A 2011-2012 Red Wings dream roster

Looking at the current Red Wings roster as it stands after the first day of free agency and the free agents still available, I really just see one glaring void to fill. And that's in the center spot. Since Red Wings have plenty of cap space to play for a top center, I would love to see that someone be Brad Richards. Consider this lineup:

ZETTERBERG(LW) - DATSYUK(C) - FRANZEN(RW)
HOLMSTROM(LW) - RICHARDS(C) - BERTUZZI(RW)
ABDELKADER(LW) - FIPPULA(C) - CLEARY(RW)
MILLER(LW) - HELM(C) - EAVES(RW)

LIDSTROM - KRONWALL
ERICSSON - STUART
KINDL - COMMODORE

I look at this lineup and I see a cup winning bunch. Obviously Happy Hudler is the person missing from this picture. I've always liked Hudler, but I am afraid he's the weakest link in his position at the moment. No rumors have surfaced whether or not Red Wings GM Ken Holland is courting Richards, however this would be a very exciting scenario. We will soon know.
