As I look at the depth chart their will be some changes. For the forwards. The second line will need a Left-Winger to replace Huselius, and with Nolan future uncertain we may also need a Right-Winger to replace him if he doesn't resign.
For third line Vandermeer played defence for the Flames so we need a Left-Winger for this line. Yell if resigned I think he will play on the fourth line as center moving Moss to Right-Wing on third line. Boyd would play Right-Wing on the fourth line.
For the defence Regehr and Sarich will stay together. Phaneuf will be paired up with Vandermeer or Hale. Aucoin will likely have Girodano(who recently resigned). Ericksson and Warrener one of them will be gone whether traded or buyout. Making the fourth pairing Ericksson/Warrener and Vandermeer or Hale.
For the goalies Kipprussof will be the number 1 guy. I would like to have Joseph back for one full season to lighten Kipprussof workload so he does not burn out. It will be unlikely that Joseph resigns so the best option would be to give the job to Curtis McElhinney and he should see 10 to 15 games this season.

Hopefully, Eriksson will be traded, and Warrener will retire. Resign Conroy, and Nolan if the price is right. A cheap alternative to Nolan would be Gelinas, but I'd like to see the younger guys get a shot. I'm neutral on the Joseph thing, he played well, but again, I'd like to see the younger guys get a chance. I get the feeling Yelle will go back to the Av's, or Minnesota. Huselius is probably gone.
