What's your former-Hab lineup?

Seeing some former Habs in the playoffs got me thinking about what the best lineup of still active former Habs would be. Unlike my usual schtick I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, just cool to see guys like Yannick Weber and Joe Morrow etc kicking around and try to make up a lineup. The goaltending is bad and the forwards aren't very good but the defence would be really solid. I'll ignore McDonagh since he never played a game for the Habs.

 

Andrighetto-Eller-Radulov

Cammalleri-Plekanec-DSP

Vanek-Desharnais-Weise

A. Kostitsyn-Moore-Perezhogin

 

Sergachev-Subban

Markov-Pateryn

Emelin-Y.Weber

 

Scrivens - Montoya?

WOW, something to think about. I'll get back to you later. :) . Although  you could have swapped out  Scrivens for Dubyniyck. (SP?).

In terms of still active in the the playoffs, this is the best I could do with players who were once a part of the Habs organization at some point

It was impossible to have a complete line-up and some players have to be used out of position based on what I think could work

Sergachev - Eller - Vanek
Andrighetto - Plekanec - Smith-Pelly
Morrow - Moore - Mitchell

Hainsey - Subban
Beauchemin - Barberio
Emelin - Weber

Devan Dubnyk
Peter Budaj

^^^^  the sad part is that that defense may be better than ours right now when healthy (especially if you include McDonaugh)...  

McDonaugh - Subban
Beachemin - Pateryn
Emelin - Barberio
Y.Weber

 

the forwards obviously aren't complete but arent too far off our roster minus a few top line wingers. :(

With players once part of our organization (I won't count Dubnyk though) who are still actively playing hockey, this is who I can remember off the top of my head:

 

Andrighetto-Eller-Radulov

Cammalleri-Plekanec-Vanek

Pouliot-Desharnais-Weise

Sekac-Mitchell-Kassian

Gionta

 

McDonagh-Subban

Markov-Sergachev

Beaulieu-Pateryn

Barberio

 

Halak-Condon

 

The forwards are a little lacking in depth and past their prime, and there are shockingly few top-tier centers! But the D is deep, and on top of the guys I listed, you could throw in Emelin, Y. Weber, Beauchemin, Hainsey, Diaz, etc. as depth players, many of whom would still be better than half our current D corps. Sad how many defencemen we've given away in favor of lesser ones. Depth-wise, there's also DSP, Ryan White, Dom Moore, Pyatt, etc. for the 4th line if you chose to go in another direction than what I did.
