AK-Plek-Kovy

the Tanguay-Koivu-Kovy line was great but they play less then 20 games together so it's hard to tell

Pretty much this in a nutshell.

Yep, this line was great. I think all of them was producing at a point per game rate for 10-15 games.

It was one of the rare time in Saku's career that he got two good wingers and he was dominating.

Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Kovalev was one of the best lines in the NHL that season!!!

I was at the game against Atlanta when Gainey put Tanguay, Koivu and Kovalev together. I have been to over 40 games live and I have never witnessed a more dominating line, Habs or opponents.

I loved the Higgins-Koivu-Ryder line but that might be because Higgins and Saku were always my two favorite players...

why vote for this when you had the same players with 84 pts 35 goals Kovalev instead of unproven rookie Pacioretty?

This is pathetic.

I really loved the Higgins - Plekanec - Kostitsyn line that Carbo made up during the 2007 playoff push. Wouldn't call it the best, but man they were fun to watch.

HM: Bégin - Bonk - Downey

Begin-Bonk-Johnson was better

I agree entirely, but I still voted Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev because that was a level of dominance we just have not seen.

I really wanted to keep them so we could see what they would have done together over a full season.
