Philadelphia vs. Detroit is pretty tough.
The Flyers have 7 guys this season who project to 25 goals or more over the course of 82 games (Gagne, Richards, Carter, Hartnell, Lupul, Knuble, and Briere), that's great scoring depth.
Both teams are lead by 3 excellent two-way players, with Detroit's big 3 having a slight edge (though I think Philadelphia's big 3 have been slightly more effective this season with 100 points in 86 total games vs. 80 points in 82 games for Detroit's trio).
Beyond that, you have Briere/Hartnell/Lupul/Knuble vs. Franzen/Holmstrom/Hudler/Filppula.
The question is a little confusing in that it asks for the top offensive FORWARD groups and then goes onto list defenseman. If we're talking strictly forwards, then I think the Flyers have the slight edge overall. If we're talking offensive teams then the slight edge might go to Detroit because of Lidstrom, Rafalski, Kronwall, etc.. having a slight edge offensively over Timonen/Carle/Coburn etc..
