1. Shanahan - Fedorov - Yzerman
Awesome line with future Hall of Famers and 3 of my favorite Wings players. It worked a lot better in 2002 than it did in the 2003 playoffs, but it was comforting knowing we had a line with that kind of star power, which could scare the hell out of opposing fans.
2. Maltby - Draper - McCarty
I had a hard time not putting the "Grind Line" number one. Kocur played on that line as well, but this version with McCarty is the one people remember best. I hope we see a line again which brings that kind of excitement to fans at the JLA.
3. Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Hull
Although Pavel and Hank became better players later in their career, this line with Hull was the most fun to watch. They had countless highlight reel goals and the passing was mesmerizing to watch. Hull was always an underrated passer.
4. Kozlov - Fedorov - Larionov
The "Russian Five", as they were known together with Fetisov and Konstantinov, are as good a line as you'll ever see in terms of puck possession and skill. Fedorov and Kozlov were both in their primes in that time. They were eventually split up into other lines which won Cups, but it's hard to forget this particular group. I don't remember who played center on this line, so I could be wrong putting Fedorov there.
5. Ellis - Hussey - Langfeld
Not s***ting you here. This line was so bad that they're actually good! They had solid chemistry from playing together in the AHL, but I remember seeing many shifts where they'd have a minute of puck possession cycling in the offensive zone, but were unable to get any shots on goal or even decent scoring chances. Maybe it's funnier in retrospect than it was at the time.
