Where does the Canucks top line rank in the league?

I dont know. If this team were any kind of contender then I think our current first line would be our second line.

I don't agree, I think we would have an actual 2nd line.

Edit; I'm not saying the twins are not second line players (there great first liners) I'm saying the problem is we have no second line.

If counting all 3 players on the top lines, then I'd say these lines are better:

Kunitz-Crosby-Hornqvist

Sharp-Toews-Hossa

Benn-Spezza-Seguin

Palat-Stamkos-Callahan

If Anaheim, Washington, LA, San Jose, NY Islanders, and maybe Philly loaded up their top lines like Dallas does, I'd put them ahead too.

So I'd consider ours in the 5-10 range.

Benn - Spezza - Seguin

Smith Pelly - Getzlaf - Perry

Drouin - Stamkos - Palat

Sharp - Toews - Hossa

Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis

Marleau - Couture - Wingels

Parise - Granlund - Pominville

Nelson - Tavares - Okposo

Ovechkin - Backstrom - Brouwer

Marleau - Couture - Wingels

Datsyuk - Zetterberg - Abdelkader

Landeskog - MacKinnon - O'Reilly

Hall - Nugent-Hopkins - Eberle

Lucic - Krejci - Griffith

JVR - Bozak - Kessel

No particular order but I'd take all those and about 4 or 5 2nd lines over Sedin - Sedin - Vrbata

1. Benn - Seguin - Spezza

2. Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis

3. Burakovsky - Backstrom - Ovechkin

4. Drouin - Stamkos - Callahan

5. Nelson - Tavares - Okposo

6. Sedin - Sedin - Vrbata

LOL get real

Sedin line at 6 ahead of ANA, SJ, LA, BOS just to name some?? They are no way in the top 10, maybe top 15, but even that is pushing it.

Looks about right 13-15 range.

I'd rank them ahead of the Couture and Krejci line though. IMO Boston's 2nd line is better Marchand - Bergeron - Smith/Eriksson

Yeah lines like

Pearson - Carter - Toffoli

Dupuis - Sutter - Malkin

Marchand - Bergeron - Smith

McGinn - Duchene - Iginla

Nieto - Thornton - Pavelski

Are also all better than Sedin - Sedin - Vrbata

Guys saying top 5 are nuts.

Man, I think people are really underrating the line... I mean, 21 combined points in 5 games for the 3. They look amazing together. I know they aren't flashy like some of the younger guys, but I base lines more on chemistry and performance than being fast and flashy, and I say they are easily top 10, with potential to be top 5 later in the season.

5 of those are not better than the Sedins. And if you look at the line as a whole instead of one player boosting the line (Stamkos, Crosby, etc) then you can bump the line up a few more spots. Oh and the Couture line was mentioned twice.
