As for your lineup, it may lack star power but that is a playoff caliber team and has the depth to have success there. Sure, it isn't sexy and doesn't have the sexy names but the Cup is sexier anyway. lol
For god's sake, where do you even get the idea that Kreider should be a center? He played as a LW every time I watched him in college, he played as a LW at the WJC, he's played as a LW in the NHL. I lurk quite a bit in the Rangers forum and I've never seen as much as a hint that Kreider ever has or ever will play center.

Yeah, my lineup is a playoff team and it is quite a bit younger, but it looks significantly worse than any Cup-winning lineup in recent memory except maybe Carolina, and face it, it was freakin' Carolina.
