Just to keep things interesting, I'm going to avoid players I've not seen play and eschew with the big three (Lidstrom, Mario and #99).

Lines are in no particular order, and all players in their prime...built to win a single game:

Selanne Datsyuk Jagr
Shanahan Oates Hull (The Blue Line)
Mogilny Fedorov Bure (The Red Line :P)
Ovechkin Crosby Yzerman

Stevens Pronger
Coffey Niedermayer
Borque Konstantinov


Man, reading back through that I guess I'm a giant homer. Lots of former Wings on that list. Cest la vie. Also, I know some will question the inclusion of Oates here. To me, though, pairing him with Hull is a package deal. He was easily the best passer not named Wayne of his day, and Hull was a magician at being invisible until the puck was in the net. Unstoppable duo, IMO.

It was a tough call for me between Brodeur and Roy, but Marty ultimately got the nod for a couple of reasons: he was less prone to blowouts than Roy, and his puck handling was par none for goalies.

Steve Yzerman - Pavel Datsyuk - Pavel Bure
Nick Lidstrom - Bobby Orr
Martin Brodeur

Perfect Mix. Not overly tough on D but you're not getting by them...or i'd add Scott Stevens. I wish at any point in time i could have seen Pavel Bure in a winged wheel and imagine him playing on a line with Dats...sickening!

I like this team.

Yeah, I would be happy with that.
