I'm turning this thread into a contest.

...whoever puts together the best 23-man roster that fits under the 2011/2012 salary cap (no impending UFA's/RFA's that are cheap now, i.e. Erik Karlsson at 1.3mil) wins.

:lol:

You just had to put together line combos for this thread, even though it has nothing to do with it.

I would choose a healthy Crosby over anyone, but as it stands now, I'd take Stamkos.

I bet that team would win a bunch of President's trophies.

lol, come on. lot of size on that team. 4th line of lucic-getzlaf-perry is big and mean. all the wingers, aside from giroux, are big (malkin's the next smallest at 6-3 205). weber, suter, doughty, keith and even letang are all gritty on defense too.

I know its fun to imagine a team full of superstars, but can you imagine the egos in that dressing room?

I'm really not thinking into it that much. Just picking the best players under 30.

MacIntyre - Crosby - Godard

Fritz - Konopka - Parros

Gillies - Haley - Orr

Hordichuk - Westgarth - Ivanans

Lidstrom - Erskine

Brookbank - Carkner

Murray - Scott

Quick

Emery

Didn't include the salary cap numbers (oops!) but I'm pretty sure this will pass the cap.

thanks...i tried to contact Bob Mackenzie to get the idea circulating....but...i failed.

i think it would be a great new twist and give the game some life.

i think it'd be sweet in baseball and basketball too...though, there's nothing that could make the two-hand touch pro-bowl interesting.
