This is totally what I want to see doubt it will happen though.
First off I'll try to fill in your question marks.
The russians will probably fill their forwards with Kozlov, but I can't think of another russian defenseman either.
I would think Sweden will have Ohlund on D for sure, and Holmstrom on forward. Also I don't think you can rule out Berglund on the Blues as an outside chance.
As for the Americans, Ryan Malone will be there almost guarenteed. And isn't Bobby Ryan american? If he is I think he'll get the nod as well. Also Komisarek should get a long look, especially because he's on the Leafs, same goes for Blake if he gets hot.
Now here's my full roster for Canada:
Nash - Crosby - Iginla
E. Staal - Getzlaf - Perry
Heatley - Thornton - St. Louis
Morrow - M. Richards - Doan
13th - Smyth - Because I think the 13th should be a guy with experience and a guy who can enter the lineup on either the 4th line or the 1st line with equal success.
Neidermayer - Pronger
Bouwmeester - Keith
Weber - Boyle
7th - Regehr - Same reason as above. I'd rather have someone step in who has been there before and who won't hurt defensively. That's why it isn't Phaneuf or Green.
Brodeur - Luongo - Fleury
So there it is. I tried to stay away from centres playing wing, as you can see I just have Staal in that position. The forward lines are made primarily due to chemistry among NHL teammates. As for the defense, the pairs are supposed to each have one skating puckhandler, and one checker with a heavy shot.
I like your thinking. I think Smyth definitely has a right to be there and maybe gets in there instead of Morrow on my list. For Stamkos, as much as he has played his heart out I'm not sure he gets the chance but I think it could be a toss up between him M.Richards, and J.Carter. I definitely don't think he takes Perry's spot in the lineup. As much as Perry might be an a-hole with a bad attitude, I think he is pretty close to the epitome of what Yzerman wants on this team.
As for Team USA I didn't know Kesler was American. And I think Rolston gets in that lineup somewhere.

Ya I agree perry and marleua are gonna be tough to cut so it will probably be at the expence of stamkos. Although if they take st louis i think stamkos will be there too. I was taking a shot in the dark at the other teams. I forgot about a bunch of guys. Thanks for letting me know who were some other players. Bobby Ryan will be there and some other guys too I forgot about.
