Who will be back next year?

Ray Shero has his work cut out for him this off season.

In yet another first round Stanley Cup Playoff exit, it's obvious the Pittsburgh Penguins needs a roster shakeup. Names like Jordan Staal, Paul Martin, Brooks Orpik and Kris Letang have been tossed around as potential targets.

Here's a list of players who are UFA for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. What does the Penguins' front office need to do to make it out of the first round, let alone another run at a Stanley Cup?
