Just won my first Stanley Cup with the Blues in my fifth year. I let my veteran core of forwards (Tkachuk, Weight, Guerin) walk in the offseason and traded Khabibulin and Brewer for cap reasons after signing Lecavalier, Gonchar and Luongo. Khabibulin was dealt for O'Sullivan and a 4th, and Brewer for Callahan. Both worked out A LOT better than I had expected.

Cup-winning Roster:
Patrick Kane (1/1, 07) - Vincent Lecavalier - Lee Stempniak
Ville Leino - TJ Oshie - Patrick O'Sullivan
Mattias Weinhandl - Patrik Berglund - Ryan Callahan
Jay McClement - Dan Hinote - Ray Whitney

Scott Hannan - Sergei Gonchar
Jay McKee - Erik Johnson
Ryan McDonagh (1/14, 07) - Dennis Wideman

Roberto Luongo
Marek Schwarz

Everyone in my top-9 finished with around 70 points which provided an incredibly balanced attack. Scott Hannan had an incredible year (9.07 AvR) while Gonchar and McKee were solid as well. Johnson and Wideman struggled, though McDonagh was a nice surprise as a rookie (finished third in Calder voting; Berglund won).

Current Roster:
Patrick Kane - Vincent Lecavalier - Steven Stamkos (1/1, 08)
Mattias Weinhandl - Patrik Berglund - Patrick O'Sullivan
Ville Leino - TJ Oshie - Ryan Callahan
Jay McClement - Marcel Goc - Nicklas Lasu (6/159, 09)

Scott Hannan - Erik Johnson
Jay McKee - Sergei Gonchar
Ryan McDonagh - Tom Poti

Roberto Luongo
