After the changes imo:

Ovechkin-Laich-Wolski
Backstrom-Ribeiro-Chimera
Fehr-Johansson-Beagle
Ward-Perreault-Hendricks


Obviously this will never happen because Backstrom and Ovechkin on the same line is just too much of a threat to split up.
Chimera literally has bricks for hands and should not be on either of the top 2 lines. As a fill in, maybe, but 20 goals was the exception, not the norm. Not really any reason to think he wont return to 10 or so goal form. Plus he is good for what he is, slot him on the third line and put someone that actually has some goal scoring talent in a scoring role.

With our lack of playmaking centers for quite some time, I don't even know what I would say if they actually slotted either backstrom or ribero at wing
