Robitaille-Yzerman-Hull
Lidstrom-Chelios

I figure with Lids, Cheli, and Yzerman, you don't need your wingers to backcheck so why not go full offense. Robitaille seems to be underrated on here. He's the highest-scoring left wing of all-time. And Hull is only second to Gordie Howe as the highest-scoring right wing of all-time. I'm not necessarily picking the top five players as much as trying to find chemistry. I think this unit could score a lot of goals.

An alternative line could be:

Shanahan-Fedorov-Ciccarelli

Grit and toughness with some finesse in the middle. "Big Balls" Dino as the net-front presence would be useful. You could get a ton of redirect/rebound goals with Lids at the point. I might even like this line better than the first. I think they would be more fun to watch.
