I was wasting some time playing around with cap geek and was interested in some thoughts about a line up like this. Left room under the cap in case it goes down and if the caphits are a little low.

/ Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) /
Alexander Semin ($6.000m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m)

Damian Brunner ($1.000m)
Danny Cleary ($2.800m) /
Justin Abdelkader ($1.500m)
/ Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Jan Mursak ($0.550m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)
Ryan Suter ($7.500m)

SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,483,712; BONUSES: $37,500
CAP SPACE (24-man roster): $2,716,288
The roster has 24 guys on it just in case Eaves won't be able to start the year.
Penner would add some size to the top 6 and is coming off a injuried filled year. Plus he put up 11 points in 20 games in the playoffs. He could also be the new Homer on the power play.
Semin is the fast right handed goal scorer for Datsyuk.
Brunner, Helm and Nyquist would be one of the fastest third lines around I would guess.
Abdelkader will be due a raise, he brings hitting and will fight on occassion to the bottom 6.
Suter nothing needs to be said.
Brookbank is coming of a great season with 14 points and + 11. He could either be the 6th or 7th guy. Let Kindl, Smith and him fight it out for that 5th-6th spot. He is also right handed and will drop the gloves when needed.
Biron should be good to play 20-25 games and win you 12-15 of them.
