Long term one of Simmonds or Hartnell has to be trade bait. For this season assuming we probably don't make a knee jerk mid season move, I would do

Raffl - Giroux - Voracek
Schenn - LeCavalier - Simmonds
Read - Couts - Downie
Hartnell - Hall - Rinaldo

Next year and beyond:

LeCavalier - Giroux - Voracek
Raffl - Couts - XXX
Read - Laughton - YYY
- Hall -

2nd and 3rd line Right wings would be one of Hartnell/Simmonds (Simmonds is awful defensively so I would play him on 2nd line if he is the one retained), and then Schenn if he is retained. I prefer to move him as I just am not that crazy about him and think he still has some value. In that case I would move him for futures or a decent D piece, and retain Downie

Maybe a guy like Cousins can make the 4th line next season, although i'm not sure how his defensive play has been this season. I'd like to improve that line into a legitimate two way unit that can pitch in on the PK, and move past Rosehill and Rinaldo anchors.
