What I want to see out of the realm of the realistically possible:
Basically, a balanced three lines combined with a 4th line that would be used very sparingly in specific tactical situations. Hopefully, at least one of the youngsters develops enough to be added to the Ovechkin-Datsyuk line. But obviously, the more that are legitimately good enough to make the team - the better. I also think it's important to move away from the four defensive pairings: there is just no need for them as far as icetime is concerned, and having both an extra defenseman and forward gives more room for tactical adjustments and forced changes on account of injury. On that note, to maximize the ability to juggle lines - the extra forward should be a centre... Malkin or Grigorenko can be moved to the wing (with the extra centre taking their spot) should a winger need to be replaced/benched/etc.
