I hope we resign Downie - which I see happening
I also think we do resign Emery but if not Khubodin and Elliot could slide in nicely.

Cogliano, Andrew C ANA 26 $2,390,000 2014 (UFA)
Nikitin, Nikita D CLB 27 $2,150,000 2014 (UFA) - intrigued by this.
Fiddler, Vernon C DAL 33 $1,800,000 2014 (UFA)
Elliott, Brian G STL 28 $1,800,000 2014 (UFA)
Nikitin would be nice but I've heard on NHL Radio that CBJ is very high on him so I'm not sure they let him walk unless he wants a ton of money, at which point I think the Flyers should back off anyway.

From that list, names I'd like to see pursued are Vanek, Callahan, Gabbo, Steen (though he probably will want a ton and his injury history worries me), Vrbata, and Kulemin. Elliot would be nice but the backup goalie position doesn't worry me too much if Mason continues to impress.
