With guys like Phillips, Haula, Lucia waiting in the wings.

The defense would still be fairly weak though:

Brodin - Scandella
Gilbert - Stoner
Spurgeon - Prosser/Falk

On the other hand, get yourself a high end defenseman, and things look different:

Heatley - Koivu - Setoguchi
Zucker - Granlund - Coyle
Larsson - Brodziak - Clutterbuck
Bulmer - Powe - Kassian?

Brodin - Dumba
Gilbert - Scandella
Spurgeon - Stoner
Either one of those lineups looks pretty good. And with some actual top 6 depth in Houston next year, either lineup should be able to sustain a few injuries without a total collapse.
