If it were me:
-Assume all notable RFA's are resigned at reasonable price
-Let Samuelsson, Bertuzzi, Cleary and Legwand walk
-Re-sign Alfredsson if he wants to return. If not, target an affordable UFA forward that can score (Jagr, Iginla, Moulson, Bolland, Vrbata, Michalek, Jussi Jokinen, Raymond).
-Sign cheap (>$750k for a year...) role player as #14 forward to keep the flies off when needed (Rupp, Glass, Parros, Konopka, Thorburn, Carcillo, Barch, Scott, Mike Brown, Bissonette, Westgarth, Janssen, etc.).
-Start Jurco in GR, but recall when injuries create openings
-Re-sign DeKeyser obviously.
-Target Boyle or Zidlicky as a UFA top 4 RH PP Quarterback for 1-2 years
-Offer Quincey a reasonable deal to stay on as a third pairing guy.
-If Quincey walks, target a physical defensive UFA dman (Orpik, Mitchell, Morris, Green, Robidas, Doug Murray, Volchenkov (If NJ uses a compliance...))
-Find taker for Lashoff or expose to waivers before season start. I've got to think that with two solid UFA dmen added and Ouellet, Sproul and Marchenko in the mix, Lashoff and his easily buryable salary become expendable.
-Offer to re-sign Gustavsson for another year. If he walks and depending on cap space, explore the following options:
a) Sign for 1 year, an experienced 1B/backup goalie (Bryzgalov, Thomas, Emery) or an established backup (Elliot, Greiss, Montoya, Chad Johnson, Hutton, McIlhinney, Justin Peters)
b) Promote Mrazek to backup, but sign an NHL experienced goalie for depth/insurance (Dubnyk, JMac, LaBarbara, etc.)
Could look something like this:
Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Abdelkader
Franzen - Weiss - Alfredsson/UFA
Nyquist - Sheahan - Tatar
Miller - Glendening/Andersson - Helm
Kronwall - Ericsson
DeKeyser - Boyle/Zidlicky/UFA
Some combination of UFA/Smith/Kindl
