All-Minnesota NHL Team

I was bored and sick of looking at "Fire Yeo" and "Take the C from Koivu" threads so I cooked up an all-Minnesota team. I think I've seen this done on here before but it's always fun to look at how many good young players we are producing in this state. I know it's completely hypothetical and is never going to happen but this is a message board, so why not?

Forwards-

Zach Parise-David Backes-T.J. Oshie
Peter Mueller-Derek Stepan-Blake Wheeler
Matt Cullen-Jordan Schroeder-Kyle Okposo
Ryan Carter-Matt Hendricks-Jim O'Brien

Extra- Jamie Langenbrunner

The real strength is the defense, you've got 6 guys who play top pairing minutes for their current teams.

Ryan McDonagh-Dustin Byfuglien
Paul Martin-Erik Johnson
Alex Goligoski-Justin Faulk

Extras: Tom Gilbert, Nick Leddy, Matt Niskanen

Goaltending would be the weakness, not a single NHL regular from the state but I think Stalock, Lee and/or Eric Hartzell of Quinnipiac could break through soon. For now I would go with-

Alex Stalock
Mike Lee
Jeff Frazee

Anyone I'm forgetting/any changes you guys would make?
