Glad you said 3 years, cuz all these future lineups make no sense. A lineup changes every single year.
Cole would be on the last year of his contract then and i put Markov on the third pairing because i believe even if he weren't to get back to who he was, he will still be an epic bottom pairing D and PP specialist. like i said, this is best case scenario for the prospects and its still possible that players we already have end up better than we thought. Palushaj and White both look like they could be solid. and who knows what the ceiling is for Eller and DD

edit: for sake of argument.. let's say a bunch of these prospects don't pan out and the extras we have don't step up and Galchenyuk still needs time to adjust

Pacioretty-Desharnais-Palushaj
Bourque -Plekanec-Cole
White-Eller-Leblanc
Geoffrion-Galchenyuk-Schultz

we could even end up resigning Moen for three years or Gionta after this contract ends. and as you can see, i'm high on palushaj (but the top three RW would seem to be interchangeable based on expected steady progress and regression)
