- Sidney Crosby

- Steven Stamkos

- Corey Perry

- Ryan Getzlaf

- Rick Nash

- Jonathon Drouin

- Matthew Barzal (if he even makes the NHL)

- Tyler Benson (if he even makes the NHL, 1st overall in 2013 WHL draft)

- Hunter Shinkaruk

- Sean Monahan

- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

- Jordan Eberle

- Taylor Hall

- Jeff Skinner

- Brett Connolly (4th line role and if he lives up to draft expectations)

- Brayden Schenn (4th line role)

- Sean Couturier (4th line role)

- Adam Henrique (Patirce Bergeron/Brendan Morrow type role)

- Curtis Lazar (Longshot)

- Jamie Benn

- Brandon Sutter (Longshot)

- Joe Thornton (Longshot because of age)

- Patrick Marleau (Longshot because of age)

- Mark Jankowski (Longshot, but could beat the odds and become how Jay Feaster envisioned)

- Mark Mcneil (if he even makes the NHL)

- Boone Jenner

- Logan Couture

- Phil Di Guissepe

Defenceman (no particular order):

- PK Subban

- Kris Letang

- Aaron Ekblad

- Sean Day (if he even makes the NHL)

- Ryan Murray

- Ryan Murphy

- Drew Doughty

- Justin Schultz

- Brent Burns

- Shea Weber

- Cody Franson-

- Michael Del Zotto

- Karl Alzner

- Tyler Myers

- Erik Gudbranson

- Jared Cowen

- Chris Tanev (yes im serious, don't laugh)

- Dan Hamhuis (probably too old)

- Kevin Bieksa (probably too old)

- Jay Bouwmeester

- Morgan Rielly

- Dougie Hamilton

- Matthew Dumba

- Griffin Reinhart

- Slater Koekkoek

- Alex Pietrangelo

- Ryan Poulock

- Shea Theodore

- Ryan Ellis

- Adam Morrissey

- Brandon Gormley

- Dylan McIlrath

- Derrick Pouliot

- Tyler Wotherspoon

- Scott Harrington

Goalies (No Order):

Carey Price

Craig Anderson

Malcolm Subban

Mark Visentin

Marc Andre Fleury (If he starts playing better in the playoffs for once)

Roberto Luongo (Longshot because he will be 39 years old)

Devan Dubnyk

Cam Ward

Braden Holtby

Brian Elliot

Payton Lee (Longshot, needs to make the NHL first, vancouver giants goalie)

Scott Wedgewood

Laurent Brossoit

Predicted Lineups:

Stamkos - Crosby - Mcdavid

Drouin - Tavares - Mackinnon

Hall - Nugent Hopkins - Toews

Kane - Seguin - Benson


Subban - Letang

Ekblad - Murray

Schultz - Pietrangelo





As you can see here, you will have to have many natural centres moved to the wing (Stamkos, McDavid, Toews, Mackinnon, Seguin) because there will be no choice.

What are your guys Canada 2018 Projected Lineups?

LOL wait you put Justin Schultz on your projected Olympic team?

OK I know he was a talked about UFA but my goodness.

And McDavid, a player yet to be drafted and who will only have 2 years NHL experience, over Claude Giroux in his prime?

No Shea Weber?

my goodness gracious!
