We would have top 5 goaltending, offense, and defense easily, and we have enough young players on that roster to keep us competitive for many years to come.
Aye. This is what I'm advocating as well. Assuming the lineup I posted above, we would easily boast one of the best purely talented rosters in the league. For some there is concern about retaining Kessel long-term but I do not see Gillis having issues doing so. Frankly, I see Kessel wanting to stick around. He would not be in the limelight by virtue of not being "the guy." The Sedins, Kesler and even Luongo would all take priority over him. Add to that a great opportunity to win a cup or two and why not?
