Hellohellohello. The question of the best hockey lines has been discussed here many times I guess, but how about the best defense pairings? Here are some I could name with my limited knowledge. Vyacheslav Fetisov - Alexei Kasatonov Hey, these guys played well together even after they had stopped talking to each other! Both could make a transition from defense to offense and vice versa in a second. KLM was devastating as it was but these two made it even better. By all means the best ever European defense pair. Larry Robinson - Serge Savard Savard is one of my favourite players, but admittedly Robinson was THE MAN of the Big Three. These two were a great match with Robinson as the offensive guy and Savard taking care more of the defensive duties. You know, the late-70s Habs was such a well-balanced team that no wonder they dominated the NHL. Bobby Orr - Dallas Smith Nothing against Smith, but heÂ´s not the reason why this pair is on the list. Still, he canÂ´t be that bad since he played over 800 games for the Bruins. But yeah, had to put Bobby Orr somewhere here, so... Al Macinnis - Gary Suter A dangerous pair on CalgaryÂ´s power plays. Poor goalies and players who had to block their shots!
