Since these things never actually materialize, I'm just going to go all-out. I hope nobody takes this too seriously and loses their s---.

Perry-Getzlaf-Kessel
van Riemsdyk-Grabovski-Frattin
Kulemin-Colborne?/Bozak?-Ashton/Biggs
X-X-X

Rielly-Phaneuf
Schultz-Gardiner
Gunnarsson/Blacker/Percy-X

Luongo
X

Reasoning:

I see Burke pressing extremely hard for Getzlaf and Perry, if they make it to FA. He's not been shy about the fact that he loves the team he established with the Anaheim Ducks (Carlyle, Lupul, Giguere, Gardiner, Brown, Deschamps, Schultz?). Whether or not he can pry one or both away remains to be seen however.

I like Steckel & Brown on the fourth line, but fourth liners don't stick with teams for very long so I'm not going to speculate on who will be playing there. Numerous prospects could be there in five years (Broll, Ross, et cetera).

The D is strange, the only real guarantee is Phaneuf. And maybe Gardiner and Rielly, but hard to tell. I don't think it'll actually turn out the way I have it listed, too much offence and not enough defence. But I can't really guess how it'll go with what we currently have.

Luongo will probably be in Toronto or Florida by the start of the season.
