I would say the fairly obvious ones are Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson. Beyond that it's hard to say, though I would likely include Robin Lehner in that group.

Cowen: If he can stay healthy I would include him. Even in his rookie season he showed a bit of offensive ability, and his defence was top notch. A huge defenceman with good skating and the ability to read the game is invaluable.

Turris: If he can build on last season and put up a similar or better season this year I would put him in the untouchables (as long as he wants to play here). He's got the talent, and if he's happy in Ottawa it will show. Could be our future #1 down the middle.

Silfverberg: If he can bring over what he's shown in the SEL it will be a no brainer. He looked decent in the playoff stint last year, but he was tired and playing on short notice. High expectations playing on the top line. If he doesn't disappoint I'd say he's near untouchable.
