Favorite Line to Watch

Curious as to everyone's favorite line to watch when they're watching a Hawks game...

I went with the third line; it's hard not to love a line that plays above their talent. Obviously, I love the 1st line too but who doesn't. Anytime on a PP or late in the game when Kane and Hossa play together, those are probably my favorite lines.

The best line you can watch is the Saad-Toews-Hossa line, but watching Kane carry his line, which, I should add, has gone through change, is quite impressive and fun to watch.

To clarify, Kane's line is my favorite to watch. He's on another level.

No disrespect to the other lines - but Kane on his own is more entertaining than any/all of the lines.

Shades of 2010 when all 4 lines have votes 8 voters in...

I went for the first line as they are now. But after Sharpie gets back, I think it would change.

It is a really hard question to answer for any true Blackhawks fan as they way all four lines are playing as of late, they are all great and fun to watch!

My favorite combination has been Hossa and Kane lately. Those two work magic together!

I really liked Saad-Toews-Kane last night even though Saad was a bit off his game.

1st line. Watching Kane is great but Saad Toews AND Hossa on the ice together dominating on both sides... just a dream to watch.

I've been enjoying the 3rd line all year. Shaw's grit, Bickell playing the best hockey of his career, and having some great vision on some of his nifty passes, Stalberg's speed, and all 3 of them putting points on the board in varying ways. They also just seem to know where each other will be.

Voted for Kane's line. He's my favorite player to watch, so just him is better than watching any other line.

It's the 3rd for me this year. 1st is the easy pick, and this is no slight to them at all. But there's just something about seeing a line of guys who cost a collective $1.472 million just completely dominate on the cycle every shift and continue to rack up points.

i voted for kane line but watching stalberg and Bickell dominate other teams while Shaw works his ass off and seemingly always finds the soft spots of a defense is a real treat.

Patrick Kane is the most entertaining player on the team, by far, so whatever line he's one, is the best one to watch.

Kane's line should not be leading because they are horrible without him, most of his damage comes in mixed line changes and the PP.

Toews, Hossa, Saad by a mile. By far the best two-way line in the NHL, and the best line at puck possession. I love watching these guys play on both ends.

On a side note, Carcillo pissed on Q's lunch or something. He hasn't really seen much ice time since coming back.

Bolland is a -1 on this team. That's amazing. Only Brookbank and Carcillo are negatives as well.

The poll is line combo and outside of Kane that line has been horrible.

It's a good thing 99% of posters understand the concept.
