I haven't played it out, but my instinct is that Team #3 would have a very solid group of forwards, be a bit thin and inexperienced on defence and have mediocre goaltending.

By "spreading the wealth" (i.e., taking full NHL lines and bringing guys like Marchand, Dupuis and Kunitz into play), we could probably field 4-5 pretty good teams, but perhaps none would be strong medal favorities.
Team 1

Kane Crosby Neal
Nash Spezza Eberle
Marleau Couture Iginla
Ladd J. Staal Kunitz
Lecavalier

M. Staal Pietrangelo

Team 2

Benn Stamkos St. Louis
Skinner E. Staal Seguin
Sharp Toews M. Richards
