    Due to one player being dealt or never re-signed. For me, Allison and Thornton would have been so nice in Boston. I wished the B's re-signed Allison back then, and would have probably the best 1-2 punch today!

    Well it only lasted about a half a season but Gretzky/Hull comes to mind. Too bad Gretz didnt stay there longer. he was no longer a goal scorer and Hull needed a guy like that to just feed him the puck.

    Doesn't count. Both players have to have played for the same team in one point of their career, but never at the same time.

    heres another one I would have liked to see. But I could be wrong, I think they both may have played for the canucks at the same time.

    Bure-Naslund

    technically no, but Lindros was practically a Leaf for a few weeks before that deal went down the crapper

    that might have worked but rememebr when everybody thought that bure and mogilny would make a deadly duo? It didn't quite work out.

    I think a perfect duo is when you have a natural passer who can pop a few in the net and a natural goal scorer.

    Thats why Oates and Hull is one of the best ever

    imagine that... lindros-sundin-mogilny.... if lindros got the amount of money he originally wanted.... that would be a 25 million dollar line..... the equal of some team's total payroll

    thank god for the upcoming cap... we were going down the same path as baseball crazy

    Two deadliest pure-offense, elite-skilled RW snipers in all of hockey.

    Pavel Bure and Alexander Mogilny on the top two lines of the same team.

    Oh wait...

    Bure and Naslund did play together for a short while in 97-98, with Messier at centre. The line actually wasn't half bad, but Naslund still had a lot of development to do at that point.

    If one were healthy, there's a chance we might have seen Bure-Jagr on the Rangers. No way they would have worked together even strength but on the PP that would have been fun to watch.

    Lafleur and Dionne. Pollock had a deal on the table to acquire the #2 pick in Lafleur's draft year, but backed down. He could have picked Lafleur and Dionne 1,2. What a combo that would have been.

    i was just thinkin Kariya, Feds and Selanne. Wouldnt you think Forsberg or Sakic centering those 2 instead would be better? Evidently not.
