    Carey Price is a legitimate superstar, and P.K. Subban and Pacioretty aren't exactly far off.

    ...Andrei Markov used to be one, does that count?

    Also this Galchenyuk kid looks like he might be o.k. one day.

    I think the opening poster had more of the forward corps in line. I think what is more important is CENTER DEPTH. And oftentimes, there's a 1 or 2 "two-way" centers in there, and some grinder like Max Talbot or Dave Bolland goes berserk in the playoffs and play way above their heads.

    For the D corps, if you can't field three competent pairings, then you are NOT winning the Cup, ever.
