    Done before? but what I mean by scariest duo as in the most deadly when it came to scoring, of course as an oiler fan I'd have to say Gretzky-Kurri :handclap: Lemieux-Jagr? (did they even play on the same line?)

    Anyways, I'm not as knowledgable about the history of the nhl as many of you, so share thoughts.

    Without mentioning those that have already been posted, here are a few that I think fed really well off of each other.
    Howe-Lindsay
    Orr-Espo
    Lafleur-Shutt
    Kharlamov-Yakushev
    Bentley-Mosienko
    Morenz-Joliat
    I'm sure Hull and Mikita must have played pp with each other and it would have been magical, but I don't think they played on a line together as Mikita played most of his prime on the scooter line, is that right?

    How about Newsy Lalonde and Joe Malone for the Montreal Canadiens. They only played together for the Canadiens for two years, but between them they won the NHL's 1st 4 scoring titles, 2 each.

    Not as prolific as the others mentioned, but Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne.

    1483 points combined with 306 playoff points combined, and led their team to 2 stanley cups. One of the best duos of the 90's IMO.

    By duo I meant players that played together, not #1, #2 centers for there teams
     
  14. Best two that I've seen in my life were mentioned: Trottier-Bossy and Gretzky-Kurri

    I tought about them to :handclap:
     
  18. They were not linemates often. They were on seperate lines to create a 1-2 punch. Sakic and Forsberg will fall under the category as Best 1-2 punch in the leauge. As best Duo im going with the Selanne Kariya combo with the ducks in the late 90's.

    How about Gretzky and Lemieux on the '87 Canada Cup team. That had to be a duo who put some fear into the opposition.

    Just before my time but I know Bobby Hull and Phil Esposito played together for a while.

    Lemieux and Coffey on the same powerplay resulted in the NHL record for powerplay goals in a season.

    I always thought they played on the same line. The PP must have been good with Sakic, Forsberg, Hejduk, Tanguay, Blake.

    Lemieux and Jagr when they played together...

    Crosby and Malkin if Crosby plays the wing should be on this list in 20 years...
