Going by chemistry, I'd keep Lehtinen-Koivu-Selšnne together for second line. Ovechkin-Datsyuk-Jagr would probably be my first line. Bure-Forsberg-Fedorov would be my third line and try to match that against any opposition's 1st line.

Lehtinen-Datsyuk-Fedorov would be another interesting shutdown line. They could stop the opposition by blocking the goal with their Selke awards.
who would win could be argued, but i think it is clear that the Euro's, starting at this point in history, are equals. The same would not be said for any time period previous. I think this shows how much the game has progressed, and that the guys who stood out in 3d in years previous were standing out against lesser competition.

I also would pick the Euros with these lineups, but the lineups are way, way too solid to really be anything resembling confident.
