Here they are along with their immediate NHL totals from the following year.

Is this absolutely non-scientific? Of course, since they were inserted into NHL line-ups with experienced veterans. But for the sake of curiosity, I did it anyway.

Réjean Beauchemin, Winnipeg, MB. - N/A
Jeff Glass, Cochrane, AB. - N/A

Defensemen
Cam Barker, Winnipeg, MB - 1 GP 0 0 0
*Shawn Belle, Edmonton, AB - N/A
*Braydon Coburn, Shaunavon, SK - 9 GP 0 1 1
*Dion Phaneuf, Edmonton, AB - 82 GP 20 29 49
*Brent Seabrook, Tsawwassen, BC - 69 GP 5 27 32
Danny Syvret, Millgrove, ON - 10 GP 0 0 0
Shea Weber, Sicamous, BC - 28 GP 2 8 10

Forwards
*Patrice Bergeron, Ancienne-Lorette, QC - 81 GP 31 42 73
Jeff Carter, London, ON - 81 GP 23 19 42
Jeremy Colliton, Blackie, AB 19 GP 1 1 2
Sidney Crosby, Halifax, NS 81 GP 39 63 102
Nigel Dawes, Winnipeg, MB N/A
Stephen Dixon, Halifax, NS N/A
Colin Fraser, Surrey, BC N/A

Andrew Ladd, Maple Ridge, BC - 29 GP 6 5 11
Clarke MacArthur, Lloydminster, AB N/A
Corey Perry, Peterborough, ON - 56 GP 13 12 25
Michael Richards, Kenora, ON - 79 GP 11 23 34
Anthony Stewart, Scarborough, ON - 10 GP 2 1 3

* Sophmore year in the NHL

-Not a very competitive looking team, given the amount of NHL inexperience. Could they win -A- game? With some NHL seasoning? I'd still say maybe.
Maybe if it turned into a non-contact league. Some NHL seasoning just translates to injuries, younger players get sheltered for a reason. On actual NHL teams the likes of RNH, Hall, etc. can get sheltered from the grinders. There would be nobody to shelter them when that line came on.
