You could add Niklas Kronwall to that crop as well, he has been one of the best defenseman in WCH this past weeks and was named best defenseman in AHL this season. He is a lock in Detroit when NHL starts up.

Yeah, this is probably going to be the deepest defence in the league next year. With Erhoff starting to come out, its one tough bunch.

Anaheim's pretty deep at center and right wing:

Center-Fedorov, Rucchin, Getlzaf, Pahlsson, Konopka, Brent

Right Wing-Sykora, Lupul, Getzlaf(can do both), Niedermayer, Perry

I'd say:

LW: Vancouver C: Detroit RW: Ottaw
Naslund Lang Hossa
Bertuzzi Datsuyk Alfredson
D. Sedin Zetterberg Havlat
Cooke Yzerman Smolinsky
Ruutu Draper Neil
May Hudler Eaves
King Franzen Bochenski

D: Ottawa G: New Jersey
Redden Brodeur
Chara Ahonen
Phillips Clemmensen
de Vries
Volchenkov
Meszaros
Pothier
Vauclair

Colorado is the best at center if you consider Forsberg on their team and not a FA/European player (Forsberg, Sakic, Tanguay, Damphousse, Gratton, Hendrickson, Hahl). Defense and goalie have a lot of competition.

Stars at center (natural centers):
Modano
Arnott
Turgeon
Barnes
Kapanen
Ott

Most of those guys should be with the Stars next time they suit up, with prospects being Yared Hagos and Gino Guyer.

And they had lots and lots of RWs for 03/04
Guerin
V. Bure
Lehtinen
DiMaio
Young
Oliver
Tjarnqvist
Downey

Young and Oliver will/are already gone. Bure may or may not stay. Notable prospects in that position being Loui Eriksson, Junior Lessard and Brandon Crombeen.

Anyone wanna give them a left winger for a right winger?

I think Ottawa is stacked on RW, and they have by far the most depth at that position.

Alfredsson (point per game player)
Hossa (point per game player)
Havlat (point per game player)
*Bondra (25-30 goal scorer)
Neil (good tough guy)

But no team can match the top 4.

The Sens are also pretty deep on defense:

Redden / Chara
Phillips / de Vries
Volchenkov / *Leschychyn
Pothier / Meszaros

* If they stay with the team.

I think Ottawa's talent and depth at RW is the best of any team at one perticular position.

That's called substraction by addition.

Well he played decent for the Blue Jackets last season. His +/- was among the best on the team. 27 points in 66 games. I think he can handle a 5th or 6th D-man position if some guys get injured.

Detroit IMO has one of the deepest center groups in the league. Top 3 or 5 with Lang, Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Draper.

At left wing we're more middle of the pack.
Shanahan, Holmstrom, Maltby and (sometimes) Whitney.
Right wing is by far our biggest weak point and has been for some number of years.
I for one would absolutely love to see the wings pick up a guy like Bondra as a FA until grigorenko is ready for 1st line duty since Kovalev will be too expensive to fit into our plans once there's a salary cap. If we can't afford to do that, then signing a grinder who can chip in 10-15 goals and play well defensively would be just fine. Would have been nice to bring Knuble back to detroit though...

I doubt that the Wings will be in the position to be asking themselves "which high-profile player can we add to our team?" The question will likely be, "which high-profile player(s) are we going to have to get rid of to get under the salary cap?"

Also the fact that most are throwing in their own team, when for the most part there are clearly better choices.

Not necessarily true. Wings payroll right now is about 56.6 mil.
Then consider the 24% rollback decreases that by oh, 13.584 million.
Say the cap is anywhere from 41 to 43 million The wings are left just BARELY over the cap and then we're only a little over the cap and we can be back under it by getting rid of a Dandeneault or Wooley.
Operating under a cap won't hurt the wings nearly as much as you think it would.

Madden is a UFA. minus UFA's and prospects its Gomez, Hrdina, Brylin, Rasmussen, Koizlov. (Yes, Parise is still a prospect)

Again, minus Niedermeyer who is a free agent, and Stevens who is likely finished (finally!). Without those players, Devils D looks thin even with prospects.

Seriously.

When the lockout eventually ends, we should have a thread or two "updating" the player movement that happened between the playoffs and lockout.
I had completely forgotten Lappy signed in Colorado until I was reminded earlier this week
