What's our 2nd best line since the lockout?

I think the Straka-Nylander-Jagr line is easily the best since the lockout. However, every year it seems at least for a handful of games we have a line doing amazing things on the ice. Unfortunately if that line had a poor shift under Torts it got broken up (not too much of an exaggeration). I remember Anisimov-Stepan-Gaborik doing amazing things for a few games. Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik was really good.

We have the Stepan line now and they're probably our most entertaining line since the Nylander line, but I don't know if I'd say it's #2. None of the guys are goal scorers and they have 8 goals total between them. I feel like they control play better and more consistently than that Hags-Richards-Gaborik line had, but that line had a 40 goal scorer on it. I think Richards is a better goal scorer than Stepan too. At least he was that year.
