Assuming Handzus is traded (and I will leave Brashear on the squad for the time being):

Gagne-Forsberg-Knuble
Veteran Winger Acquisition-Carter-Sharp
Kapanen-Primeau-Radivojevic
Brashear-Richards-Stevenson
Sim, Umberger(?)

Johnsson-Hatcher
Pitkanen-Rathje
Seidenberg-Desjardins
Therien

Esche, Nitty

Looks insanely good. Great top-end talent, with good depth. Skill, physicality, young solid goaltending. The main concerns are injuries and the team gelling properly. It might be an awkward first month or two of the season, which wil be strange. The Flyers usually look like Stanley Cup champs in November, and then stop scoring in February or March. This team may take until Christmas to really come together. The 11-game road trip in December/January will let us know where we are. I am very excited. If Zeus stays with the team, look for:

Gagne-Forsberg-Carter
Knuble-Handzus-Radivojevic
Kapanen-Primeau-Sharp
Brashear-Richards-Stevenson
Sim, Umberger(?)

Almost as good, and with one of the best top lines in the league.
