If everything goes according to what I want the Leafs to become, the lineup will look like this. Now, this is an extreme hypothetical, so when you look at this do so with a substantial amount of optimism.

Heading into free agency, Brian Burke lures both Ryan Getzlaf AND Corey Perry onto the Leafs. Assuming that these two guys are very good friends and will both sign in the same place. In Toronto exists familiarity, with both Brian Burke as GM and Randy Carlyle as head coach.

Also, assume that the rumoured deal consisting of Tyler Bozak and Nazem Kadri for Roberto Luongo is true, and the trigger is pulled on it when the lockout ends.

Since I had Bozak penciled in at third line centre and he is now gone, Burke signs Boyd Gordon to replace him. The ensuing lineup would be:

Lupul - Getzlaf - Kessel
vanRiemsdyk - Grabovski - Perry
Kulemin - Gordon - Frattin
Komarov - McClement - Brown

Gunnarsson - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Holzer
Rielly - Kostka

Luongo
Reimer

Predicted Production:
Lupul - 31/37/68
Getzlaf - 20/71/91
Kessel - 51/40/91

vanRiemsdyk - 24/27/51
Grabovski - 23/36/59
Perry - 37/32/69

Kulemin - 16/20/36
Gordon - 9/18/27
Frattin - 22/10/32

Komarov - 11/10/21
McClement - 4/10/14
Brown - 4/3/7

Gunnarsson - 4/17/21
Phaneuf - 16/36/52

Gardiner - 8/30/38
Holzer - 2/9/11

Rielly - 6/15/21
Kostka - 4/18/22

Luongo - 2.31 GAA / .923 SV%
Reimer - 2.55 GAA / .011 SV%

Goal Totals: 292

Too many ginos, not enough D? LOL
