Set aside our getting Malkin
Kreider / Nash are complementary bookends

to maximize speed, MILLER should C for Hags + Cally.

Stepan could be fallback for 1a C if he is not moved w/+ for upgrade C or D.

Although we have other possibilities (Yogan, good size, scoring track record) for 3LW, I could see ....

if Gabby is to be moved, and we are presently talking w/LA
what about something like

Gaborik + Eminger + two thirds from 2013
LW Tanner Pearson (he was last year's first for LA) +
D Alec Martinez (he's been chatted up here before) +
2013 2nd
2014 2nd

Martinez helps immediately w/overall D depth and puck movement, and Pearson, w/scoring track record (sniper in making?) was projected as not having a long wait.
Plus we upgrade the picks..
You make your posts so complicated for whatever reason. It's tough to follow your thought process.

Hagelin - Stepan - Nash
Kreider - Miller - Callahan
Yogan - St Croix- Fasth
Asham/Mash/XX - Lindberg - Powe/XX

Girardi - McD
McI - Staal
Stralman - DZ

Looks like a pretty solid line up in a couple of years.
The weakness I see is
- LW depth, Yogan may or may not pan out. Better suited for 4th line.
- RD, Girardi will be 30 years old, and we don't have any shooters on that blueline.

If Gaborik is traded, a stud young LW with some sandpaper and top RD prospect, with a laser shot, must be included.
