Although off to a slow start, Heatley and Spezza will prevail. Thornton and Cheechoo a close second.

Right now Hossa and Kovalchuk have been the deadliest duo. Stats don't lie and look at the season their team is having. Now Lehtonen is a huge part of that but they aren't winning games just 1-0 either.

Henrik and Daniel! These guys are finally turning into the superstars that they had the potential to be when they were drafted. Looks like a good trade now: McCabe is overrated and having the twins puts the Canucks in a much better spot.

I gotta say Heatley and Spezza. Proven in battle and they're just coming into their own. Having said that, everyone of the tandems listed could win on any given day.

Ahh but you see what happens? Anytime there is an option related to either the Canucks, Flames or Oilers, that one will always win in this forum (unless the word "worst" is involved). I love the whole poll idea for this forum but it's way too biased to reflect realistic results.

I mean seriously... the Sedins as the best duo in the league? Where's Crosby-Malkin, Marleau-Michalek, Briere-Afinogenov, Sakic-Svatos....?

Well stop whining and create your own poll then. Anyone can create one now.

In the Sedins defense, nhl.com has them at 28pts.
Hossa/Kovachuk - 29pts
Jagr/Shannahan - 25pts
Gionta/Gomez - 24pts
Thornton/Cheechoo - 20pts
Heatley/Spezza - 16pts
Gaborik/Demitra - 15pts

So I don't think your "bias" statement holds much water. PS I live in California.

I dont see an oiler or flames duo here - do you? The Sedins have 14 points each so they deserve consideration. Hossa and Kovalchuk are my vote because Hossa is probably the most underrated superstar and Kovalchuk is a stud. He doesnt get the press that Crosby and Ovechkin get but he is just as good.

It's not bias... the Canucks are just the best team in the league.

The Wild duo have the skill to be the best but they don't have the health. Gaborik's out now and it's just a matter of time before Demitra gets hurt. I like both players though, especially Demitra.

Yeah, I would have to agree with dropping the Sedin sisters off the top of the poll....you guys are what I like to call Stat-Chasers. Would you have picked those 2 at the beginning of this season? At the end of last season?

I guess it depende on how you read the question....maybe "Who is the best scoring duo RIGHT NOW in the league that best compliment each other's style?" Then, I might pick them

Finally someone who speaks from wisdom. I still wouldn't pick them any way you worded the question though... What have they done in the past week?

Fair enough but when I set the poll they were tied for second in scoring. I wanted to give props for some Canadian Teams. Tucker and Sundin are lighting it up lately - should I have included them? Whatever...

Yeah, where is Crosby-Malkin?? They've gotta be by far the best duo in the NHL. And the other 3 don't look bad either.

Like goon said, the Ottawa top players will get going and take down the league. Thornton and Cheechoo will be close though.

The Sedin's??? How in the hell do they belong on this list?? They are both barely over a 1/2 point a game players?? Niether have been anywhere near the top 10 in score, not even the top 20?? Do you watch the same game that everyone else does??

Well like goon said earlier, they were near the top when the poll was started. But skill-wise they just aren't the best.

My duo of Marleau-Michalek is looking better and better every day.

the poll question was on the 26th of October when the Sedins were 1 point out of 1st place. Malkin had barely played a game at the time. So on the 26th the stats, as per Ripley's post above, looked like this:

Sedin/Sedin - 28pts.
Hossa/Kovachuk - 29pts
Jagr/Shannahan - 25pts
Gionta/Gomez - 24pts
Thornton/Cheechoo - 20pts
Heatley/Spezza - 16pts
Gaborik/Demitra - 15pts

And where are the Sedin's now?? 36 points combined. That's only 20 away from Hossa and Kovalchuk and 17 away from Jagr and Shannahan. How are they getting enough votes to be second in this poll?? Must be a lot of Vancouver fans here.

Yeah, great point. For example, what have they done in the last three minutes? You idiot! You might have to look at the year to date and not just the last game or two. Thanks for coming out!!

Well thanks for your wonderful insight...

There is a slight difference between 3 minutes and 3 games. What good was it to have them do well for the first 8-9 games when they haven't done anything since? Do you enjoy inconsistency?

Ok let's play it your way: when this poll was created they were what, like 2nd and 4th in scoring or something.

Year-to-date: Henrik is 31st and Daniel is 42nd in scoring.
Year-to-date: In a combined 38 games played, they have a combined 9 goals (compared to Hossa/Kovalchuk's 29, Jagr/Shanahan's 22, Marleau/Michalek's 20 etc.)
Year-to-date: Their team is only one point above 11th place in their Conference.

You should get your facts (and opinions) straight next time before making insulting comments like you just have.

Thank YOU for coming out.

MORE LIKE THE WORST TEAM EVER!!!!!!! they are the only Canadian team to never win the cup(technically Ottawa did win the cup, they just dispersed and ressurected, so none of their cups counted) I think that the Canucks suck ass. Regardless I voted for Hossa and Kovalchuk, both of them are in the top 4 in the league in scoring.

I dont see alot of comments about Hossa & Kovalchuk even though there easily the best duo out of those picks right now. Second would be Heatley&Spezza 3rd Jagr&Shanahan

How about St. Louis/Lecavalier...

They are now the second highest-scoring duo in the league behind Jagr-Straka and they're on fire. They have a combined 18 points in the last 3 games, that's amazing. I'm so glad I picked them both, they were steals in our draft.

Wow, this poll is old! lol

I said Jagr-Shanahan. Close second would be Hossa-Kovalchuk or Thornton-Cheechoo.

I know, just throwing them out there as they don't seem to be getting the props they deserve for being the highest scoring duo in the league.
