My (and your) dream Habs lineup of the future...

We've all been quite frustrated with the way Michel Therrien and Marc Bergevin have been handling this team. From Bergevin's questionable signings and trades to Therrien's ludicrous player management and roster choices, we've seen some pretty bleak stuff.


I (and the nice man in the white labcoat that checks on me in my cell every once in a while) think it's time to get away from all the doom and gloom and take a 'mental vacation.' I propose that we draw up our dream Habs lineup of the future. The rules of the game should be chosen by each individual poster - it's your vacation, after all - but the main point is to create a theoretical lineup that makes you happy and seems to herald long-term success (basically the opposite of the current lineup).

For my lineup, I chose to only include players that are currently within the Habs' system, and I allowed myself to ditch any players I didn't want with no penalty. I'm also assuming that all the young players in the roster have developed to their (realistic) potential. Also, screw the salary cap. So, here it is:

Offense:

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher (pure awesome)

De La Rose - Eller - Collberg (awesome Euro super-skilled shut down line)

Hudon - Bournival - McCarron (dynamic scoring and energy line)

Prust - White - Leblanc (dependable, defensively-solid fourth line)

---------------------------------------------------

Defense:

Beaulieu - Subban (nothing short of fearsome)

Tinordi - Gorges (solid shutdown pairing to eat up tough minutes and d-zone starts)

Emelin - Nygren (balanced third paring with combination of grit, offense, and defense)

---------------------------------------------------


PP1:


Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Subban - Beaulieu

PP2:
Hudon - Eller - Collberg
Nygren - Emelin

---------------------------------------------------

PK1:

Eller - Pacioretty
Tinordi - Subban

PK2:

De La Rose - Collberg
Emelin - Gorges

Magnificent, isn't it? Let's see yours in the comments below! Have a nice vacation!
