That's just not realistic considering their competition.

They would be effective with whichever weak link player you want to throw with them if they are sheltered more but that's going to come at the expense of someone else like Galiardi-Jumbo-Burns.
Williams, Kopitar, and Brown, in total, make what, 14 million? That is only a little more than Marleau and Couture considering Couture's newest contract. Just as a reference.
