Ocean's 11 Role: Sharks player.

The Mastermind: Joe Thornton. Fun loving and cool under pressure. He makes the whole operation work.

The Lancer: Ryane Clowe. A good improvisor who can take charge when stuff gets serious.

The Money: Joe Pavelski, because he IS money.

The Con Man: Patrick Marleau. He'd be great at fast-talking his way out of a sticky situation, right?

The Engineer: Douglas Murray. He's not just about brawn, and he's great at blowing stuff up.

The Computer Guy: Thomas Greiss, because he looks like a nerd.

The Grunt: Brent Burns. He can also double as the Snake Guy, depending on the nature of the heist.

The Wheel Man: Jamie McGinn. He strikes me as a guy who drives like a jerk.

The Old Guy: Dan Boyle. Obviously.

The Acrobat: Torrey Mitchell. Mitchell is fast, flexible, and Asian, so this is a perfect fit.

The Young Guy: Logan Couture. Every bit as charming as Matt Damon.

Prediction: The Sharks kill the Blackhawks, THEN they go to work on them. Sharks win 5-3. Goals from the Young Guy, the Acrobat, the Wheel Man, the Money, and the Mastermind.
