Default 2014/2015 Season - Shaping Up TBL Roster

This off-season should prove to be extremely busy for Yzerman. He'll have a amnesty buyout option, he'll have 9 restricted free agents - 8 of which should be receiving matching offers and automatically re-signed with the 9th being Aulie which I'd like to keep in the organization. He'll have to decide on Salo's (39) contract as he becomes a UFA. And he'll have to decide on Lebrie, Pyatt, and Brian Lee's contract as they also become UFA's.

This off-season is the cross-roads between yearly play-off and cup contention - the right decisions will prove to be KEY in years to come.

If the 9 RFAs (Lindback, Barberio, Sustr, Aulie, Palat, Panik, TJ, Connolly, and Killorn) are re-signed. The four UFAs (Salo, Lebrie, Pyatt, and Lee) are not re-signed and Malone is bought out.

That leaves 3 roster spots open for the 2014/2015 season. One free agent signing and 2 call ups from either the QJMHL or AHL leagues. What are the early predictions for:

1 - Free Agent Signing position of need? For example, PF or #1/#2 Defenseman.
2 - Who from QJMHL and AHL makes the TBL roster?

My Answer to #1 is a gritty #1 pairing defensman.
My answer to #2 is Dmitry Korobov (as mostly healthy scratch) but replaces Lebrie's grit against certain teams and I'm torn between Drouin who's only option is to go back to QJMHL and Kuch.

If Salo's play doesn't decline much and he takes a discount for a one year deal I can see him being brought back next year.

So for your number 1 - you are looking at #1/#2 Defensmen FA signing. Salo being a possibility FA signing.

For number 2?
