Datsyuk
Zetterberg
Flip
Brunner
Mule
Bab's flavor of the month

Our bottom 6 forwards are more like a bottom 12

We've got 1 top 2 dman in Kronwall (but good lord does he need a defensive oriented partner)
arguably 4 guys that can fit on a 2nd pairing:

White
Ericsson
Smith
Quincey (possibly not a good system fit on this team but I'm willing to give him more time)

And any one of Kindl, Huskins, or Colaalallaclaclcocovivo can be a #6 guy.
As far as I'm concerned Big E is the only D-man on this team that resembles a top paring D. I'm more worried about the lack of a true scorer on Pavs wing than another top pairing caliber D-man. When the team is healthy, the bottom 6 is fully capable of being strong as long as Dan Cleary is exiled.
