Pittsburgh and Washington anyone? I'd rather have two of the league's top 5-10 players (including #1 and #2) than pretty much any collection of prospects.
However, if you want to include others who weren't contenders last year, I like the way LA and Edmonton look. I also think Florida is going to be scary in a few years (Gunbransson, Kulikov, Weiss, Frolik, Booth, Markstrom, Bjugstad, Ellerby, Robak, +Larsson/RNH/Courtier+whatever they get for Vokoun)
I think in four years Florida's going to be a good team. No doubt they're going to get another lottery pick this year to really help out with that. Hopefully their prospects pan out though, would really suck to go through all that and not come out any better.
You can't count out the Ducks. The top line is all young, and Fowler is already showing he was a steal at 12. Gardiner and Sbisa will be well adjusted by then, and we have a couple 2nd line players to come in and finish out the top 6 after Koivu/Selanne/Blake move on. Also have some good 2 way guys almost ready in Macenuer/McMillan/Bodie/Beleskey.
Kopitar-23 years old
Brown-25 years old
Bernier-22 years old
Clifford-19 years old
Doughty-20 years old
Johnson-23 years old
Loktionov-20 years old
Quick-24 years old
Schenn-19 years old
Simmonds-22 years old
And prospects we have...
Forbort, Moller, Hickey, Holloway, Teubert, Deslaurier, Jones, and Voynov.
Obviously not all of them will pan out...but were certainly looking good for awhile.
1. Pittsburgh - Crosby, Malkin, Staal & MAF
2. LA - Brown, Kopitar, Scheen, Doughty, Johnson, Quick & Bernier. The only team with 2+ high-end young forwards, defensemen and goalies
3. Washington - Varlamov, Green, Carlson, Ovechkin, Backstrom, & Fleischmann
Those are the clear cut top-3 if you ask me. Other teams have clear wholes like Boston (no young stud defensemen), Edmonton (no young stud goalie or defenseman), Philadelphia (aging defense with no stud young defenseman and no goaltending at all), Chicago (goalie), NYI (goalie), etc.
