I would insert couple of 1st round picks instead of "Trade"... we will have 5 more 1st round picks in those five years. Surely the 2013 and 2014 should be NHL ready by then.
Good point on the first round picks, however; I find too many people hold the belief that all of our prospects will pan out and be significant contributors. I also hope for a significant UFA signing though we have had no luck with those in the past there is the hope that someday our fate will change.

We don't know how Cowen will rebound from another season lost due to a significant injury. He is young but these injuries are piling up pretty quick in his career and their accumulation takes a toll. Ceci or another top D acquired through trade or UFA could be on the first pairing with Karlsson.
