Line Names

anyone thought of any good names for potential lines?

i was thinking that if the naslund - gomez - zherdev sticks together, they'd need a good nickname. "the ZiNG line" came to me, and while that's kinda stupid, it got me wondering. anybody else have any good lines names for current/potential future lines?

I think the only one that's fairly certain is the Naslund-Gomez-Zherdev line. Otherwise, yeah, it's up in the air.

I always loved the Fleury-Lindros-York line (as did FLYline, heheh ) and the Czech Mates with Hlavac-Nedved-Dvorak. HBO was cool too.

well seeing actual lines in these preseason games just got me thinking is all. we've seen dawes - drury - prucha, naslund - gomez - zherdev, and fritsche - dubinsky - callahan, all of which may stick as lines in the regular season, depending on their success. i also asked about potential future lines that people could think of.

i just love named lines, and i really hope we get one this year...

I love line names, but to me nothing is lamer or more unoriginal than naming a line after an acronym of the names of the players on it.

The Legion of Doom, the French Connection, the Clydesdale line; those are great names. My favorite recent one was Vancouver's Mattress Line a few years ago, when the Sedins played with Jason King (two twins and king).

HBO seemed all right, since it had Hollywood Hollweg on it. And I really did think FLY Line was pretty good. In general, I would agree though.

if we have a Drury-Gomez-Naslund line we could call it the Cash, Money line. b/c well that line gets paid alot.

Naslund - Gomez - Zherdev line.

How about the USA line?

Makes no sense other than they are from USSR, Sweden and Alaska.

Or the OAK line. Ornskoldsvik, Anchorage + Klev. Strong as OAK!!!


Jesus, thats weak. Someone get me a drink.

How about we play some games, score some goals and win some games before we start naming lines? Lines that have been given names usually have had some success before they are named. Let's see some positives before we start trying to name anything!

i hate the line naming thing so much. it is the kind of thing that sleazy sportswriters come up with to make their horribly written, grammatically sloppy articles have 'pop'.

Anyone catch Gomez and Naslund talking postgame last night?

Naslund talked about how that line has been "dominating" at times and Gomez in particular didnt seem like his usual self when talking about his linemates. Despite what we saw out there last night, which was flashes of great play mixed in with some disorientation and overpassing, from Gomez's point of view you would have thought they won the game 5-0 with that line scoring all 5. I was really surpsrised by what he said - to paraphrase, he seemed really excited about what that line would bring and how the Rangers fans should be really excited for this year.

I was actually kind of taken aback when I heard it because he never says anything like that, and said nothing of such - not even remotely last year when he was tried out with Jagr.

I still think Zherdev will be better off with Drury as his centerman, but another part of me thinks its still really early and they havent even begun to click yet judging by Gomers comments.

We'll see.

My gut tells me Zherdev should be with Drury and not with Gomez.

Naslund-Gomez-Dawes
Voros-Drury-Zherdev
Nedved-Dubinsky-Callahan
Fritsche-Betts-Sjostrom
Orr/Jamtin

Don't reallly like Voros on the second line, but its best to not think of the team as having numbered lines.
