After completely messing up my first attempt and somewhat quickly fixing it with mixed results, I have come up with a team that I am quite happy with.

Cap Space Remaining: $283,788

Line 1: Ryan - Toews - Franzen
Line 2: Tanguay - Bergeron - Vrbata

Defense 1: Bieksa, Letang

Reserve: MacDonald

Goaltenders: Rinne, Lehner

2011: Larsson (1)
2010: Schwartz (1)
2009: Hedman (1), Lehner (2)
2008: Gardiner (1), Stepan (2)
2007: Sutter (1), Simmonds (2)

2005: Ryan (1), Letang (3)
2004: Franzen (3), Rinne (8)
2003: Brown (1), Bergeron (2)

1998: Tanguay (1)
1993: Prospal (3)
Undrafted: Weaver



The only players not signed for at least 2 seasons: Prospal, Stepan, Simmonds. Prospal's cap space can be used to re-sign Stepan and Simmonds. Ryan, Tanguay, Toews, Franzen, Hedman, Bieksa, Rinne are signed for 3 or more seasons. I really like my third line of Brown, Sutter and Simmonds. That will be a nasty line to play against. My defense has quite a bit of youth (Hedman, Gardiner, Larsson) but still quite good and will contribute a lot to the offense. My forwards, particularly the centers, are mostly very solid 2-way players so they should off set some of the inexperience on defense.
