1. Colorado Avalanche: Gabriel Landeskog — Nathan MacKinnon — Mikko Rantanen
This should not be much of a surprise to anyone. The defending Stanley Cup Champions lost a good bit this offseason, but they lost none of their top line.
Landeskog is not currently listed on the projection, but that is because of an injury that probably will not keep him out much longer than the first few games of the year. And when he is healthy, we know how good and important he is to this team, not only as someone who is skilled and gets into the dirty areas, but as their captain and leader.
MacKinnon is night and day the best player in the Central Division and not much more needs to be said about him. Rantanen too is one of the best young wingers in the league and makes this line as dangerous as it is.
When it comes to being both skilled and prove, the Avalanche are undoubtedly at the top of the ranking of top lines in the Central Division.
