    Which line would you choose for your team if they all spent their prime years together (mostly healthy too) and assuming they all developed great chemistry?

    Forsberg/Crosby/Lindros

    Zetterberg/Fedorov/Datsyuk

    Ovechkin/McDavid/Bure

    Kovalchuk/Sakic/Jagr

    Kopitar/Toews/Bergeron

    Semin/Lemieux/Kovalev

    Getzlaf/Malkin/Kane

    Yzerman/Messier/Iginla

    The ability to take a healthy Forsberg/Lindros makes this a pretty easy poll. Especially when the 3rd guy is Crosby. Although, it's pretty hard to pass on the idea of McDavid setting up two 60+ goal guys with the speed to actually keep up with him

    Either one of these lines will make you have to just hand the cup to them before the season starts for the next 15 years if all are young so I'll be happy with any of these lol. Definitely Foppa-Crosby-Lindros though

    I like the idea of the poll, even though it's going to be heavily lopsided

    Yeah I was just curious if any of those other lines would get more votes, I thought maybe a lot more would vote for the Lemieux line just because of Lemieux.

    Can we split them up?

    Lindros - Crosby - Eriksson
    Sedin - Sedin - Forsberg
    Baertschi - Horvat - Boeser
    Granlund - Sutter - Gagner
    Virtanen

    They would never shoot the damn puck though.

    Forsberg+Crosby with a net-front precence like Lindros wins this easily.

    Lines which won't have any player with a net-front ability, would be poor, just wasting talent. I would split them on different lines.

    Good constructed:
    Messier - Yzerman - Iginla
    Malkin - Getzlaf - Kane
    Toews - Kopitar - Bergeron
    Crosby - Forsberg - Lindros

    Poor constructed lines:
    Semin - Lemieux - Kovalev
    Kovalchuk - Sakic - Jagr
    Ovechkin - McDavid - Bure

    Forsberg Lindros Crosby

    Especially when our second line would then feature Stamkos and Kucherov

    Too lopsided. Voted for Lemieux because maybe he could make some magic happen, but it's easily the Lindros line.

    Forsberg-Crosby-Lindros
    Maroon-McDavid-Drai
    Lucic-Hopkins-Strome
    Slepy-Letesnu-Kassian
    Drake

    Jokinen and Juju put on waivers.
    Puljujari spends the entire next season in the AHL.
    Drake probably demands to be traded 5 games into the season. LOL
    Drai and McDavid probably both end up playing on the 2nd PP unit.
    Drai and Forsberg center the 2 PK units.
