I would not want to pick this team. I wonder how much they will try to bring in players that fit roles (like Bergeron face/offs last time) and guys that could PK and be more of a traditional checking line. If they do this then it could hurt Hall/Eberle's chances.

Also another factor is the chemistry, if they're playing together and looking good, there's a better chance. Like Keith/Seabrook, Perry/Getzlaf, Sharks guys last time.

Forwards
Locks (if healthy): Crosby, Tavares, Stamkos, Toews, Nash (not sure why they love him so much, he wouldn't be a lock for me)
Most Likely: Giroux, Bergeron

After that it's a crap shoot and will depend on 1) who is playing well 2) if they want the chemistry 3) if they want players to have specific roles

6 more spots
Front runners: Staal, St. Louis, Sharp (versatile and a solid player), Getzlaf, Perry
Decent chance: spezza, neal, benn, hall, marleau, thorton, courture
possibility: skinner, seguin, Duchesne, eberle, richards, lucic, iginla

Defense
Locks: Weber, Keith
Most Likely: Pietrangelo, Doughty

Other 3 spots
Front runners: Subban, Letang, seabrook
decent chance: Green and marc staal,
possibilty: hamhuis, yandle, boumeester, myers, boyle

Goalies (ouch, crap shoot)
Most Likely: Price (even though he's subpar)

Front runners: ward, fleury, crawford, loungo, smith
possibility: schneider, dubnyk, brodeur

I'd say it will end up
Nash/Crosby/Giroux
Stamkos/Tavares/St. Louis
Sharp/Toews/Staal
Getzlaf/Bergeron/Perry
Hall
Weber/Doughty
Keith/Seabrook
Pietrangelo/Subban
Letang
Price/Fleury/Smith

If I was picking it would be
Stamkos/Crosby/St. Louis
Hall/Tavares/Giroux
Bergeron/Toews/Sharp (shutdown line, D zone faceoffs)
Nash/Couture/Perry
Getzlaf
Weber/Pietrangelo
Letang/Subban
Keith/Green
m. staal if healthy or seabrook
Loungo/Ward/Price

-goalies specifically i'd go with who is playing well since they're so close
