Yeah, it was a great line.

But in my own opinion, i'd still takes one of Jagr-Reichel-Holik, Bure-Federov-Mogilny and Naslund-Forsberg-Sundstrom before them.

Doesn't remember enough for the first two, but didn't the Naslund-Forsberg-Sundstrom line score something like 10-15 goals in a single game against JAPAN?!? That does greatly inflate stats. If I remember correctly, against Canada Forsberg was real good, but has a line they were not great.

I personally think it should be a team that won. Bure-Fedorov-Mogilny is a great example of this. As is Crosby-Bergeron-Perry. They won, they dominated and no one really stopped them. Canada stopped Sweden in 1993 with Forsberg. I guess you have to ask if that is good enough to ignore the 31 points Forsberg had.

This line is just ridiculous. I think mogilny gets forgotten when thinking about the Russian studs from the 90s except for the 76 goals in 77 game season. That line would sure be fun to watch a full season of.

It's no coincidence that all the major records in the tournament are pre 1996, when it was a simple round robin and the best players ran up scores on the bottom half of the group. The way the tournament is run now, none of those records will ever be broken. So while the top 3 or so have been listed, I'll list what I feel is one of the best lines of the modern era of the tournament. I know they weren't full time, but every powerplay and every time that Canada needed a goal in 2009, they put out Tavares Hodgson Eberle. One of the most clutch lines I have ever seen play in the tournament.

Since 1996, the top scorers are generally between 10 to 13 points. That year the top 3 scorers were Hodgson Tavares Eberle with 16 15 13. That was in only 6 games because of the bye.

The most points in the modern tournament though is by Braden Schenn with 18 in 6 games. Scary thing is he played with a separated shoulder the last two games and only got 1 goal.

We might see the scoring leader average go back up a bit again though since next year the bye is gone and true QF matches return.

Fedorov - Mogilny - Bure for sure.

wouldn't put down Bergeron - Crosby - Perry too far behind those guys though.

Forsberg had 4 or 5 points that game, not sure about his linemates.

Well, that is the case in every single WJC tournament.. the ones that score lots of points do have games against smaller nations where they pile points.

If I remember correctly Forsberg had 10 points against Japan not sure about the rest and he had 4 points against Canada.

Esa Keskinen-Mikko Makela-Esa Tikkanen should be mentioned aswell I think,

We're talking about lines not teams, and Canada may have beaten Sweden in '93 but they had no answer for the Forsberg/Naslund/Sundstrom line. Nobody did. They get my pick as top WJC line of all-time.

By the way, I'm not sure how the playoff round has changed things over the old round robin format in regards to the scoring records. You play a roughly equivalent group of teams caliber wise, though possibly in one less game thanks to the first place bye. I think other factors probably have more of an effect including the fact that hockey just isn't as high scoring as it used to be.

ahah...there it is...not sure how many games they did this in, but I think its one of the best as all 3 turned out to be star players..whereas only the Mogily - Federov- Bure line can really say the same thing....

Whats interesting is none of those lines won gold, and two of them didn't even medal.

Crosby and Perry, 2 MVPs on the same line. Pretty sure that doesn't happen very often.

Watching 2/3 of that line wasn't much fun.

It was also in an era where hookings and holdings were a part of the game. I know the highlights against Czechs and Canada are somewhere on youtube. Forsberg had a stick around his waist or a hand on his jersey all game long. It was ridiculous.

Also agree a bit with the guy who said it wasn't necessarily the line, it was Forsberg. Forsberg had almost half of the points. Although it's possible the other great lines had a similar breakdown.
