Creating the best possible lines from the NHL’s 2022 All-Star roster

SMG Logo By Mary Clarke of SMG | Slide 2 of 5: I lovingly dub this line the "over-30" line. Or the "nostalgia" line for long-time NHL fans like myself. Alex Ovechkin, Claude Giroux and Chris Kreider have all made All-Star appearances before -- Giroux and Ovechkin have seven and eight respectively -- and are also grizzled NHL veterans. Sure, together they may not be as fast or as relentless as some of the other younger lines on this list, but they still have jump in their step. Also Ovechkin (24) and Kreider (21) are top-six in the NHL in scoring this season because what's old is new again.
