With NW and DL together to be more efficient there will have to be routes cut or reduced. In addition delta has returned some planes to leasors. In this economic climate and with so many hubs to work with DL cant be overlapping all over the place with the current frequencies. They need to be more efficient. What domesitc routes will we see cut/reduced/relocated/ frequency changes. For example we have already seen DL add quite a few NWA strong markets in the midwest to SLC to reduce backtracking and allow better connections out west.

I think you will see some pruning here and there, but remember, DL has all along said that this was a merger of "addition", not subtraction, and plans to keep all hubs. The future remains to be seen how well they stick to their word. We have been seeing markets west of MSP being added to SLC (LNK, FSD, FAR etc). I could see more of that. Markets generally east of the Mississippi are fairly covered well with DTW, CVG, MEM and ATL, so I don't know how much overlapping will be cut. You may see some frquency reductions to hubs (example, GSO has cut down to 1x daily to MEM, so the remaining traffic will be routed over ATL, and also CVG has been hit some cuts as well in favor of DTW-see FSD). Might see some more of that kind of tinkering.
