I think that top 6 has enough grit to work a forecheck, particularly with that bruising 3rd line to do the heavy lifting. If for some reason that doesn't work, you could shuffle in Brouwer and Wilson to the top 6 and roll with three balanced lines, something like this.

Wilson-Johansson-Ovechkin
Galiev-Laich-Forsberg

Either way, I'm happy with that top 9. And if Galiev or Wilson doesn't work out, we can hopefully keep Chimera around to fill their spot, or maybe Wolski or Perrault if one of them caches fire this year.
We'll see if Galievs playoffs were a fluke, but it seems the ambition is there to get to the NHL.
