OT: How do you think this team would fare?

OK, way too much time on my hands, and discussing Brad Richards has gotten really old at this point. So I went ahead and ranked the NHL players at each position, and as if the whole league were being re-drafted, I gave my team a middle of the round pick for four rounds at each forward position, six rounds at the defenseman position, and two rounds at goalie.

In theory, I drafted the average NHL hockey team. I'm wondering how you think this team would fare in the current NHL. Please disregard salary and age (and assume Mason Raymond is healthy for next season), and just discuss how you think they would fare next year and next year only.

Here is my team (LW-C-RW):

Clarke MacArthur (Toronto) - Joe Thornton (San Jose) - Dany Heatley (San Jose)
Mason Raymond (Vancouver) - Bryan Little (Atlanta) - Kris Versteeg (Philadelphia)
Taylor Pyatt (Phoenix) - Scott Gomez (Montreal) - Nicolai Zherdev (Philadelphia)
Justin Abdelkader (Detroit) - Michal Handzus (Los Angeles) - Chuck Kobasew (Minnesota)

Defense:

John-Michael Liles (Colorado) - Roman Hamrlik (Montreal)
Fedor Tyutin (Columbus) - Chris Campoli (Chicago)
Francis Bouillon (Nashville) - Michael Sauer (New York)

Goaltenders:

Jaroslav Halak (St louis)
Curtis McilHenny (Ottawa)

What do you think? Kinda funny how Gomez, Zherdev and Tyutin wound up on my team!

How far does this team go?
