Realizing, it's different than "untouchable," these are the guys I build around next season:

Forwards: Atkinson, Anderson, Dubois, Bjorkstrand, Nyquist, Jenner, Foudy*, Bemstrom, Stenland (It may be in Foudy's best interests and development to start the year in Cleveland). 

Defense: Jones, Werenski, Gavrakov, Peeke, Nutivaara, Kukan

Goalies: Elvis and/or Korpi (I don't mind starting next year with both if I don't get a trade offer I like by the time training camp opens)

That leaves seven or eight roster spots unless we make trades between now and September 1. I realize that there are players that aren't going anywhere because of their contracts (Wennberg, Foligno, Nash, Murray) and others that could be traded or may make contributions as well next year (Savard, Texier, Robinson Harrington and Milano). 

Assuming key players can bounce back from injury this season, that remains a formidable team.
