So I think the answer is New York, LA, or Nashville, in any order
3-5 years is actually a pretty long time, especially in terms of projecting the careers of younger players. For example, if you had asked who would be the best goalie between Jonathan Bernier, Jonathan Quick and Corey Schneider 3-5 years ago, I'll bet almost everyone would have answered "Bernier will be better than Quick, and who the **** is Schneider?" Note that they're all roughly the same age too (Schneider and Quick are 26, Bernier is 24). Likewise, 3ish years ago Ryan Miller would have been seen as being WAY better than Pekka Rinne, and again they're roughly the same age (Miller is 32, Rinne 30).
