F: R. Nash - I feel like we have more than enough skilled defensive players, and four good centers in Pav, Hank, Flip, Helm (not to mention Modano or Abdelkader), so I was really just looking for incredibly talented wingers that can put the puck in the net here. Came down to Rick Nash and Ovie for me. I went with Nash b/c there's a lot I don't like about Ovie's general attitude.
D: S. Weber - One of the best slapshots in the game. Big, physical, sound (although not spectacular) defensively, and young to boot. D. Doughty stirs a bit of a debate for me, because he's soo young, a little bit better defensively, and would really fit into our puck-possession style. But I'm sticking with Weber due to the physical assets he brings to the table. Duncan Keith is probably third.
G: R. Miller - Miller's not as young as these other two, but in a playoff series, if I could pick one player to have on my team, no question, it'd be Ryan Miller. Watched him very closely in the Olympics last year and fell in love with him. Lundqvist is a bit younger, but not enough to make up for the difference in skill. I thought a little bit about some of the even younger guys - Fleury, Ward, Price, Quick, Rinne, etc. - but I couldn't pull the trigger.
