i gotta laugh. anyone who wants to put a promising youngster like korpedo or even cally on the 4th line doesnt get it. the 4th line does NOT take a regular shift. they get skipped alot. they play less minutes and the shifts are shorter. we are not going to "roll 4 lines" unless you consider going out for 25 sec and then coming off when theres a face off or a stoppage getting a "shift". 4th liners dont play the pp and come off immediately if we get one. no one wants any youth on the 4th line playing so few minutes. wouldnt we rather have them in hartford developing and playing more meaningful minutes.
guys like rismiller, sjo, orr and betts ARE 4th line types already.
the impact lines are always the top 9 guys on every team. 4th line guys are checkers, muckers, instigators and fighters and guys with lobster claws in their gloves.
