Hall and Eberle were both top 10 in NHL scoring during their healthiest seasons. RNH and Gagner, while being picked on in size, are two very good playmaking centers. Yakupov, when put on the right side and with good linemates, was only outscored by Ovechkin (beast mode) down the stretch. Perron is a very good complimentary player to that core who can skate, hit and score.

If that top six is healthy, I am not basing it on potential.
