Rolston - Elias - Josefson/Tedenby
Bergfors - Zubrus - Clarkson
Halischuk - Cormier - Zharkov

(That fourth line would be so awesome.)

On defense, I'd go with

Corrente/Fraser/Eckford/Mottau, pick two


And the Devils would wreck the NHL.
I do like the D and obviously the Top-line is established, but that's about it.

Rolston being a year older and on the decline doesn't particularly scare me either. You've got a lot of youth on a team playing big roles. Tedenby/Josefson I can't see being significant threats next season. A 4th line of 2 rookies and a sophomore, would be too green to excel, who've you got to take their spots when they get burned by an offensive team over and over?

I think the team Washington built would eat the Devils alive. I also believe my Flames would as well.
