All-Time Best Named Lines

I'm curious which lines everyone would consider as some of the best named forward lines (i.e. The Punch Line, The Production Line, etc.) of all time.

My favourites are the ones that don't fit the "The ______ Line" mold - The French Connection is my personal favourite out of that group.

I like how West Coast Express was both a rail company and could be used to summarize the Canucks top line: speed, Vancouver, and a force that could absolutely rock you if you got in the way.

Chicago had the Million Dollar Line: I think it was Hull, Hay and Balfour.

Later, they had a whimsical "South of the Border Line," with Chico Maki, "Pancho" Esposito and "Roberto" Hull.

pretty exhaustive rundown.

The Smack Line —Anaheim Ducks—(2007)—Teemu Selanne, Andy McDonald and Chris Kunitz is hilarious.

....always think liquid paper when I see that, and how Mike Nesmith's Mother of The Monkees' fame invented that stuff. Sold the patent for $47.5M to Gillette in the early 60's and received a royalty on every bottle sold until 2000.

....kinda adds a new dimension to that line of Maruk-Murdoch-MacAdam huh?

Most of my favourites have already been listed (Hull and Oates never fails to make me smile).

A few others I like:

Vancouver's Mattress Line (two twins and a King, Jason IIRC)
Detroit's Roaring 20s Line (Roest, Butsayev, Laplante - a short-lived and talent-challenged line but great name)
Ottawa's Pizza Line (not a great name but I like the story behind it)

My favorite line was Lafleur Gretzky Perreault in the 81 CC. Anyone know if they were given a name?
