re-sign Smithson and Fistric as PB depth and jettison Brown, Petrell, Hordichuk, Jones, Belanger (buy out), Eager (buy out), Peckham, Potter (bury him if necessary), and Khabibulin. Man, we had a lot of crap on the roster last year.
-Then we replace them with capable guys off the FA pile like Clowe, Cleary (an old MacT favorite), Gordon, Armstrong, Hainsey, and Greiss... I realize that this is a lot of FA signings but MacT kind of hinted at that in his session on After Hours, and we would have lots of holes to fill with all the guys we would be letting go.
*Not sure if Buffalo goes for that deal without a D-man coming back, but they avoid the potential cap trouble of Myers' deal by cutting it back to 5.5 for just next year with Hemsky, and replace his 'potential' by adding a second top ten pick. Seems logical, I would probably add to it if necessary though.
