    Russia Or Canada

    I was wondering who had the better first line on there Olympic team...

    Russia's first line is...
    Ovechkin, Malkin, and Kovalchuk

    Canada's first line is...
    Nash, Crosby, and Iginla

    Russia could also throw Datsyuk on the first line and Canada could put Heatley or Thornton on there first line.

    It's going to come down to these 2 teams for the gold...

    Who do you guys think... I like the Russian line better but Canada team has a better team as a whole...

    Better first line is Russia with a relative ease.

    More depth goes to Canada.

    If I had to choose over a Pens player to have on my team it would be Malkin.

    Stats wise it's very close but Canada's first line has more points...

    Nash-18g 17a-35p
    Crosby-22g 20a-42p
    Iginla-17g 17a-34p
    111 point total

    Ovechkin-21g 17a-38p
    Malkin-10g 24a-34p
    Kovalchuk-19g 16a-35p
    107 point total

    These numbers would be different cause i know Malkin and Ovechkin have missed games... But i think that Canadians are just as good as the Russians. Well mean these lines Canada has a way better overall team...

    Two pretty amazing lines. I'd say the Russians have more front end talent. Much higher skill level even than Canada's top trio. Hopefully Canada still has the better team.

    Kovie missed quite a few games as well. There's no question the Russians have the better line. It's not even close. The coach of the Russian team must be drooling over that line.

    You can't say its not even close because it is very close. The Canadian line is no joke....

    The Russian's top line is amazing. On paper, it is significantly better. But yes, Canada has much better depth

    lol your talking about first lines but look at the potential second lines:

    Heatley-Thornton-Marleau vs. Semin-Datsyuk/Malkin-Kovalev

    With the potential depth issues for Russia, Ovie - Malkin - Kovalchuk should not be a line.

    Ovie - Datyuk - Semin
    Kovalchuk - Malkin - Kovalev

    looks a lot better as a one two punch.

    If Ovechkin, Malkin, and Datsyuk stepped out on the ice at the same time, I'd probably just head to the locker room.

    He woulda been ****ed in Washington...
    Update: Turns out he was ****ed in Kansas City too
