    The greatest line of all time is, and in my opinion there is not a doubt:

    Krutov - Larionov - Makarov


    The greatest swedish line of all time is usually considered to be the 1984 Canada Cup line consisting of

    Loob - Steen- K. Nilsson

    but I like the 1987 WCH line consisting of

    Loob - B-Å Gustafsson - Sandström

    Leaf Lander, a 1-2 punch is if they have two players on the same position on different lines.

    For example... Theoretically the leafs have a good 1-2-3 punch in

    Sundin - Lindros - Allison.

    This is kinda sad. I can understand that North Americans don´t really know "Troika Petrova" (=Mikhailov-Petrov-Kharlamov), but the line truly dominated the seventies in European hockey and was more effective in the World Championships than KLM (though it´s hard to compare; different era and so forth...).

    Unfortunately they didn´t really play together in the Summit Series ´72 and only a couple of games during the Super Series ´75-´76, and no Canada Cups... but it´s still one of best lines ever without a shadow of a doubt.

    Some other great European lines:

    Yakushev - Shadrin - Shalimov (Soviet Union/Spartak, mid-70s)
    Kapustin - Zhluktov - Balderis (Soviet U./Red Army, late ´70s)
    Martinec - Novak - B. Stastny (Czechoslovakia/Tesla Pardubice, 70s)

    - Alexandrov - Almetov - Loktev. (60's). Veniamin Alexandrov still holds record for most goals in one season with 53. It is one more than previous record of Vsevolod Bobrov.
    - B. Mayorov - Starshinov - E. Mayorov. (60's) They were that good when they were young that only this line was enough for Spartak to win championship and beat CSKA's machine.
    - Vikoulov - Polupanov - Firsov (60's). Who doesn't know "stick-skate-stick" move ?

    Babich - Shuvalov - Bobrov (early 50's). The first great line in our hockey.
