Through six games, the Wild have scored 16 goals. Eleven of these have been scored by the Wild’s first line – five by Zach Parise, four by Dany Heatley, and two by Mikko Koivu. Only two other forwards have even scored this year.
It’s probably time that we come up with a name for this line, because calling it “the Koivu-Parise-Heatley line” doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue. Here are some suggestions, with a few cross-outs as well.
- Traitor, Badger, Finn
- HPK America
- The One True Line
The KPH LineConsidered and rejected. This ain’t Canada, hippie.
- The Everything We Own Line
- The 23 Million Dollar Line
- The Never Won an NCAA Championship Line
Play This Line, Then Stall For TimeThat doesn’t even rhyme.
It’s becoming clear that there are no good line names.
