Line 5 is scary. I can imagine the announcers Tic-Tac-Tic-Tac-Tic-Tac- GOAL. It'd simply be a game of keep away on the power play as The Sedins are masters of the give and go when playing with each other and throwing in Hossa just makes it scarier. Simply an amazing passing line.

Line 6 would be an amazing line in both ends of the ice. Gaborik's shot is amazing and Datsberg play well together already. Putting these players hands, creativity and scoring touch together on one line is just crazy. Would be deadly in all three zones.

Line 7 has so much size and scoring ability, although they may lack slightly in skill compared to other lines. The size and physical ability of these three players would intimidate other lines and really mess with goalies. Anyone of these players could screen the goalie or run someone on the other team over. Could be a line u never want to play against. From a physical and scoring perspective.

Line 8 is an interesting line. Two amazing playmakers who also have hte ability to score to some extent. And Marleau riding shot gun burying all those easy goals. This line could really light it up if they come together well.

I'm going to take Line 5 b/c i can just imagine the passing plays they would make with each other.

This was a tough one in between line 5 or 6 for me. But in the end....I would have to go with line 6. Datsyuk and Z-berg are one of the best two way forwards in the game and are great playmakers. I can see Gaborik with 40-50 goals and Datsyuk and Zetterberg with a combined total of about 150-160 assist. I think this line is complete package of defense and offense.

Yeah,I'd have to go with line 6,just due to the fact that Zetterberg and Datsyuk are great playmakers/two way forwards,match that with Gaboriks speed. It'd be quite frightening.

Line 5,comes close but the defensive side wouldn't be as good as line 6's. That was the deciding factor for my decision.

For me Line #7.

The most talented player in the poll. (imo)

The best power forward in the poll. (imo)

And a Center who can do everything. (imo)

Mallin challenges for the Art Ross every year on this line.

I also went with Line #7. While I don't particularly like either Malkin or Staal, I think that line is the most complete in this poll.

I'll take line 8. I like the speed the Pat's bring and Thorton's size balances this line out nicely. I guess I was also taking injuries into consideration. There seem to be a good amount of banged up bodies on this list, not sure if that was intended or not.
