If we get a good #4 C that can carry the puck (Moore? Even Gomez?) and Armstrong returns to form, that's actually a pretty good bottom 6. Gomez in a limited role might not be THAT bad assuming we won't send him to the minors. We can't give him PP time and high even strength minutes though.

Max Pacioretty - Tomas Plekanec - Brian Gionta
Rene Bourque - David Desharnais - Erik Cole
Travis Moen - Lars Eller - Colby Armstrong
Brandon Prust - Scott Gomez - Ryan White
This is pretty much the "best" I could put together as well. Remember, though, that Nokes is in there with Gomez for 4th line centre, as he is signed to a 1-way.

I don't like leaving Leblanc out of the lineup, though, and don't like the idea of putting him into some kind of 4th line centre carousel with Gomez and Nokes, nor some revolving bottom line RW door with Armstrong and White. I'd personally find Gionta a new home (as well as Gomez, finally erasing the entire great $20 million mistake) and put Louis in there, but hey.

edit: Hell, I'll go full retard and say that we might as well put the young 1st round pedigree together, and the best vets together, and ice:

MaxPac - Eller - Leblanc
Bourque - Plekanec - Cole
Moen - DD - Armstrong
Prust - Nokes - White
