Line #1:
Ovechkin - Kopitar - St. Louis

Line #2:
Kovalchuk - Crosby - Iginla

Line #3:
Ryan - Toews - Parise

Line #4:
Nash - Stamkos - Perry
The first line looks dynamic with the skill and size of Ovechkin and Kopitar along with the creativity and speed that St. Louis brings. The scoring touch and ability of each of these players would just enhance each others game and bring them to a whole new level. Could be a very frightening line especially with Ovechkin out there running people over.

The second line also looks dangerous. Putting one of the leagues best playmakers with guys like Iginla and Kovalchuk is just plain scary. The size and scoring touch each of these three players possess would create space for each other and really draw the attention of the other teams shut down units. They would feed off each other and are also a dangerous threat to any net minder.

The third line could easily bring a balanced offense with the creativity of Toews, size and strength of Ryan along with the all around game of Parise. This could easily be the best shut down line in the league, while also scoring and reeking havoc on the other teams shut down line. This line is great in all 3 zones.

The fourth line certainly has the talent to match up with the other three lines mentioned prior but I'm not entirely sure their games would mesh together. Each bring their own type of game to the floor but i question whether the chemistry would be there with them. If they can come together and mesh i could easily see this line dominating teams and being just as dangerous if not more so then the other three lines.

When looking at these lines i would take the 3rd line mentioned. Mainly because i like the balance between them and the fact that all three players bring a great two way game to the table. Also by looking at how they play i think they would find chemistry playing with each other and could really come into bloom if put together.

This is tough. I'm going with line 1 by just a little over every other line. I think they balance out nicely.

I'd go line 3. That to me seems to be the most complete line with the best competitive nature. All solid frames as well. They all have a well rounded game and do what it takes to win and that's what I want on my team.

I'm going with line 2.

Crosby could hit 100A with two wingers like Iggy and Kovy.

I'm gonna go with line 2. I'm more of an offensive minded guy so with Crosby and Iggy working down low, feed it up top to Kovalchuk he scores. I can see Iginla and Kovalchuk reaching 40+ goals and Crosby around 90 assist. This is a scary line because not only because of the offense but also the toughness of Iginla..and sort of with Crosby and Kovy.

An definite line 2 for me,Crosby with Iggy,and Kovy. Man,that'd be sweet. Crosby would probably put up 175-200(perhaps predicting too high) points,(if he can get on a rate to 135-140 without these qualities of wingers,then with them,oh my Lord.)

I'll admit it, I was biased and went with Line #3. You've got the excellent two-way play of Toews, combined with Parise's finishing ability and work ethic, plus the power forward game of Ryan. I think it's a very complete line that you can play in pretty much any situation. And I happen to like all three players.
