Deepest Team At A Position

Excluding goalies which team do you think is the deepest at defense, center, left wing, and right wing. Ok for example, I think the Wings are probably deepest team concerning centers in the league with Lang, Zetterberg, Datysuk, Draper, Williams and Yzerman (All are natural centers). Deepest in this case means overall talent that can be spread through four lines at a given position. So lets here what you think. As of right now lets keep it to player's current ability or slightly above.

Montreal in centers.

Koivu- Incredible playmaker, clutch in the playoffs and leader
Ribeiro- Great stickhandling, vision
Bonk- Great 2 way player
Begin- Another very good young 2 way player.

I may be biased but I think Montreal is definately top 10 in centers.

That's my vote. There are a couple more fringe guys that should see some action (Hudler and Robinson played a couple games last year) next year Hudler, Franzen, and Robinson (If they are signed that is).

Minnesota has good depth at defense and center, problem is they don't use some centers as centers...

Pierre-Marc Bouchard
Mikko Koivu
Patrick O'Sullivan
Rickard Wallin
Adam Courchaine

Are the Wild rookies and I think Irmen has had time at that position.

And then Marc Choiunard, Brian Rolston, Wes Walz plus sometimes Richard Park is crazy...

And then Filip Kuba (top 3 defenseman), Andrei Zyuzin, Alex Henry, Willie Mitchell, Nick Schultz, Ray Giorux, Eric Reitz, Clayton Stoner, Ryan Stokes, AJ Thelen, Zybek Michalek, Jean-Michal Bolduc all have potential to be defensemen or already defensemen...

Sanderson is back with the Jackets. Rucinsky, Arvedson, and Keane were free agents as of July 1, 2004. I think Arvedson either retired from hockey or the NHL.

So it's more like

Naslund
Sedin
Cooke
May
Ruutu

The old adage "quantity does not equal quality" comes to mind.

Ottawa's right-wing is pretty solid:

Alfredsson
Hossa
Havlat
Bondra*
Varada
Neil

*Suggesting of course that Bondra is still with the organization when the league resumes.
