If we keep with the 2 UFA bit, and try to keep the budget a little lower, something like this might be doable:

S. Kostitsyn - Koivu - Hossa/Rolston/Jagr
A. Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Kovalev
Higgins - Kelly - Kostopoulos
Lapierre - Chipchura - Latendresse
Instead of paying ridiculous money for Hossa...maybe you put Lats with Koivu, that adds 10-15 goals to that line. I think he can scorre 30 maybe 35 with a good center like that.

Use the extra money to sign a centrerman like Langkow or Sundin to really give 3 scoring lines.
