    Challenge of thread, create your favourite or love to see lines (5 players) and must mix Leaf & Jets players on the line. I'll start:

    Ehlers Matthews Wheeler

    Gardiner Buff

    Or

    Laine Nylander Marner

    Rielly Trouba

    Let's see your combo's, any lines or combo including all players. Thread to bring Leaf & Jets fans together & improve relations. So just relax and have fun with it and no one take offence or create pissing matches.

    If you want a thread just to improve relations between two clubs wouldn't it be best to get something going in the Jets board? You will have no problem getting leaf fans to show up there. Otherwise try to make this a league thing, involve all the other teams.

    Thread to have fun, if you don't want to add to it then don't post in it. Including other teams defeats intent of thread

    My point was that if that is your intent it would probably work a lot better not being in the main boards. Anyway, was just a suggestion.

    Laine - Matthews - Marner

    Laine would be the main trigger man while Matthews does his thing as center and fights for the pucks. Marner has one of the best visions in the league so he would fit fine setting up the two.

    Ehlers - Scheifele - Nylander

    Scheifele doing the dirty work while two speedy and skilled wingers do their job in the offensive zone.

    I did similar thing, made Laine & Matthews the tigger men on separate lines. I don't think Laine & Matthews styles would work great together on same line imo. Plus breaks them up, harder to defend vs.

    I'm going to do a top 6/top 4 (There's enough good players to make 2 top lines and there's multiple D-Pairings I like):


    Nylander - Matthews - Wheeler
    Marner - Scheifele - Laine

    Rielly - Trouba
    Gardiner - Buff

    Thought the Matthews-Nylander and Scheifele-Laine duos were the best possible and took who I thought would best compliment each duo. For defense, I think each partner will compliment the other one well.

    Probably should separate Matthews and Laine since they're both high volume shooters. There wouldn't be enough puck to go around.

    Laine with Marner would be insane though. Laine would get so many open spots in high danger areas.

    I'd rather Wheeler than Nylander, but otherwise not so bad.

    Laine - Scheifele - Marner
    Nylander - Matthews - Wheeler
    JVR - Kadri - Ehlers
    Perrault/Connor/Marleau - Little - Brown/Kapanen

    Rielly - Trouba (shutdown)
    Gardiner - Byfuglien (all offense)
    Morrissey - Zaitsev (mix)

    Andersen
    Mason


    My god the top-3 lines would be unstoppable. I can't even fathom how good the 2nd line would be with Wheeler taking Hyman's spot...

    I just like the chemistry of Nylander and Matthews. It also lets the 3rd line be something like Kadri - little - wheeler

    Who cares, when you have Mark & Matthews, you have two guys who are true #1C. Sub or play whoever is hot or fits the situation best.

    Don't turn this into a pissing match please.

    Agreed

    Let's have one friendly good spirited thread between Jets/Leafs celebrating our great line ups.

    It was a legitimate question. You have to have a #1 #2 #3 #4 line. I don't see Little as a #4C for instance. So if we can't discuss this. This thread is kind of silly. So I am out of this mythical thread and I will leave it to you folks...

    Nope, you don't. Look at the leafs last season, they had 3 lines they would roll out for different situation, not a 1, 2, and 3.

    Idk but I'd wanna see Trouba and Gardiner paired. That would be unreal.

    Doesn't get much better then that. With that lineup I think the weakest position would be goaltending. Anderson/Mason would be very solid, battling it out for starter but neither are elite level. Their biggest problem might be trying to stay alert b/c the puck would rarely be in our end. haha

    No you don't need to label them. PMO refused on many occasions to call Mark 1C, he still referred to Little as our 1C. But how he played them said it all.

    I think Matthews/wheeler would be a great pair

    Scheifele+Laine is the future duo
