I wouldn't say every cup team has one, but I'm not thinking too hard about it. Did Tampa have one? Or Carolina for that matter?

Yeah, probably Kovalev in terms of talent. Probably Koivu in terms of consistency and effort.

I'd suggest Koivu.

Lapierre (11th NHL overall) and Koivu (16th) are both excellent face-off men.

I guess Kovalev and Markov, but I admit the PP needs to be repaired or stopgapped before the playoffs.

Latendresse, believe it or not, is and has been pretty good at that this season.

Not sure every Cup team has these, but I would suggest Lapierre. Though he is agitating less now than he did last season, but he seems able to get under Crosby's skin.

I think there's obviously a core of players without which this team pales, but that core is getting older and many are UFAs this offseason. I don't think it's a stretch to think that core will look significantly different next season.
