I would be tempted to like Collberg-Galchenyuk-Gallagher, but that seems to lack physicalness... It could be a great PP wave though

I really think Galchenyuk and Collberg, should they reach their potential could be dynamite together. Convinced of it.

Bournival would be great on the third line since he would be a great forechecker and a hard worker.

Putting Bournival on the 4th would be a waste. We went through that for the last several years where we had a mish-mash of various players on the 4th line. The Habs need a traditional 4th line. Players who can play and not hurt the team for 5-6 minutes per game but also be ready to drop the gloves and create some energy if needed.

I dont see Bournival being up to that task. The 4th line needs Staubitz, White, Moen, Konopka, Prust for example.

I am hoping and praying that with Therrien as head coach, the days of a soft "oh by the way you are on the 4th line tonight" strategy is dead and buried.

No love for Kristo????

Dark horses for the top-9

Prybil, Nattienen, Palushaj, Goeffrion, MacMilan, Quailer and Veil.

Avtsyn and Holland being a reach.

2013/2014:

Line 1:
Gallagher - Plekanec - Cole

Cole and Plekanec are proven vets along with a rookie Gallagher who I think will have a great AHL season in 2012/2013.

Line 2:
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Leblanc

Existing Pacioretty/Desharnais chemistry with hopefully a more developed/AHL seasoned Leblanc

Line 3:
Eller - Galchenyuk - Gionta

Galchenyuk makes the team out of camp after dominating the OHL in 2012/2013. Eller and Galchenyuk will likely have instant chemistry...just a hunch.

Too many 5'8" and under but Gionta will probably not be retained after 2014. Kristo will probably replace him.

Me too. Don't get me wrong. I WANT Galchenyuk and Collberg together! What I'm saying is adding Gallagher to that line would not be ideal

Very much doubt that Gallagher ever plays first line in the NHL. Not sure why most seem so high on him.

Fun little exercise.

Of course you have to imply that the prospects will develop to a certain level... So I'll take a few seconds to say how I see the following prospects developing in this scenario (3-4 years away or smtg).

Galchenyuk: In time, I think he'll become the 1st line center for habs. Not convinced he'll be the prototypical 1st liner scoring a ton of points, but I still think he will rank slightly higher on our depth chart than Pleks, Eller and DD.

Collberg: Good offensive player. At this point in his career, he should be a rookie or 2nd year NHL player. He may be starting to come into his own, but will not have reached his top potential yet.

Erik Cole: I think by the time this scenario happens, Cole will either have left or his play won't be as effective as it is today. I still think that he will be a fine top 6/9 option.

Gallagher: Unlike some of you, I'm not sold on his NHL potential yet. So I leave him off this prediction.

Kristo: Seems to have a skillset like Collberg. Could push for NHL time or already be established... who knows.

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - UFA
Leblanc - Plekanec - Cole
Desharnais - Eller - Collberg
Bournival - White - Schultz (tons of options for this line of course)

Perhaps Geoffrion finds his role and slots in there somewhere...

Subban - Gorges
Emelin - Markov
Beaulieu - Tinordi
7th: Ellis/Diaz

Lots of schuffling is possible here. It's actually unlikely that Diaz would be 7th dman. IMO he either keeps on improving and finds a spot in the regular formation before 3-4 years or leaves the organization. I leave him here though because I think there is a possibility he will still be in the mix in a few years.

Price
whoever

EDIT: What is really interesting with this lineup though is that IMO, Hamilton will be loaded by that time. There should be a lot of players knocking on the door to the NHL.

D: Thrower, Dietz, Didier, Bennett, Nash (maybe...)
HM: Pateryn, Nygren

FWDs: Bozon, Kristo, Gallagher, Holland, Quailer, Naatinen, McMillan
HM: Avtsyn, Pribyl, Dumont

And of course additional prospects from future drafts and such.

A lot of people here forgot to mention David Desharnais. I think he deserve a place in the top 2 line.

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher (Dynamic and Hard working line)
Eller - Desharnais - Cole (Creative line)
Leblanc - Bournival - Colberg (Hardworking line, with a good overall offense potential)
White - Dumont - Quailer/Schultz (Hard working guys and toughness)

Subban - Gorges (Vets and leaders)
Emelin - Beaulieu ( Offensive and tough pair)
Tinordi - Ellis (Shutdown specialist)

Price

Max Pacioretty 'A' - Alex Galchenyuk - Brendan Gallagher

Louis LeBlanc - Tomas Plekanec 'A' - Sebastian Collberg

Tim Bozon - Lars Eller - (big body prospect)

(Big Body Prospect) - Michael Bournival - Ryan White

Josh Gorges 'C' - P.K. Subban

Nathan Beaulieu - Jared Tinordi

Dalton Thrower - Morgan Ellis

Carey Price

Joe Blow
If this is the lineup in 2 to 5 years from now, Geoff Molson should fire Bergevin as this means he will sit on his ass and won't do any trade.

In two years we might be good too.

Pacioretty - Galchenkuk - Cole
Eller - Plekanec - Collberg
Gionta - Desharnais - Moen
Bournival - White - Engqvist

Markov - Subban
Gorges - Beaulieu
Tinordi - Emelin

Price
(anyone)

I know it's probably way off but it's a bit of a hybrid between the future and now. Cole could still be good, Markov could come back at 100%, and we could see some newly drafted guys pushing up in the rankings, like Collberg.

Chances that this is the lineup in 2-5 years are very slim. Some of these guys will bust , others will be traded , UFAs will be signed ect ect ect

Not to mention the landscape of the prospect pool may constantly change as well. Let's say we suck again this year and land McKinnon and draft early in every rounds this is going to change the whole dynamic again. Thats just an exemple but you get my drift

Ah yes! The annual ''lets put every prospect we just drafted in the lineup, as if they would all reach their potential!''

While Galchenyuk is a sure fire NHLer and should be a first or second line center in 3-4 years its not very realistic to assume Thrower, Bozon and Collberg are all going to be in the lineup then. The OP throws away Desharnais to make place for Collberg but theres no telling he's even going to be better. 60+ point players don't grow on trees.

Pacioretty-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
Desharnais-Plekanec(A)-Collberg
Kristo-Eller-Leblanc
Moen(A)-Bournival-White

Tinordi-Subban
Beaulieu-Ellis
Emelin-Gorges(C)

Price

This is of course looking at:
- 3 to 4 years down the road, post-Gionta/Markov/Cole era
- not taking future trades/FAs/drafts into account, because I don't have a crystal ball

I'll play. In 5 years, with the players with have in the system

Collberg-Galchenyuk-Pacioretty
XXXXXX-Eller-XXXXXX
XXXXXX-Plekanec-XXXXXX
White-Bournival-YYYYYY

Tinordi-Subban
Beaulieu-Gorges
Emelin-Thrower
Ellis

Price
Does not matter

XXXXX = LeBlanc, Kristo, Bozon, Gallagher, or Vail
YYYYY= Though guy

I think that we will suck again next season, so the XXXXX players will have a lot of competition from the nice 2013 draftees that we will get.

And Gallagher, Kristo, et al. ? Injuries, busts, surprises, trades, retirements, etc?

Don't make predictions two days after the draft.
