Just stick with HBL, contrived names are stupid, the last 2 standing in particular are stupid...and who says the "half" is Briere?
If Hartnell still had his hair, it could have been Three and a Half. That mullet was half way to sentience.

This. Don't know what everyone's obsession with nicknames is anyways.

How about the Better Half Line?

BHL = Better Half Line and Briere, Hartnell and Leino.

You know you are having a good season when, the worst thing to effect your team is a catch phrase for one of your lines.

I don't see what's bad about "HBL"...

It's simple, easy to say, and easily recongizable.

Legion of Doom is probably the coolest name for a line ever. After that anything would sound weak.

Donno if the line will be kept together. Leino scored twice after not scoring in a long time.. and he scored by being separated from HB.

Leino moving to another line opens up some possibilities.

Crossing Broad has already dubbed a possible Carter-Richards-Leino combination as the "Costa Rica Line"

Leave HBL as it is.

Zherdev-Carter-Giroux line could be an "allright" -line, though.
Everyone of them having right handed shot and the line overall playing alright.

That's what I've been thinking too; "The Playoff line" just sounds awesome and obviously every Flyer fan will remember it.

^^Basically every hockey line nickname ever.
but lcb had the benefit of also being the Liquor Control Board and all of those guys were known to party.

i personaly call it the hubble line like the telescope, they play outta this world! its really just convenient and they make pretty plays the way the hubble takes pretty pictures.

I agree. Lines should have to be together for years, and be great before they get nicknamed. People want to hand out nicknames for every line combination on every team these days.

And unless it's a great name, just forget it. Please.

Correct. Hartnell is Gimli (obvious), Briere is Legolas because he's kind of a pretty boy but scores a ton, and Leino is Aragorn because he is the King and will soon come to rule the NHL (Middle Earth) as Gretzky's successor.
