Interesting question.

Foursomes to consider:
Edmonton: Hall, RNH, Yakupov, Eberle (3 1st overalls and a 76pt scorer in his sophomore year. Oldest player among them only 22 years old)

Washington: Ovechkin, Backstrom, Carlson, Alzner/Green (One player who has performed on Crosby/Malkin level and another who has performed at a notch below them. 2 top pairing defenseman)

New York Rangers: Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards, Rick Nash, Henrik Lundqvist (Beast top line and Vezina winner)

Tampa Bay: Steven Stamkos, Martin St.Louis, Vincent Lecavalier, Victor Hedman (1 player on their level, two top line players and a top pairing defenseman)

Vancouver: Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, Dan Hamhuis, Roberto Luongo/Corey Schneider (Back to back Art Ross winners, #1 D and #1 G)

Boston: Patrice Begeron, Tyler Seguin, Zdeno Chara, Tuukka Rask (1-2 centers, #1 D, #1 G)

LA: Anze Kopitar, Mike Richards, Drew Doughty, Jonathan Quick (1-2 centers, #1D, #1G)

Chicago: Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook (#1 RW, #1C, 1-2 D)

Anaheim: Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Bobby Ryan, Jonas Hiller (Top 3 forwards, #1 G)

Colorado: Matt Duchene, Ryan O'Reilly, Gabriel Landeskog, Erik Johnson (1-2 C, #1 RW, top pairing D)

..etc

I am in love with the Sidney Crosby + Evgeni Malkin duo, however it'd be hard to pass up the guaranteed to fill most of my prospective team's holes in one shot. I would definately take one of the above listed foursomes, just not entirely sure which. Likely LA, NYR, Chicago, EDM or WSH.
