See, it isn't a problem when you have one guy on your team like that, as long as he is a huge contributor in other ways, which Betts is. He's an excellent defensive forward, he's a good faceoff man, he's a great penalty killer and he's a solid team guy who by all indications is well-liked.

The problem is when you have three guys like that on your team, as was the case with Hollweg, Betts and Orr. The difference is Hollweg is useless while Orr is only really needed for fighting.

I have no problem with Betts being the full-time 4th line center as long as Hollweg is gone and Orr only plays when necessary.
