You could have:

Rask-Zibanejad-Åberg aswell.

In u-18 wjc, Zibanejad was used on the rightwing with Rask being the center. Zibanejad can be a bit too defensiveminded as a center, and is freed up for being a more creative player as a winger. Åberg can play either wing. I don't know how Rask is a winger.

In the NHL-games I watched with Zibanejad (quite a few actually) I got to admit he did look better as a center, allthough he was not good at faceoffs at that level.

Johan Larsson, William Karlsson, Joakim Nordström seems like a very strong group of centers to me, so we have to have some center playing winger. Johan Larsson works excellent on the wing, but he is our best faceoff guy.
