  1. Which line is your favourite so far? It can be any team.
    Mine is the DDT line from Canada :yo:

    Doan-Thornton-Draper. My biggest surprise/biggest achiever has been Lecavalier

    I like every Team Canada line right now except for St. Louis - Richards - Gagne.

    St. Louis has been invisible since they left Montreal.

    J.Ruutu-Hahl-Nieminen. Sadly, that line won't play in the final. :banghead:

    These lines are from another board, not sure if these are official, but they sure aren't just made up from hat.

    Kiprusoff
    Timonen Numminen
    Lehtinen Koivu Selänne
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    Berg Salo
    Peltonen Jokinen T. Ruutu
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    Väänänen Lydman
    Hagman Kapanen Hentunen
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    Eloranta Hahl J. Ruutu


    As for my favorite line, that would be Saku Koivu's line, because of Koivu. I like Jokinen's line too.

    Can't believe they are playing J. Ruutu over Nieminen. All that Ruutu did in the semi was knee Leetch and take a stupid penalty that cost them a goal. Nieminen on the other hand was hitting everything in sight (clean hits).

    Exactly my thoughts. I would like to see Nieminen there instead of J. Ruutu.

    Lemieux - Sakic - Iginla.

    I love Iggy because of the way he plays and because he's such a good ambassador for the NHL.

    Also, I've been soaking up all of the special little things Lemieux can do that others can't, because who knows how much of that is left??

    The
    Smyth-Lecavalier-Heatley line...
    Every time they are on the ice you know that you will see some GREAT hits.

    ya, Smyth-Lecavalier-Healtley has probably been the most consistent line in the tourny for Canada, so I'll pick them
     
  14. Lehtinen Koivu Selanne

    Havlat Elias Vyborny

    Frolov Yashin Zubrus

    Gagne Richards St. Louis (had to take the less popular route!)

    Obviously, as usual, you are just taking Flames over Canucks. Ruutu did tonnes in that game. He earned a star, threw tonnes of hits, got Tkachuk and Guerin off their games, and got screwed by a crappy call and a dive by Drury.

    Draper-Thornton-Doan

    Draper's amazing defence, Thornton's stellar checking, and Doan's physical dominance. My kind of line.

    Smyth - Lecavalier - Heatley

    fun to watch. They can score and hit. A good balance of the Doan-Thornton-Draper line and the Sakic-Lemieux-Iginla line

    2nd favorite would be Nieminen - Hahl - Ruutu.

    Smyth-Lecavalier-Heatley for me as well.

    They just seem to be the most well-balanced and most versatile line right now. by the way, me and my buddies call them the RVD line for all you past and present wrestling fans. (Ryan, Vinny, Danny)

    My favourite line was when Bret Hull said, "I don't give a f*@k about the fans".

    That's what you meant eh?...... :joker:

    I thought Modin-Sundin-Alfredsson was pretty great, at least in the round robin. Then whole Team Sweden sucked.. :banghead:

    What tournament have you been watching.So, they didn't have a great last game.
    However they didn't get much icetime either.Also i don't think they were on for
    any czeck goals.Tonight they should get icetime.Look what Richards and St.Louis
    did to Kiprusoff in Cup Final.

    Doan-Thornton-Draper have been a good line in a role I would have NOT want to see in this tournament from Canada...

    Defensive matchup against another team from Canada... :shakehead

    I like Lecavalier line and Sakic line much more and I want to see them a lot more against Finland. (If Quinn still want to match the lines against Finland again :dunno: :banghead: , not that the Thornton line have been bad hey, but it's like saying to New Jersey to win their games 8-7... Not a style that fit well)

    I said ST. LOUIS was invisible since they left Montreal (3 games). If you haven't noticed that, you're the one not watching the games. I never said anything about Richards not playing well, I just don't like that line which is all I said in my post.

    Look what Richards and St. Louis did to Kiprusoff in the finals ?? :lol Its not like they owned him. The Lightning were outscored in that series and won mainly due to Khabibulin than anybody else.

    Obviously, you are the one choosing Canucks over Flames. Most hockey fans in Finland have said they would rather see Nieminen than Ruutu.

    It was Nieminen that got Tkachuk off his game, thats why he wouldn't shake his hand afterwards. Don't give the credit to Ruutu when it wasn't even him.
