Oh this is no playoffs at all. I misunderstood.

I thought this was just last year and I'm like "where's Perry??"

I agree.

Jamie Benn, Nikolai Kulemin, Cal Clutterbuck, and Gabriel Landeskog are all good physical 2-way forwards.

This team has 10 forwards who play on their respective team's top line (Hall, Tavares, Eberle, RNH, Landeskog, Kane, Skinner, Benn, Moulson, Little).

Their offensive would be absolutely unstoppable and the defense-core is among the best in the league.

If defensive forwards are the issue, replacing Bryan Little with Ryan O'Rielly is always an option too.

Goaltending would be the weakness but with a little luck they'd be solid contenders for the cup.
Not sure if you're serious?

I had O'Rielly in there, until I realized he played all 6 games in the Sharks-Avs series in 2009-2010.

Anyways, thanks, for all of your inputs guys.

I also apologize if I leave out anybody.

Very good offense but would get killed by any team with a really good forecheck and goalie. So I can't see them making it past the 1st or 2nd round. They would get especially killed in the western conference.

How do you figure? There's literally no team in the league that could handle that offense. How do you line match when the other team has 3 legit 1st lines?

Totally. He's not as good of a defender but he's better at handling the puck so he defends less often.
