Boris Mikhailov (#13) – Vladimir Petrov (#16) – Valery Kharlamov (#17)
To me, it was the best line ever.
Younger fans might disagree. They would probably pick the KLM line.
Older fans seldom express their opinion on the web.
They probably would go with the Loktev-Almetov-Alexandrov line. Maybe, Vikulov-Polupanov-Alexandrov.
To me, it was Petrov’s troyka.
Mikhailov – Petrov – Kharlamov

Memory sometimes fail.
Stats are carved in stone in the history books.
Old memorabilia like these vintage porcelain figurines sometimes pop-up on eBay or other auctions.
Video clips are streaming via hundreds of YouTube accounts.
Discussion on who was the best line ever never ends.
We remember them.
In my history book, they were the best.
