I'm not sure who I'd drop from the list to make it 10...probably Tavares or Staal, though you've got to think that both of those guys have a 90% + chance of being there.
If Tavares continues in his progress and his next season is even better than the last one, he is as much lock as Stamkos. Rick Nash is a lock for me. Eric Staal is a little bit behind him.

My locks: Crosby, Stamkos, Toews, Giroux, Tavares, Bergeron, Nash - Keith, Weber, Doughty - Luongo

Very, very close to make it: St.Louis, E.Staal, Getzlaf - Subban, Pietrangelo, Letang - Crawford. So that leaves 7 spots. 4 forwards, 2 D-men and one goaltender. In my opinion, those 7 players could be: Sharp, Richards, Carter, Neal - Bouwmeester, Hamhuis - Price / Elliott / Smith / Holtby. Hell, put even Bernier there, if he really steps up.

Tavares - Crosby - Nash
Stamkos - Toews - St.Louis
E.Staal - Getzlaf - Giroux
Richards - Bergeron - Carter

Letang - Weber
Keith - Subban
Pietrangelo - Doughty
