The Sens would be a good bet, but this question is contingent on a lot of things with how the CBA would have turned out. For example, if we get the same CBA, just without the lockout, we probably just shift things forward in time a bit. The Canes would still have gotten the various players who popped free from the cap and allowed them to become one of the best teams in the league, while guys like Ron Francis don't necessarily retire, and things don't change much from how 2006 turned out.
If we're playing under pre lockout rules, things are different.
*Bondra may have come back for that season too. TD acquisition in 04.
One of my favourite teams I've ever watched. Bondra was a lot of fun to watch.. I remember that beauty PP that had Alfie playing the point on one unit and Bondra on the point for the 2nd unit. Havlat and Hossa were so much fun to watch. And of course, Chara. I couldn't believe my eyes when they chose to keep Redden over Chara.
