Penner makes the third line C make sense because:
- Between Hemsky, Horcoff, Cole, Gagner, Nilsson, Cogliano, and Penner, someone is going to play on the third line therefore asking them to alter their game.
- Anyone who thinks Moreau and Pisani won't play on the third line is on glue. They will get there 15-17 minute a night because they are veteran, responsible 2 way players, momentum changers, with modest offensive output when healthy.
- Sorry guys but the 4th line belongs to the kids that are not the GNC line. Pouliot, Brodziak, Stortini, et al will have to continue to cut their teeth down there unless someone stumbles. The ones that have proven themselves will get the first crack.
So bringing in another veteran would just muck things up further. It would just knock everyone further down the ranks.
