Regher-Doughty
Scuderi-Voynov
Muzzin-Greene
Martinez
Ellerby (maybe)

That's a solid group. Martinez is better than his performance last season and Ellerby isn't a lost cause at all.

LTIR doesn't seem like the fool proof option either. From what I can gather it might be more of a headache than it's worth. I'd rather have Scuds back for sure and cap space certainy than gamble on Mithchell maybe not at 100% for a full season.
Easy, tiger..I think it's a bit premature to rule Mitchell out for next year. He's motivated and back skating. I am going to take a more optimistic view that we see him in the lineup.
