Hardest poll I've ever seen. NA mainly because they all speak the same language and probably will have more chemistry. Also their defense is better.

It would be awesome to watch, that's for sure. Needs more Patrick Kane. IMO..Him on Giroux's wing with Toews as the 3C. Kessel and Pominville seem a bit underrated too. Also, unfair to pair so many teammates for the world but not NA.

Gotta go with world. Chara-Karlsson would be the most ridiculous pairing ever.

Luongo over Miller though on the NA side.

Is he better than Weber, Doughty or Pietrangelo? I think not

Agreed. Just...

Couldn't even be topped by a Chara - Weber. Z and Karlsson complement each other perfectly and would be dominant.

I don't necessarily disagree... but if you add goals and points for both forward cores, I suspect you'll get more offense from North America. Interesting though.

Just curious, why is McDonaugh starting over Letang?

Anyways,

Forwards: World Much more lethal and explosive than the NA.
Defense: NA More balanced than World.
Goalies: World Lundqvist and Rinne are the best goalies in the world right now.

Overall: World, because all 4 lines can explode at any time. That firepower, with two of the best goalies in the world, beats NA in 5-6 games.

Lets be honest here it's impossible to make a non controversial roster, and it's impossible to choose between them. If i had to i think the World team has the better depth but that comes down to composition of roster.

Edit: On second thought i think NA has the much better defense, so i'll go with them. Goaltending is equal IMO.

17 Kovalchuk - 11 Kopitar - 71 Malkin (might switch Malkin to C)
I'd counter with:
Neal-Crosby-Kessel

22 Sedin - 33 Sedin - 81 Hossa
I'd put in:
Sharp-Toews-Kane (tons of sickening chemistry)

13 Datsyuk - 40 Zetterberg - 21 Eriksson
Let's do:
Hartnell-Giroux-Eberle

8 Ovechkin - 19 Backstrom - 10 Gaborik
This line looks cool until it faces
Tavares-Stamkos-St.Louis

Probably nothing to top Chara-Karlsson but the bottom two pairing would still be better. Point is, I think any way you slice it N.A. has so much talent/chemistry with intelligent line combos they win any day of the week...and Quick on his game is just a total monster.

NA because you didn't just throw 4 scoring lines.

Malkin doesn't play wing, especially not to Kopitar.
