Rozival and Coloviacco(sp) for starters. The last thing this team needs is Homer to make a knee jerk trade for some stop-gap like Jaybo or Boyle. Keep the youth and picks this year you might need it. Sign one of the above and hope it is enough to keep you competitive.

We had a lot of players that had career years last year, or was their first year. Can you expect them to match, let alone surpass those numbers? Can you expect the rookies not to have sophmore slumps?
With the Rangers getting so much better, and how deep this division is, if I was Homer I would sign the best remaining UFA and see how this team plays as is. If your below a playoff spot come trade deadline see if you can get Hartnell, Briere, and/or Timonen to waive thier clauses and get some picks and prospects to fill the farm. Then next year you will have a ton of cap space to fill out the defense and some scoring forwards.
