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.
Its pretty good but Ribeiro was explicit about having a boner for playing with a right handed sniper.

Maybe

Backstrom Ribeiro Ovechkin
Chimera Johansson Ward
Wolski Perreault Fehr
Hendricks Beagle Brouwer

Alzner Carlson
Laich Green (remember Laich is uber versatile and has not looked out of place playing D, lots of NHL forwards make the switch and are better for it, Burns and Byfuglien for instance. He might be that elusive #3 shutdown D we're looking for).
Hamrlik Orlov

He's a top 5 center in the league. Use him at center.
That's exactly what the rest of the league is gonna expect. Throw em a curveball.
