My basic mindset was to build a team that has good possession stats. My whole forward corps is basically good along the boards, the worst of which are Skinner & Stamkos, who dont really need to be because their skills are ridiculous. Kovalchuk, Stamkos, and Skinner are the snipers are each line, though Lucic & Patches can both score, as can Backes & Callahan, though they are more of the workers. The third line should be coached to be a sheltered scoring line, with Clutterbuck playing along the boards most of the time. However, if they are not sheltered, they are still quite defensively sound. The fourth line is a shutdown line, and is really young so will continue to grow. If there are injuries to the bottom lines, Brown subs into the bottom line, Greening moves up to the third. If there are injuries to any of the top two lines, Saad subs into the third line, and Skinner subs in for who's injured.
I built the D considering that on each line there should be a mover and a defender. I didnt want to pick offensive dmen that are liabilities, however, so abstained from Liles and those in his mould. Letang, Ekman-Larsson, and Enstrom are the movers, and Murray, Kronwall, and Weaver are the defenders. All present benefits--Enstrom has a good shot, Letang can move the puck really wall, and OEL is just a stud all around. Kronwall can throw big hits, Murray is good at shot blocking, and Weaver is great with his stick. Their strengths all complement each other. McNabb is a project and could be anything from a bottom pair to top pair defense, though he has already cemented himself on a bottom pairing. He subs in for injuries, and fills in on any role other than on the top line, which, if there is an injury, OEL will take, with McNabb filling into OEL's spot.
In goal, Luongo is the most consistent goalie in the league and will be playing at his high level for at least 3 more years, though I expect at least 5. If not, Holtby is a great option and has already proved to be a good up and comer.
