I've really liked

Hall-Horcoff-Hemsky

and

MPS-Gagner-Yakupov

HHH can play hard minutes and produce offense, they all have chemistry from years previous so it's no surprise that this line is working. I also like the look of the lineup better when Hall is away from RNH and Eberle, just brings more balance.

The Gagner line has been good as well, MPS and Gagner have had chemistry since Magnus' rookie year and you can tell that MPS really likes playing with Gagner, their styles compliment eachother well. MPS also brings a little bit of defensive awareness to a line that is lacking that a bit. I like it.

Now RNH-Eberle plus the rotating left winger has left a lot to be desired this year. I don't know what it is but RNH and Eberle haven't been playing very well together this season. Kreuger needs to continue to feed them soft minutes so they can build some offensive confidence.

Would really like a better LW to play with them than Jones though.
