Like that has stopped people before? I'm pretty sure at some point, you have put together lines containing a player that had not competed at the NHL level?

We (myself incl) are constantly making up line combos that incl players that have been on other NHL teams (Jagr), players that still are (Iginla), junior players (Camara), AHL players (Spooner, Krug, Knight, etc), now SEL players. And the vast majority of the people that throw these lines together don't get to see the B's practice together, so we have no idea who is going to have chemistry and who isn't

Granted, we have seen players like Jagr and Iginla on other teams at the NHL level, but for the most part the "line combo" thing is an exercise of pure speculation and entertainment with the occasional bit of logic thrown in.
