He's not tough, he doesn't fight or scare other teams from attacking our players, he doesn't bring experience, he's not a shootout/face-off/PP/PK specialist, he's useless, and could have been replaced by a better UFA player.

I would rather roll 3 good lines with an enforcer, and a couple of specialists to spare, rather than roll 4 mediocre lines.

With the level of conditioning most players have, the conventional 4th line is obsolete IMO.
I disagree and I wont spend one second debating your biased opinion as I feel it would be a waste of time.
