As any roster - I expect almost a completely different roster come 2018:
James Van Riemsdyk - Nazem Kadri - Phil Kessel
Joffrey Lupul - xxx - xxx
xxx - Tyler Bozak - Nikolai Kulemin
xxx - xxx -xxx
Dion Phaneuf - xxx
Jake Gardiner - xxx
xxx - xxx
All xxx's filled with FA's/prospects.
Then fill the spots in
I think Stuart Percy will crack the line-up, and Morgan Rielly should be considered a lock in 5 years as well.. Let me try...
James Van Riemsdyk (28) - FA - Phil Kessel (30)
Joffrey Lupul(A) (34) - Nazem Kadri (27) - FA
Tyler Biggs (24) - Joe Colborne (28) - Nikolai Kulemin (31)
Jerry D'Amigo (27) - Jay McClement(A) (35) - Leo Komarov (31)
Dion Phaneuf(C) (33) - Morgan Rielly (24)
Jake Gardiner (27) - Stuart Percy (24)
Matt Finn (24) - Petter Granberg (26)
I don't know... It's the best guess (if we keep Roy next season). McNally, Tommerness, Andersson are all defenders that could be in the top-6 by this time if we lost any one of Tanev, Hamhuis, or Bieksa.
