That is really a tough one. We have a lot of players that might be quite equally good by then. These guys come to mind:

Markstrom 25 yrs
Lundquist 33 yrs

Lundqvist in his prime and Markstrom closing in on his. Markstrom should also be a world class keeper by now and his potential is probably a bit higher than Lundqvist's.

OEL 24 yrs
Adam Larsson 22 yrs
Hedman 24 yrs
Erik Karlsson 25 yrs

Everyone but Adam Larsson are very established NHL'ers that are only a few years away from their prime by now. Adam Larsson is however mature beyond his years and it wouldn't surprise me if he had a Doughty-like development in the NHL. My hunch is that OEL and Larsson is a tad better than the other two.

Backstrom 27 yrs
MPS 24 yrs
Zetterberg 34 yrs

Backstrom probably gets the nod here. But MPS has untapped offensive potential and if Z is continues to be the arguably best playoff player in hockey, you can't count him out either.
