fightingsioux4life Posted December 13, 2015 Share Posted December 13, 2015 (edited) With the buzz being generated by the CBS line this season, it got me to thinking about the other great forward lines in the history of this storied program. With the help of USCHO.com and the 2013-14 Men's Hockey Media Guide, I have compiled the statistics of the CBS line, along with four other potent lines from previous teams: Line/PlayerGPGoalsAssistsPointsPPG Hrkac Circus (1986-87) Tony Hrkac4846701162.42Bob Joyce485237891.85Steve Johnson482644701.46Totals481241512751.91 Line of Fire (2000-01) Jeff Panzer462655811.76Bryan Lundbohm463237691.50Ryan Bayda462534591.28Totals46831262091.51 The Money Line (2003-04) Brandon Bochenski412733601.46Zach Parise372332551.49Brady Murray371927461.24Totals3869921611.40 DOT Line (2006-07) Ryan Duncan433126571.33T.J.

This gives us an overall picture of how potent each line was/is based on overall production per game. The “Games Played Totals” figure is uniform for the Hrkac Circus and Line of Fire, but the other three lines had one player that didn’t play as many games as the other two players on that line. So this number represents the average number of games played for that line. I did not know how else to treat that column. Through 20 games (including tonight), the CBS line is on track to rank amongst the best lines in program history. They are approaching the productivity of the DOT line and may even make a run at The Money Line and the Line of Fire before the season is over.
