I'd keep Crosby, Kane and Letang. I wouldn't drop Crosby. I think that the risk for you is too high if he fully recovers. Don't you have IR spots?
Or actually, that's what I'd do: Keep Staal and Ward, that's ok. Do also keep Crosby and Kane. But then, my D keeper would be Letang, and certainly not Wisniewski! Letang is 3 years younger, had only 1 point less (50 - 51), had a far better +/- (+15 compared to -14, and it will stay this way because PIT is much better than CLB), has more talent around him (---> PP Points!), shoots more (236 - 158), has more PIM (101 - 38), more hits (167 - 52), more blocked shots (109 - 35) and imo more upside.
Points aren't everything. Don't overrate Wiz just because he had a random career year with 1 point more than Letang. He also plays on a much weaker team.
And then, my 6th keeper would be Lucic. He gives you a good points, +/-, PIM combo.
The rest of the forwards is either old (Briere, Smyth), injury prone (Spezza, Bergeron, Cammalleri) or overrated (Kovalchuk).
