. 4th line should play its 6-7 min per game. If someone does a good job, it doesn't mean he has to be given more work or got promoted right away. You play Dubi and his midgets against best lines and they will get killed and people who, as usual, fail to see that will call for Malik's head again afterwards or whatever... Betts line remains the best line we have. When they are on the ice, our defense and goalie look good. Kudos to them.
If this line can score consistantly than it should be the third line. In the new NHL top three lines are for scoring, while the 4th line is a grinding line. So if they can produce at a pace of a about a goal every other game or so than they are a true third line. Unfortunately the Betts line isn't a true 3rd line but they are being used by one. The Betts line is a true 4th line.
