If Granlund can handle 2nd line C, Coyle, Larsson, Zucker, Bulmer AND Phillips all end up playing this year or next year and show they belong in the top-9...
That leaves us with Koivu, Granlund, Brodziak, Cullen (if he's still around), Konopka and maybe Phillips as C's. Heater, Seto, Bouchard, Parise, Coyle, Larsson, Zucker and Bulmer as wingers.
That's 4-6 C's, 3 of which should be top-6 if they hit their ceilings, and anywhere from 5-8 guys who belong in the top-9, most of which can be top-6.
Is this a realistic outcome? Absolutely not. Is it possible? For sure. That's going to leave us with at least one line that really shouldn't be playing the traditional checking role.
Edit: totally forgot about Clutterbuck, who I think we all agree belongs on the 3rd line, and could play wing opposite Seto on a 3rd line with a pass-first center...
