Habs lineup in 3 years?

Was bored and looked at our current lineup and also at our up and coming prospects. There are alot of players that we will be drafting/trading for so alot could happen from now until then but assuming the players we currently have develop as expected we should be seeing a pretty sweet lineup. I attempted to put them all into lines and was wondering what you guys thought about it. So here we go:

1st scoring line:
Kastsitsyn Koivu Zednik
This could be the first time that Koivu would have 2 potential 30 goal scorers which should allow Koivu to hit the 80 pts mark. This line has great playmaking and speed on the wings.

2nd scoring line:
Ryder Higgins Perezhogin
Higgins could be over 200 lbs by then and with his solid 2-way play could potentially be the ideal 2nd line Center that we have been hoping for. This line could be a pest for opposing teams as each player can play both ends of the ice and with Ryder and Higgins have players that dont mind the rough stuff.

3rd checking line:
Bulis Plekanec Ward
Plekanec has shown great progress and IMO is the 3rd line Center of the future. Bulis and Ward are also great 2-way players that can work well along the boards and with Bulis they can open up the ice with his speed.

4th grinder line:
Bonneau Lapierre Ferland
This line will deliver alot of bang. We could have other players on this line that are designated enforcers.

NOTE: If all our prospects develop to their fullest there will have to be some trades as not everyone can play...see Urquhart, Hossa, Ribeiro etc. This does not mean that I have given up on those players but the players above would just fit those roles better imo.

Now to the future defense pairings:

1st pairing:
Markov Komisarek

2 words: Kick Ass

2nd pairing:
Souray Korneev

Korneev a poor mans Markov?

3rd pairing:
Hainsey Korpikari
with Hainsey you get good production and with Korpikari you get good D. both have good size.

In goal its a no brainer...
