LOCK: No one

BUBBLE: All the above and maybe throw in Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes and the legendary Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils.

Marc-âdouard VlasicMontreal, Que.San Jose Sharks (NHL)

* Shea WeberSicamous, B.C.Nashville Predators (NHL)

LOCKS: Weber, Subban, Keith, Doughty, Seabrook

BUBBLE: Pietrangelo and Letang have the inside track and after that there are all kinds of factors and formulae that can see a player move in or out. For instance, if the D is young, look for Dan Boyle to get a long look for veteran presence. If management thinks they're too offensive, a steady influence such as Karl Alzner could be a fit.
